How can we promote the use of
technology in the classroom to ensure
all students are provided with rich
engaging lessons?
The Student Board Can!
K-5 th Grade Student Tech Board
• Find and compile a list of apps/tools to use in the classroom
• Students provided with a list of topics/kid-friendly standards for
each grade level
• Students will explain rationale for using the tool in the classroom
• Share tools with teachers
Zora Ball, First grade, mobile game app
Anvitha Vijay, Third grade, iPad/iPhone app
Thomas Suarez, Fifth grade, i-Pad app
• 4-6 dedicated, knowledgeable students per grade level (chosen based off of
interest survey as well as teacher recommendation)
• Every Monday during recess (30 minutes)
• Third grade pod
• Access to Borowy’s computers and Media’s I-Pads
• 5th graders responsible for sharing tools in an organized google folder that all
teachers have access to
• Teachers will attend a technology PD once a month where students will discuss
the tools they found and together they will plan a lesson using a tool.
• Take the responsibility off of the teachers
• Listen to student voice
• Create lessons and activities that are engaging for students
