My students need an iPad to access the Common Core Curriculum through differentiated instruction by using 21st century skills.
Have you ever been sitting in Ferris Bueller's classroom with the time slowly passing? All you can do is sit and wonder if the teacher will ever speak your language. Students today are digital natives who communicate through technology. Help us to speak the same language.
My classroom: 90% free and reduced price lunch 30% LEP limited English proficient 88% Minority We are a Spanish Dual Language Academy embracing native traditions and languages from all cultures.
Our school is in the first year of Leader In Me implementation. These two programs embody the characteristics we strive to attain in our classroom. While being accepting of others, my students synergize to develop themselves as leaders and embrace the characteristics of lifelong learners.
Through the use of an iPad my students' engagement level will increase and they will be excited about learning. This year, through the use of my personal iPad, it was evident students were more engaged with the American Revolution while using a free app. Math stamina and understanding was increased through using QR codes to problem solve. Using my iPad, a collaborative team of students was able to create a project to support our Force and Motion science unit. This varied instruction is what I wish to heighten in order to foster student choice and independence before my students graduate to middle school.

I need an iPad to ignite this vision in my classroom.Read More
