Computers-Student Engagement and Differentiated Instruction

My students need 3 Chromebooks.

My Students

Every day, my students get off the bus excited to be at school. They love talking with their friends, reading new and exciting books, and working out tricky math problems as a team. We are a small class, but we are a community of learners and caring individuals.

My students are creative and energetic 3rd, 4th, and 5th-graders.

Each of them has a learning disability along with a history of emotional and behavioral struggles in school. Our class is specifically focused on providing a therapeutic environment, while still improving academic outcomes. Every student is working on a different set of goals, both academic and behavioral. At the same time, we are using grade level texts and curriculum to keep class meaningful and engaging.

My Project

Because our class covers three grade levels, it is difficult to differentiate instruction, at a high rigor level, on a daily basis. We currently do not have any computers in our class, and only access the computer lab once per week. Having access to computers within the class would allow students to read and listen to texts on their grade level, work on specific math skills through engaging games, and provide a behavioral incentive throughout the day. Computers would also allow me to more easily run learning stations, and pull groups for differentiated instruction.

This project will help my students reach their individual academic and behavioral goals, ultimately improving our class culture.

Students will feel even more positive about coming to school every day.
