Nancy Ely (Alameda - Wood Middle School)
Wood Middle School is a Title I school with 65% of the students eligible for assistance. This project builds on a successful after school program for students focused on creating animations and repairing/refurbishing donated computers. Through this grant, the students will design and build programmable robots using the new LEGO EV3 platform. This robotics curriculum will offer an open-ended, problem-solving approach to engage students in learning science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and encourage them to use communication skills, gain confidence, and work collaboratively in teams.
Kirsten Hansen-Aliamus (San Ramon - Walt Disney Elementary School)
The objective of this project is to expand children’s ability to compose different kinds of writing aligned with the Common Core Standards using iPad minis and Wixie, a cloud based tool to engage children in reading and writing. Kindergarten students will be able to respond critically to stories by drawing pictures, writing, and recording narration. They will be able to draw and write opinions on informative and explanatory texts.
Kari Stewart (Walnut Creek - Walnut Creek Intermediate School)
This project immerses students in research, problem solving, and real-world learning using Chromebooks. Students research local flora or fauna, distinguish among contrasting characteristics and create a dichotomous key using Google Maps. Then, they connect the map with environmental issues relevant to the San Francisco Bay Area, human impact on the environment, and conservation.
