My Students

My students attend a school in a community where the majority live below the poverty line and lack access to opportunities and materials other than what the school can provide. Some come to class with deep background knowledge to draw upon while most have not been given the experiences to relate with what the curriculum and textbook is teaching. In addition, limited resources at our school like technology are prioritized for English language arts and math.

My students are curious and creative, and thrive when they are challenged critically and are motivated when they can relate to the content and create with technology.

I want to change their attitudes about history and show them how history explains the world they live in and gives them the knowledge to improve it.

My Project

I have attended professional development that has introduced me to online instructional tools, resources, webquests, archives, Google Docs, virtual reality, and so forth that enhance student learning, but my students do not have access to technology in my classroom!

To make learning U.S.

history more meaningful and fun and move away from traditional styles of teaching, I need to provide them with tools that will support them in the 21st century.

We have a computer lab at the school that is shared by all the teachers in the school and is hardly available to my kids. They need more flexible and consistent access to technology as I shift, update, and incorporate technology into my instruction to meet my students' needs. These iPads will get us the jump start we need with technology-based projects, activities, and assessments in stations.
