Goal

The goal for this grant is to support my students sustained inquiry throughout our project based learning units. Research is required in order to collect information, synthesize ideas, and arrive at solutions for certain problems. 

 

What will be done with my students

Besides developing their critical thinking, creativity, and communication skills in the context of doing an authentic, meaningful project, my students will be engaged in acquiring a deeper knowledge of different topics through active exploration of real-world challenges and problems. This project will be permanently integrated throughout the school year to support the science and social standards while the students apply their reading researching strategies. First, students will develop inquiry questions for their sustained inquiry, next, students will explore their inquiry questions through the digital world, then the students will reflect upon their progress using SeeSaw, student digital portfolio, last, students will create a meaningful, authentic project through the use of media presentations.  

 

Benefits to my students

The old-school model of passively learning facts and reciting them out of context is no longer sufficient to prepare students to survive in today's world. Solving highly complex problems requires that students have both fundamental skills (reading, writing, and math) and 21st century skills (teamwork, problem solving, research gathering, time management, information synthesizing, utilizing high tech tools). With this combination of skills, students become directors and managers of their learning process, guided and mentored by a skilled teacher. 

 

Budget Narrative

The 5 ipads will allow for more technology access for research and inquiry purposes. In addition, it will allow students to use different apps that will support and develop their creative authentic projects.
