My RSP (resource) students are a wonderful group of students that need extra support in math and/or language arts because they are below grade level and may have other special needs in addition to academics.
When you see a student that has been struggling get a smile on their face because they have made progress or accomplished something they doubted they could do, is a reason for celebration.
Each one of these students learn in different ways and the key to their learning success is finding that way. The way that has that lightbulb switch on and that "a ha" moment happen is magical.
Students need to be able to access the digital world so that that they can participate with peers and keep up in their general education classrooms. Access to digital sources can take them places they may never get to see any other way.
In today's world, technology knowledge and familiarity is essential.
The skills they learn in elementary school will carry them into the work world.
We use tech daily. Right now my students are using tech on a rotating schedule. Some of the things we use tech for are reading fluency, math, coding, history, science and writing. For some of these students handwriting is not a possibility access to speech to text through digital access is how they are completing their work.
