Access Learning Through Technology

My students need an iPad, Mac mini and a stylus.

My Students

Technology is the new gatekeeper to education. Students are motivated by it and it allows them to use another mode to communicate what they know.

Our classroom is an ECE classroom with students with various special learning needs.

We have the best group of kids who are eager to learn. We have 7 students with ages ranging from 2nd grade to 5th grade. Our learning needs are as diverse as our school but we meet the needs of everyone.

My Project

Our classroom revolves around our 2 iPads and SmartBoard. Our students rotate in 3 groups for language arts, social studies, science, math, and writing. Our students also access learning by visiting general education classrooms each day. This becomes difficult with only 2 iPads to share among the 3 groups. An additional iPad will allow each group to share access to research-based apps, as well as provide a great incentive! The Mac Mini will make using the SmartBoard faster and smoother. We can also use apps on the SmartBoard with a Mac Mini! The pack of stylus will allow our students to practice holding a pencil when using the iPads.

We all know technology is becoming a bigger part of our lives each and every day.

It is my duty to prepare students for this when they leave my classroom. I want my students to become independent 21st century learners. With this donation, we are 3 steps closer to achieving this.
