My Students

My students are taking control of their learning by using an iPad! They love this technology and I want to make it readily available to students by having an iPad in our classroom.

The students are fun, inquisitive 6, 7 and 8 year old children that want to learn in hands-on engaging ways.

They attend a magnet school in a large urban district. The school is an International Baccalaureate World School. Our school encourages inquiry and questioning of how things work and why.

My Project

An iPad allows students to learn new skills in a fun, exciting way. There are many free educational applications available that target skills needed for first and second graders. Math activities abound with matching, patterning, tracing, addition, subtraction, and problem solving. Differentiated learning can occur with students being assigned to apps at their level. Photos and videos of activities can be taken with ease. Students can record themselves reading or explaining a project to share with parents. Then they upload these pictures and videos to their online portfolio.

The iPad will make it much easier for the children to share information with their parents and be proud of their accomplishments.

Students that need differentiation will also find their lives enriched with the extra opportunities for learning.
