My Students

We live in a digital society. Our classrooms have long evolved from chalkboards and pencil and paper. We seek to integrate technology into our daily learning. While we love to have our students work towards our 21 century goals in technology, we lack the resources.

I teach at a Title One School in Eastern North Carolina whose learners include impoverished students, English language learners, students with special needs and a variety of diverse learners.

My classroom comprises of 100% of students receiving free breakfast and lunch. The majority of these students do not have accessibility to technology at home. School is this only place where they have access to technology in an ever changing technologically rich society.

My Project

Our standards encourage students to integrate technology into all areas of the curriculum. However our budget does not address the lack of 21st century technology tools for each of our students. I believe that the use of Kindle Fire devices across our curriculum can intensify student engagement while connecting the students to the world around them. Students are required to collaborate, research and create but the lack the resources needed to do so.

My vision for the use of Kindle Fires in our classroom would be to support literacy using individual and small group instruction, to provide access to non-fiction resources, build vocabulary and reading comprehension, research current events and use a variety of curriculum based applications.

Kindle Fires allow for individualized learning. When children are given ownership of the learning and learning experience, students perform stronger academically. The use of technology will support that choice for my students.
