My Students

I’m a 7th grade math teacher, at a Title I middle school, in South Florida. 80% of our students are learning English as a second language, most being new Americans from Latin American immigrant families. Consequently, our children’s English proficiency varies a lot. Many of our children have missed year(s) of mathematics instruction in their home countries, compounding their linguistic difficulties. In addition, our school is a special education center for our city. Our kids do not, understandably, respond well to lecturing. They do respond well to visual presentations, small group instruction, and hands-on activities. I use technology a lot in the classroom, and it greatly helps my students get a better understanding of the material!

My Project

Our classroom is heavily technology-focused. We use multiple computer-based platforms such as Gizmos, Khan Academy, Edmodo, and Reflex Math to make learning math as fun and engaging as possible for students.

Traditional instructional methods like lecturing and worksheets still have their place in the classroom, to be sure.

However, by students access to our class materials on interactive online platforms, I have seen their interest, participation, and achievement improve drastically!

Using individualized instructional platforms accessed through computers also helps provide both digital manipulatives and bilingual instructional resources tailored to help students address their weak skills. Furthermore, Khan Academy and Gizmos give my kids access to multiple grade levels of videos, materials, and exercises to help them remediate comprehension weaknesses from past grade levels as well.

Unfortunately, the only thing holding my students back is insufficient access to laptops; that’s where this project comes in! These durable and effective Chromebooks will help all of my students have access to these wonderful math resources!
