Students Use Technology to Capture Their Learning

We never stop learning and students at our school are no exception! Students have embraced technology as a way to assist them in their learning. With the use of various devices, kids are able to capture their learning and gather feedback that will drive their learning. 


Take a look at a few examples through these very short videos:

Grade 5 Class
Mr. Marco Trujillo's 5th grade class took a trip into the Huasteca Canyon to meet face-to-face the forces of nature that have shaped our land. They took along iPods and recorded what they saw.

Spanish Class
Ms. Gaby de la Garza and her first grade students took advantage of the shared iPads to record themselves reading Spanish books that they later listened to again.

Music Class
Ms. Misty Flores and Mr. Ryan Branta encourage students to record their practice and check on their progress.

Kinder Class
Ms. Magda Arechavaleta and Ms. Miriam Campas incorporated iPods when they took their group on a Nature Walk around the school to collect items, both physical and digital.


Movement Class
Ms. Vero Martinez and Ms. Graciela Livas placed iPods in the tiny hands of preschool kids. They recorded each other's movements and after watching the video they reflected on their performance.

Like these, we can find numerous other instances around the school that demonstrate how technology has become second nature to students and how kids are constructing their learning.


Cheers!
