Teacher wants to improve student learning in technology
GEORGETOWN, SC (WCSC) – A Georgetown teacher is helping her students explore the ever-expanding world of computer technology.
For the past two years, Angelia Jackson has been teaching business education and computer science to high school students at the Georgetown Career Center.
She says her goal is to teach computer basics with an emphasis on using a hands-on approach.
Jackson hopes to give her 77 students the opportunity to explore the ins and outs of robotics, coding, typing, web design and computer basics, which she says won’t will only help its students in our technology-based world and increase their literacy and desire to learn and use new technologies to their advantage.
To do this, Jackson says she needs help with school supplies.
“I’ve found in the classroom and in Georgetown, a lot of students aren’t aware of the impact of computers on the workforce,” Jackson says. “These materials will give my students the opportunity to focus on practical technology that is in the world right now.”
For his Donor’s Choose project, Jackson is requesting two LEGO Education SPIKE Prime sets.
She says the sets will allow her students to learn computer science and open many other technology-based open doors. she says that right now she has one set to share with the students, but hopes to collect two in this project.
“These Legos give them that experience because it helps them plan and think, it helps them analyze and bring their imaginations to life,” Jackson says.
Jackson says the best part of her job is seeing the creativity shine in her students. This Donors Choose project, titled “Coding Bulldogs,” needs $900 to be fully funded.
