Mrs. Aikman from Danbury CT is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students direct instruction from their teacher! The iPad will help me to be able to teach my students in real time or to make videos of myself teaching.
My students come from diverse backgrounds. Our school often has the greatest ethnic diversity of all the schools in the state. We also have the largest high school in the state. The majority of our students receive free or reduced lunch. The school, especially the math department, is very technology poor. These students do not have readily accessible technology that allows them to truly engage in the content as they could.
Like all kids, they enjoy learning most when they are actively engaged.
It is not uncommon to have a student absent due to either a suspension or from the lack of interest in being in school. This is evidence that they are disengaged. These students need a better reason to be in the classroom than grades alone. They need to become a part of the system. They need to feel needed.
With this current situation of distance education making the feel needed or actively engaging them is more difficult. The personal interaction that is present in the school environment is not there. We teachers need help making those personal connections using technology. I would like for my students to still feel connected to school and the relationships we cultivated.
I would like to set up the iPad to create an online classroom to help me connect with my students on a personal level. I would like to create interactive lessons that allow the students to still have me as a teacher instead of random videos from Youtube or Khan Academy.
I want the iPad to make my distance learning teaching better.
To create a flipped classroom that allows me to guide the students through the learning process. Our class can interact with the material together.
Thanks for making this possible!
