Curious Learners Get An iOpener

My students need technology resources such as 2 ipads, cases and headphones to help implement online interventions in the classroom that will help them be successful readers.

My Students

The world of technology is upon us. As I educate the future leaders of America, it is vital that they have hands on usage of technology to aide and support their learning endeavors. This will make them technology capable as well as successful readers.

This group consists of forty six third graders who are inquisitive and eager to use the online support and programs available to aide them to become better readers.

They attend a K-8 Center in South Florida who is predominantly made up of working class and poverty level citizens.

My Project

The resources requested would make a drastic change in the way technology is implemented in the classroom. It will enable students to have more use of technology as well as access to online support that can help them become stronger readers. With the resources requested, I will be able to start an iPad rotation where students would work on an intervention online program that works specifically on that child's reading deficiency. Students would master skills needed to be successful readers.

This project is so important because our children are our future!

Third grade has the added challenge of being a retention year if a child's reading capacity is not at part. With these resources I would be able to close the reading deficiency gaps and potentially promote all my students as successful readers who are equipped and knowledgeable on the use of computers.
