My Students

I have a fabulous group of first graders who are eager and excited to learn every day. Our school is a Title I school, with 75% of our students receiving free/reduced lunch. We are surrounded by a vibrant neighborhood community that is very supportive of our educational efforts and helps our students in many ways.

Many of my students do not have access to technology at home, so using computers and iPads in the classroom truly enriches their learning experience.

Integrating technology into our classroom is not only motivating for my students, it also provides an opportunity for them to develop the skills needed to be successful throughout their lives.

My Project

Having additional iPads in our classroom will enable my kiddos to document their fabulous work and explain their thinking and learning. We use an app called Seesaw to upload pictures, videos and drawings of students' completed work to be reviewed first by me, then shared with the class and the students' families. By involving parents and allowing them to view their child's uploaded work, they feel much more connected to what is happening in the classroom.

I am trying to achieve the goal of being a 1:1 classroom with the ability to put an iPad in each of my students hands!

This would enable instant feedback for students as well as provide a portfolio of ongoing documentation of the skills they have mastered and evidence of their academic growth. Hearing a student explain what math strategy they used and why, or reading an original story they have written allows me to more deeply understand their thinking and learning. The iPads I am requesting will be used by students to upload their work, explain their thinking, and in small groups and will get us one step closer to our ultimate goal of having an iPad for everyone!
