My Students

My class is a Functional Skills Special Day Class. We are learning independent living skills, community-based instructional as well as state standard curriculum. We are a fun loving group that is tight-knit, and encourage and support each other's everyday successes.

Our state curriculum is internet based and requires the ability to use computers and other technology to access it.

My students work hard everyday to increase their ability access the community, provide self care and to learn. They love to learn!

My Project

My student's primary curriculum is internet based. Without access to multiple chromebooks, at this time we are not able to all access our curriculum at the same time.

By enabling my students to work side by side together it will allow for proper groupings during the day and give opportunities to have more experience using every day technology.

As of today we are only able to borrow chromebooks from other classrooms and only during specific time periods during the day. The chromebooks would be used multiple periods throughout the day and will allow for access to language arts, math, science, and history.
