Grade 12 Government & Politics
My students would benefit from the accessability of Smartboard technology. This would add an a level of learning not current available such as active critical side-bar comments to documents such as health care reform remedies posed by both political parties and other groups vested in transforming how medical coverage will change.
My Philosophy:
All students can learn. But not always on the same day and in the same way. Some students shine when they are able to present with the use of technology. I have seen students become active learners because of thier interests in fully presenting their ideas with realtime facts.
