Having access to iPads will make a difference for my students by giving them a new approach to learning. I feel strongly that they will be engaged in activities that will give them opportunities to problem-solve, create, share and research. The iPads will be used in a variety of situations. I will have students use them throughout different units of study, such as our "Flight" unit. With the use of the iPads, my flight unit would go beyond traditional methods of simply using texts and discussions. I would have students access online activities for researching information on the history of flight (Who were the Wright Brothers? Who were the first to land on the moon?), exploring aerodynamics (how do paper airplanes fly?), understanding forces and motion (video clips and animations), building timelines of important events, writing their own newspaper article to share on padlet, and even building a virtual plane. Having access to iPads will increase engagement and the rigor of learning about engineering history, aerodynamics, and forces and motion. In addition to the Flight unit, I could use the iPads to practice math skills each day. Apps such as Xtramath and Geoboard would be utilized to meet the needs of the wide variety of learners in my class. This would not only be a discreet way of practicing specific sets of math facts, but also a new approach as compared with paper and pencil. My project will make a difference because it will enable me to create more exciting units of study, such as the Flight unit. I would love to have the opportunity to advance my students into a more technology-driven curriculum.
