What’s your first and last name?
- Robin Rodriquez
What do you teach / what is your ‘title’ at school?
- 5th & 6th grade Science Teacher
How are you involved in education?
- I teach 5th and 6th grade Science to the most inquisitive students! I am a bonafide Tech-Ninja at a campus that has plunged into classroom technology like a champion! We are 1:1 with iPads and our Science team has been a significant part in helping our site to get excited about helping our students use technology on a daily basis.
What does your ideal school or classroom look like?
- Students enter the classroom and retrieve their i-devices and start working on their bellwork while the teacher takes role giving each student present a positive mark in Class Dojo. Students then log into their Drive accounts to get the lesson for the day. After listening to either a live or recorded instructional session and then get into cooperative groups for the activity of the day. Once or twice a week, the class participates in a hands-on activity. Data collected is turned into a presentation using an app on the iPads and submitted via Google Drive.
If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?
- Classkick – This app allows me to build an assignment for the students to work on at their own pace. That is not the best part, I can go online, from anywhere, and watch my students working on the lesson! I was at a workshop in Tulsa, watching my students in Clinton in real time working on the assignment that I had left them. AWESOME!!
