Teaching Diverse Learning students, in a classroom with 18 students, with limited access to resources, especially technology, is hindering students abilities to learn at a fast pace. This is causing the gap to remain the same or even grow. Diverse learning students need to have access to small groups and multiple modes of representation. With a classroom of students who are learning from a range of Kindergarten to 3rd Grade, small groups are essential. It is important for students to be able to work independently during small group time so that students who are working in their guided group can receive full attention and support. Many of my students are unable to independently read or write. That is why technology is so important. By using an iPad during small group instruction, students will have access to programs that can help build foundational skills, such as, phonics and phonemic awareness, audio books and audio comprehension questions, and voice to text programs to help build comprehension skills and writing skills. It will also give them access to programs that will help build their math skills by providing access to pictorial representations, numerical representations, and even manipulate objects on the screen to help increase their foundational math skills. I have a few students that have been diagnosed with Autism. The cover for the iPad will help keep it safe so that our classroom can benefit for using this resource for many years. This would be an incredible addition to our classroom that can improve students ability to learn and shrink the gap!
