My Students

I teach math at a Title-I high school to a very lively, curious, and all-around awesome group of kids. My classes are filled with students who are diverse not only in their socioeconomic statuses and cultural backgrounds but also in their learning styles. Many of my students are visual and kinesthetic learners who prefer a more hands-on approach to learning math. Some of them are English Language Learners who need extra support to succeed in the classroom. Despite the obstacles my students face, they take challenges head-on and give me inspiration every day.

My students are all about how they can make math relevant to their lives and will jump at any opportunity they have to incorporate technology into the lesson.

Whether it be through a YouTube video, a game of Kahoot, or any activity where they can use their phones, they always have a glimmer in their eyes when they engage with math in non-traditional contexts.

My Project

By having a class iPad, my students will gain access to completely new ways of engaging with math. Presentation tools such as Doceri could effectively grant us a mobile whiteboard for both myself and the students to use from any location in the classroom. Anything a student or I has displayed on the projector can further be uploaded online for students to access later or even directly transmitted to their phones by means such as AirDrop. In addition, there is a slew of apps available to provide individualized practice for students who need a different approach to math.

An iPad can personalize learning and bring fun to a challenging subject like math.

I fully expect my students will be kept engaged and excited about learning when they can start using a wide variety of learning materials and apps available for the iPad.
