My students need an iPad case for the iPad that was recently funded, and a scanner/printer, for putting fun materials on the Smartboard.
I go to both an elementary and middle school and have to meet the needs of many different types of students. Technology allows me to build the necessary visuals in an engaging format that I need to meet the diverse needs of my students.
My students span ages 3-14 in grades PK-8th and have a variety of communication delays: understanding and using vocabulary, formulating logical sentences, articulating sounds correctly while reading/spelling/talking, having appropriate conversations, etc.
My students will love using the landforms/maps learning center to learn language related to their social studies curriculum such as vocabulary, verbal reasoning, and directions. They will also love it when I scan some of my paper based materials using the scanner/printer, so that they can be used with the fun tools and touch screen of the Smartboard while following directions and making sentences. The iPad case will protect my newly funded iPad that I requested in a previous project, so that it will last for years to come while students use apps and other features to learn effective communication skills.
Most of the materials I am requesting support the technology that I already have such as the Ipad and Smartboard.
Technology is instrumental for teaching fundamental communication skills that are necessary to succeed in school and life.
