My district is in a rural area with a great deal of economic diversity among my students. As much as I try to be innovative with technology, there are always students who do not have access outside of the classroom.
My geometry students are curious 10th graders who need to practice communication skills.
Each student is an individual in terms of his or her interests and future goals, but the commonality is that they are all living in a world where it is necessary to be comfortable with technology.
In this day and age, some students are attempting to go paperless. They always have their phones on them, but don't always want to carry around large notebooks.
How great would it be if students could save their class notes to the Cloud and access them whenever they wanted?
This project would be a first step in making this a reality. I have access to a couple shared iPads, but a stylus really doesn't provide the control that is required to write multiple lines of mathematical computation legibly.
Providing Apple Pencils to my students would allow them to take notes on the shared iPads and then save their notes to the Cloud. This could be the best way to make math paperless and therefore easily accessible.
