week 13

I think the biggest challenges that teachers face/will face with computer science is accessibility. It would be wonderful if every school had the same amount and kind of technology but that is not reality. It may be hard to implement some of these standards without some of the technology.

I also think it would be hard to find the time if it is a piece of technology that I am not familiar with.

Fear and Learning at Hoover Elementary

This documentary definitely pulled on my heartstrings a lot which I think it was intended to do. It is absolutely terrifying to me that there are young kids experiencing the things that the young kids in this documentary experienced. No one should watch or see someone die, especially not a 10-year-old child. I hope to be more than just a teacher for my future students. I want to do more than just teach these kids math… I want to teach them equality and inform them of different cultures. It was so shocking to see that the school has bullet holes in it and that some of the teachers are just blaming these kids. I was so happy to see the kids standing up for themselves when the librarian was blaming them for how dirty LA is.

I chose this picture because it spoke volumes to me. We need to be helping people not hurting them or making it any harder. Immigrants come to America for a better life not to ruin our country or to take our jobs.

Final Project Update

I have definitely progressed a lot further than my last update. I’m not too sure I’ll have a full blanket for a person of my size by the time I have to bring it to class though, I might have to bring in a baby blanket. I definitely underestimated how much time I would be able to dedicate to this project.
