    My Students

    I am a technology integration facilitator for our district and work with K-12 students from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds and diverse needs. Our students are very dynamic and need hands-on experiences! One aspect all of our students share is their passion for learning new technologies! This year, my aim is to engage and ignite a life long learning passion, using 21st century technologies among our students in an inclusive classroom environment. They are the future innovators that will solve tomorrow's global issues.

    How will this project impact them?

    Students will use Virtual Reality sets to experience curriculum content and competencies making them relevant. They will have opportunities to explore otherwise inaccessible locations and landmarks, such as the international space, museums, underwater or the great pyramids of Egypt. They could also use applications such as Labster to do virtual scientific labs. The goal is to improve learning outcomes by increasing students’ engagement and helping them better understand some concepts by experiencing them through virtual reality. With a 360 camera, students will be able to create their own virtual trip. For example highschool students could create a trip to our school to present it to the middle school students who will soon be there. As the technology facilitator, these kits would benefit all of the Gr.6-12 classes in our district, travelling from school to school.
