An Apple For The Class!

My students need an iPad to work on reading and math skills using technology of today.

My Students

A typical day in my classroom is very exciting, upbeat and full of curiosity. I also learn something new everyday in our classroom setting. My classroom is a place where students are always encouraged to question and speak their thoughts. I have taught my students to do so without fear or shame.

These young learners are fortunate enough to go to a school that is not Title one, but because of that our classroom is not funded the way a Title 1 school would be.

Our classroom is limited in the amount of supplies, books and technology to aid in meeting their needs. Our school does not have a technology class and are only given a limited amount of time and experience on a desktop computer throughout a school week. I have a colorful group of students who come from different parts of the globe (Middle East, Asia, Africa, Hawaii and other U.S. States) who range from high, average and low academic levels. We are very lucky to have students who come from diverse places as it has already enriched our learning environment with experiences that some of us aren't able to attain.

My Project

Having an iPad in my classroom will bring a source of technology to each and every one of my students. They will learn how to operate such an advance technological device that some children are not fortunate enough to have access to at home. They will learn to use the applications that will enrich their learning and develop their academic skills in the various subjects that I teach. Engagement will never be an issue as the iPad is highly interactive and students will anxiously await their turn.

In this day and age technology runs our world and students are being required to take state and other assessments using iPads, computers, as well as other sources of technology.

The problem that we face my classroom because I am new to the school and to the state of Nevada is a limited amount of collected resources and the absence of technology for students to use on a daily basis.
