My Students

Technology is nothing. What's important is that you have a faith in people, that they're basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they'll do wonderful things with them-Steve Jobs If I have the tools to provide opportunities for my students, they will have more opportunity for success.

My 6th grade students attend a Title 1 public elementary school in Arizona.

I have 30 students, 7 of which qualify for special education services due to a variety of learning disabilities, emotional disabilities, and autism. I have two instructional aides who come in to work with all 7 students. One aide assists for reading and language, and the other assists for math. My students face the challenge of not receiving more "one on one" instructional guidance due to an increase in class size. I feel each one of my students is gifted in their own unique way. They offer great contributions to my classroom through insightful discussion. I try to provide hands-on opportunities in my lessons to engage students, but I want them getting active in their own education outside of the classroom. They all have unlimited potential and I feel that technology can assist my students in reaching their true potential as successful students and eventually adults.

My Project

I am requesting my classroom receives an iPad as well as Apple TV access. Having an iPad in my classroom would provide my students with a wide variety of experiences that would allow them to utilize this technology first hand in my classroom and at home. I am looking to use the iPad in classroom guided discussion, such as Language, Reading, and Math. Through the Educreation App, I will be able to record my voice and classroom notes and instruction that I can later post on Edmodo for a tutorial of steps to solving problems. My students will also be allowed to create instructional videos on how they solved a problem and arrived at the answer. This will help students with different levels of understanding help tutor each other through the press of a button. These instructional videos will also allow students who are absent to view the instructional content that they would have otherwise missed. The iPad and Apple TV will help me create more opportunities for my students outside of class.

Your donations will help provide a resource for my instruction that will improve student engagement and understanding that I otherwise don't have access to.

Not only will you donations improve instruction in my classroom, but it will also provide them a useful and resourceful tool to use at home. Your donations will help create an opportunity for my students to succeed in and out of the classroom by providing a resource that allows us to share knowledge and understanding through technology.
