My name is Megan Fleet and I hope that you had a wonderful summer! I feel like my family explored every slide and zoo in the state of Colorado. Our busy two year old, Crosby, loves all things outdoors! After a wonderful summer with family and friends, I'm ready to get back to the excitement of all things tech at GRE!
I'm so excited to be starting my thirteenth year in education and my fourth year as the Technology Specialist at Gold Rush Elementary. I truly believe that I have the best job in the school because I get to watch inquiry exploration in action with each student each day.
I draw on my previous intermediate classroom experiences to help plan meaningful technology integrated lessons that allow students to use their learning device and robotics to master grade level curriculum.
Last year we rolled out our one to one learning device initiative and opened up a STEAM lab with various robotics and science engineering legos. I can't wait to see how student learning and engagement continue to blossom this year.
We will continue to utilize Dash & Dot to build problem solving skills and to make connections to math curriculum like area and perimeter.
In addition to our Dash & Dot robotics, this year we will be exploring Lego WeDo's in grades 3-5. With these robots students will build different items using little legos and then program them with a variety of motors and sensors.
