My Students

I want my students to be ahead of where they need to be in order progress to the next grade level, both intellectually and behaviorally. In order to do this, I need to keep the students attention while presenting my lessons. I've found the Apple ecosystem provides unique teaching tools that help.

Our school is a priority school.

My students are excellent first graders who could benefit greatly from the rich and targeted learning applications available through the Apple ecosystem. I would like to be able introduce these children to the multitude of learning resources available on the iPad.

My Project

There are many applications aimed explicitly at younger children. They are bright, colorful, engrossing for the children, and serve as great ways to reinforce lessons being taught and ideas being explored in the classroom. My students will be able to use the iPad with a protective case for individual one-on-one teaching, as well as being able to project the iPad screen for the whole class to see and follow a lesson.

In the ever changing climate of child education, it is sometimes a struggle to engage the students in traditional ways.

The computer and tablets are this generations pen and paper. The iPad will afford my classroom a chance to experience the technology and benefits of a digitally enhanced curriculum that will further the lessons being taught in class.
