Learning about Deforestation
One of the Rowntree Montessori Schools’ goals is to ensure that our students learn the skill of problem solving, but not just in the classroom. We want our students to take these skills and have the ability to apply them in everyday life. With this in mind, our students are tasked with developing solutions to real-world problems.
Recently our students were taught about the issue of Deforestation in their social studies class. Students learned about different countries that are affected by deforestation and had the opportunity to label these countries on a world map, using a Smart Board. Students had the chance to learn about a real world problem using state-of-the-art technology.
There are many benefits of students learning using technology, such as the Smart Board, in the classroom. Smart Boards are interactive, low maintenance, provide access to a wealth of online resources, are environmentally friendly, provide better visuals, accommodate different styles of learning, and help integrate technology in the classroom.
