Daily Data Drives Us

My students need a MacBook Air, the warranty, and a hard case to protect it for data collection.

My Students

My classroom is a K-2 autism classroom in the city of Providence. We are a Title I school; every child gets free breakfast and lunch, and I provide snack for them every day, as well.

The children in my classroom have different academic needs which means we need lots of materials.

I have children in the class that are nonverbal and require the pecs system to communicate; some children are working on academic skills, while others are just learning classroom routines and expectations.

My Project

Having a functional laptop in our classroom will help to track data and plan for direct instruction.

As a special educator, I spend a lot of time writing IEPs and having a laptop that is missing the letter C makes this a little hard.

As a first year teacher, I was handed a laptop and told that since the warranty was expired the school department wouldn’t fix the laptop. This was the only laptop they had left for me to use.

After attending a conference on personalization in the classroom, I am determined to keep better data records in order to conference with my students and to plan lessons that meet their individual needs.

Once I have a functional laptop, I will be able to look into assessment tools that I can keep on the laptop and streamline my data. Also having the data in one place will allow me to share this information easily with the TA’s in my classroom as well as the other professionals on the Autism Team.

I will also be using the laptop to create lessons, upload students work samples, write IEPs, progress reports, intervention reports, and communicate with families
