Education Into the 21st Century

Help me give my students a android tablet to conduct VR (virtual reality) science experiments and learn math concepts.

My Students

I have been a special education teacher in a diverse and urban school community for five years. I just started my third year as a resource specialist teacher. What makes my classroom special is that my students are always provided with equal learning opportunities and I never allow my students to give up on themselves. I always push my students to do well and encourage them to keep trying their best no matter how many tries it takes them. My students are absolutely dedicated and passionate about learning in the special education setting.

I want to teach my students to change their mindsets from "I can't" to "I can".

Throughout the few years that I've been teaching, I have met all sorts of students who have all helped me grow to become the teacher that I am today and I thank them every day for that. I have learned that different students learn in different ways and my students learn to adapt their learning styles so that they can continue learning new things. Then they can have the most valuable and versatile learning experience in my classroom.

My Project

My students are very receptive and learn more effectively with technology. I want to increase their passion to learn by teaching them how to use technology to conduct science experiments using VR (Virtual Reality) and learn new mathematics methods that goes beyond the typical reading the textbook method. This requested Android tablet will give my students hands-on technology experiences so that they learn beyond just reading just the textbook. By encouraging our students to learn using technological skills, I'll keep my students engaged. They'll be motivated to see their most creative ideas come to life through technology and digital communication.

Visual Learning through technology gives students hands-on access to information outside the classroom and lets them visually see and learn different methods of learning.

Our classroom needs an Android tablet because we are unable to give every student their own to use. 5 students have to share 1 tablet and that limits their time with the Android tablet per student and cuts into their learning. This hinders their ability to access the curriculum also. Students will be using InMind VR and 3D Virtual Lab App to conduct VR science experiments without the mess and make as many experiments as they want while learning STEM skills.

My students struggle with math concepts and so they can use the app Todo Math on the Android tablet where instructions can be visually shown and repeated as many times as they need to help them learn the new math concepts they learn. That's why I hope to have another Android tablet in the classroom so that more students have access to technology so that they all have equal time and opportunity to learn.
