My Students

My students are hardworking youth who, like everyone else, are dealing with the challenges and stresses brought on by the pandemic. My students show greater enthusiasm when learning is interactive, interesting and includes technology. I teach my students about the importance and beauties of languages, cultures, and communities as they learn Spanish. My school is located in a large urban city. Of the 1,500 students 70% are low-income, 18% of the students have disabilities, and 12% are English Language Learners.

My Project

Many of my students are ready to engage in learning Spanish despite the obstacles they are dealing with throughout the pandemic. Through this project I am requesting an iPad to use during eLearning so that I can have multi-displays and activities for students to engage in. While learning at home, students will be able to participate in quality lessons as I will have the proper technology to teach from home. Currently, my computer is extremely old and slow as I have had to use it nonstop since March; the iPad will allow additional access. Once we return to school, students will have access to this technology as well.

I know I will not be able to create a full in-class experience, but trying to teach with only my run down computer is not a prime set up for high-quality, uninterrupted lessons as we often have to pause due to lagging, low-quality video presentations, or dropping of sound.

New technology will allow me to produce high-quality recordings, engage with students without pauses, and navigate seamlessly as I model strategies. The iPad will allow me to collaborate with students and share information as we learn about culture and language.
