While the use of technology has become increasingly important in education, we have unfortunately had a limited amount of devices available to students in our school. We have stuck exclusively to paper and pencil tasks and have been unable to advance our student body’s capacity to use computers and other devices. In addition, we use a significant amount of paper each week for our lessons (approximately 5 sheets of paper per day per student). To shift towards a more technologically rich math program, we would like to start using iPads for our daily instruction. Through the use of Google Classrooms, we would be able to electronically push assignments out to our classes for students to complete on their iPads, rather than on paper. With these iPads students will have access to interactive online tools like Desmos graphing calculator, a wide range of instructional videos developed by our staff, and access to the many other instructional resources online. Students would develop electronic organization skills and a fluency with technology that will be valuable to them for the rest of their lives. Many schools have already begun shifting to a one-to-one model for technology in which each student is assigned an iPad for use in and out of school. We need to be able to keep up with these schools in order to give our students the technologically rich education they deserve.
