The iPad requested will go directly to supporting students who have a hearing loss, specifically those who are Deaf and have no access to sound. The inability to hear phonics presents a challenge when trying to work on literacy development. Visual supports and immediate access to digital examples and extension activities creates a visual rich environment where these children have the exposure to materials that support connections to the meaning of a word and reading comprehension. Since the inception of the iPad, it has been proven to be a valuable teaching tool. I will use an iPad during reading and language instruction to help these students in making connections visually as well as keep them engaged through the interactive and motivating nature of a digital teaching tool. Many classrooms are fortunate to have a Smart Board to help bring up student involvement, while an itinerant is not always afforded the same luxury. The iPad can help create a mini Smart Board for the traveling teacher. We are committed to closing the gap that these students have in learning to read to only support their ability to read to learn!
