My Students

I am a 1st grade dual immersion Spanish teacher! I have two classes of 34 students each and in my class, they are learning Spanish all day, every day. We never speak English in my class and it is amazing to see how quickly they learn and catch on, even at 6 and 7 years old!

My Project

I have really enjoyed teaching my students how to use technology to further their learning and showing them how Spanish learning can be fun and easy on various applications such as Reflex Math, Raz-Kids, and Kahoot. This also comes in handy when the students have to login and use these resources at home, and they've done it in class, so they know how and don't need a ton of extra support.

The challenge is that for my class of 34 students I only have 15 iPads available to me.

That is not even a 2-1 ratio and makes it difficult for me to effectively use the technology that I do have. If I had more iPads I would be able to take up less class time using the iPads because I could split my students into two groups instead of three, making their learning more efficient. It would also help we do certain activities as an entire class the students could share an iPad with a partner instead of having to be in groups of three or more.
