Exploring the Path of Technology!

Help me give my students a chance to excel with exploring technology learning.

My Students

Hello! My name is Mrs. Brown-Allen, I am a special d educator that teaches 7th grade ELA at an alternative school located in the East Baltimore Community. The population of students that I work with are at risk youth who are over-aged and under-credited in middle school.

The students that I teach have severe behavioral, intellectual and learning disabilities.

I want students to experience a welcoming, comfortable and flexible learning environment. As a special educator, my funds are limited which would inhibit my abilities to purchase more items and supplies. I want students to enter into a learning environment that meets his or her academic accommodations. My students are our future generation and they deserve to receive an education in an environment that will enhance, promote positively, inspiration and further education. I want to work collaboratively with my students by incorporating technology to meet the needs of all learners.

Unfortunately, many of my students come from lower income families which means they often have limited resources. Without these resources, it is a greater challenge for my students to find the success to achieve academically and socially. As their teacher, I want to build a suitable learning atmosphere.

My Project

These tablets will allow students to learn various educational programs to enhance their reading, writing, vocabulary building, technology, social and emotional skills.

The tablets will be implemented during instructional times including English, literacy centers and small group guided reading sessions.

The tablets will give students an equal opportunity to excel academically with peers.

The tablets will also help my students learn effectively through visual and using auditory aids to differentiate and modify reading lessons. Incorporating technology into a trauma- informed classroom will improve and increase students reading and writing in-capabilities.
