Facilitating Learning In Resource Class!

My students need iPads for research and learning.

  • $2,216 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students want to achieve and show what they know. They are excited when they understand a lesson, and often go back to their regular classrooms to share what they know!

I teach children with learning disabilities.

They are engaged in the school's goal to become a STEM school. They conduct their research in the resource classroom, and then return to their classes better prepared to participate in learning with their peers. The upper elementary students focus their attention on research, writing, and acquisition of math foundation skills. The lower elementary children solidify their understanding of basic math skills, learning to read and write. The unifying theme for the school is STEM, and at each grade level, students conduct research about a given theme. The photograph included with this application shows dioramas created by children after doing research on scientific themes.

My Project

The iPads will serve two purposes: at the upper elementary level, the students will use these to conduct research. They are better able to take notes when looking at material beside their paper, than when copying from the board or a computer monitor. They will also use them to spell check their writings, and to diversify their writing through the use of online thesaurus. For the lower elementary students, they will work on solidifying skills to support learning math facts, counting, and number skills. Very young students who have difficulty using a computer mouse because of the deficits in visual motor skills, will have the opportunity to make direct access responses. They will also use these to practice writing and other visual motor developmental skills.

This donation will help each student become a more independent learner through the use of technology.

The skills learned with this technology can compensate for identified deficits. As adults, they can refer back to the research and self checking skills they learned. This can be a critical life skill as they continue on to jobs and post secondary education.
