21st Century Technology

My students need Apple TV to allow us to easily complete Smart Board activities. They will also use Apple TV to display their reading responses from their iPads.

My Students

Do you use technology every day? What would you do without your computer or iPad or smart phone? The students at my school go most days without touching technology with their own hands. We need to prepare them for life after high school. They need to be tech savvy to have the best opportunities.

My students are below grade-level readers in Kindergarten through 5th grade.

I need to get them excited about reading and writing and learning in general if I want them to catch up to their peers. Technology is the one thing they all get excited about. Apple TV will allow my students to use technology every day. We will use the Smart Board more, and one iPad will become a learning experience for all students without them having to wait for a turn.

My Project

Apple TV will allow me to run Smart Board activities from behind my students. I will not have to be hard wired into my Smart Board. Students will have a better view of the activities and will even be able to run the activities. When we do use the iPad, everyone can see the iPad screen on the Smart Board. We can all learn from one device.

Technology is everywhere.

Many jobs use some type of technology. The students in my school do not have enough access to personal technology. They go most days without touching a piece of technology. Apple TV will allow us to individualize our technology use. Students will have more access to devices. Students will be excited about learning. Students will be engaged and be that much closer to a grade-level reader.
