My Students

Do you know what it is like to feel frustrated because you don't understand how to use the new and upcoming technology? As my students grow to be exceptional students I want to give them the opportunity to learn how to use new and upcoming technological skills.

I am teaching at an international school in a low income area in Washington State.

We are a Title I school, trying really hard to provide our students with the resources to succeed. The school has a very diverse group of students with over 20 different languages spoken at home. Most of the students are receiving free or reduced lunches, and some are homeless and being at school is the only stable place in their lives. Although many of the students come from a rough home life they are hardworking, intelligent and incredible kids. They make me smile everyday I walk through the school doors.

My Project

We are approaching an era where high school students are using iPads to read their textbooks or do assignments on them. Well high school should not be the first time for students to use them or it will slow down their learning and students may get frustrated. Students need to be introduced to this technology at a younger age in order to succeeded to their fullest potential when they are older. Having six iPads in the classroom will allow students to pick a book from a wide variety right in their hands. They can also take notes about what they are reading without having to carry around a book, notepad and pencil. These iPads will also allow students to play games that are targeted to national standards in addition to practicing their typing - at my school we don'™t have computers in the classroom for them to practice on. They will also allow students to collect data and analyze it through specific applications. Last but not least, new iPads will allow students to take a break every once in a while and have fun.

The materials I am asking for are important to add to the classroom because they will give students more opportunities to become engaged in their learning.

The iPads can be used for multiple subjects and it is a great way to scaffold student learning. I know the students would love the opportunity to use iPads because many of them may never get a chance otherwise.
