My students attend our program after school and often come from very different backgrounds. Their parents are primarily working, so they use after school time as an extension of learning and fun. We strive to bring balance to their after school time, and provide a safe and structured place where they can be creative and learn at the same time! I have one of the most diverse student groups, both culturally and in their life experiences. However, most of the students do not come from homes where anything educational is highly valued. Students often arrive to class without necessary materials in order to get the most out of their instructional time.
These tablets would benefit my students in a variety of ways! With the use of these tablets students will achieve mathematical, leadership and creative success.I would use tablets as a after school management tool, such as offering game time as a reward. These tablets would also benefit the students' needs. These tablets would give me the ability to adapt materials to meet the needs of all students, even those who have an IEP in which visual and audio features are a must. Overall, these tablets help make learning more engaging and interactive. Students would also use these tablets for presentations, projects and educational apps.
Our program is motivated by the vision of APS-CLL Grow.Lead.
Transform in which we strive to prepare our students to be college and career ready.
