My Students

My students are very lively and are bursting with personality! They need to turn their energy and "people skills" into productive yet entertaining educational movies. My students live in the inner city. Sadly, many of the students lack the resources and support to have technology experience at home.

Unfortunately, with the cuts and lack of funding, our schools are having difficulty providing the necessary provisions to help our students prepare and compete in the 21st century.

I only have outdated computers, which half the time do not work.

My Project

With larger than past class sizes, our classroom technology is lacking. These Fire Tablets will allow my students to do all the district subscribed mandatory programs during the school day. These tablets are very effective, not only in cost but also in size for little first grade hands. We are required to use district purchased programs but do not have the technology to fully implement the programs.

The students will be able to read books, engage in our reading program, play our math fact fluency games, and also have fun while learning.

With these six tablets, my classroom will fully transform into a 21st Century classroom. This would also prepare my students for the future of learning with technology.
