An Apple for Teaching

Help me give my students and I an Apple iPad, keyboard, and Pencil to create dynamic lessons and provide quick and effective feedback on writing.

My Students

I teach high school English in Houston's East End neighborhood. My campus is Title I, and the majority of my students are Latinx, African-American, and Vietnamese. East End is a vibrant, diverse community with a rich history and culture. My students have had to prove their resilience time and time again. Many of my students do not have access to the tools for successful distant learning. With this lack of access, many students are having difficulties adjusting to the challenges of distance learning in this new digital setting.

Nothing is impossible for my students.

Despite being away from school and facing even more challenges due to the current global pandemic, my students remain enthusiastic about learning. They are enrolled in our campus' advanced classes and are committed to pursuing post-secondary education. They challenge me to keep things fun, rigorous and engaging each day.

My Project

On March 13, 2020, the face of education changed. Many schools closed their physical buildings and shifted to an online module. I, along with many teachers, quickly struggled to adjust my lessons to fit a digital format. We did this despite not having the time or the proper technology.

An Apple iPad with a Pencil and keyboard will be very useful both during distance learning and when we return to the traditional classroom.

Even during a global pandemic, students deserve a quality education and lessons. With the functionality of an iPad, I will have the ability to share and record high-quality videos, annotate written work, and live stream classes on multiple platforms. When we return to the classroom I will use the iPad to remediate topics and allow students to practice writing.
