We live in South Texas and I have a wonderful group of kiddos in my class. My classroom consists of students with various learning styles. I have several students who are English language learners, some with special educational needs due to learning difficulties including two with dyslexia, a couple who are gifted and talented, and others with ADHD and behavioral problems. This diverse group of students are always eager to learn and wild about incorporating anything technology into their projects, assignments, and activities! They work hard daily and their enthusiasm for learning grows when they hear that hands-on technology will somehow be involved in their work! They have shown motivation, commitment, responsibility, and patience when it is time to use the limited amount of technology and resources available in my classroom to complete assignments. They deserve the opportunity to extend and enrich their learning with more digital and electronic learning devices for the classroom!
Technology has been an extraordinary addition to our classroom, but we have been very limited in our resources. I’ve selected an iPad Mini to add to my classroom because it will allow my students to be more creative and tech savvy. These devices help them create digital books through apps like Pages, iBooks Author, Book Creator and Storybird. They can photograph and record academic content to add to their digital journal with apps such as Seesaw and Flipgrid. They will present and share activities through creative and innovative means like Puppet Edu, Clips, Green Screen, Keynote, iMovie and GarageBand, and participate in online learning games and quizzes through apps like Kahoot! and Quizizz. My students are deserving of more creative ways to learn and apply without any restriction or lack of resources!
