Netbooks for Math Program

Educator Name: Deborah Sherman
School Name: Meadowbrook Elementary

Math and technology are important keys to preparing our students for the future. Our students need opportunities to engage in technology in the classroom on a daily basis. My idea is to provide those opportunities with the purchase and daily use of 6 Netbooks that can be used specifically during math instruction to model, demonstrate, guide and facilitate independent practice of key math skills.

Netbooks will be used to utilize math tools and games needed to facilitate problem solving and skill instruction. The Netbooks will help implement Everyday Math online curriculum provided by our district but unable to fully use in the classroom due to the lack of computer access.
