Blended Learning at Diamond Ridge Elementary
Diamond Ridge has one Chromebook for every student in all grade levels this year. Their School Technology Specialist, Ashley Moore, works with teachers and students in the classroom to help them integrate the technology in fun and meaningful ways.
On this visit to Diamond Ridge, Ashley pushed into a fifth grade class with Mrs. George and a first grade class with Mrs. Harbaugh.
Cindy George, 5th Grade
Mrs. George’s 5th graders learned about using onomatopoeia in their writing and picked up some new tech skills along the way.
They then posted their poems to a shared wall using Padlet, where all the poems could be enjoyed by the whole class.
Stephanie Harbaugh, 1st Grade
Mrs. Harbaugh’s 1st graders learned about the life cycle of a pumpkin and practiced using the Chromebook trackpad.
Ashley taught Mrs. Harbaugh how to use LanSchool with her students, so that getting websites and documents out to her little learners is easy.
Many thanks to Mrs. Moore, Mrs. George, Mrs. Harbaugh, and their students at Diamond Ridge Elementary for allowing us a peek into their blended learning classroom activities.
