My Students

This is the first year students at my school have a 50 minute block, once a week, for STEAM education. We are a Title 1 school, so a lot of our families do not have the means to afford a lot of the technology available today. In addition, we are a district where over 50% of our students do not have English as their first language.

In the past, these students have greatly lacked technology as a part of their education.

This year, we have been trying to increase/enhance the technology integration within their curriculum as much as possible to better prepare them for our growing digital world.

My Project

After having just returned from the MACUL (Michigan Association for Computer Users in Learning) conference, I have gained a plethora of ways to support/enhance my students’ learning in the area of STEAM. However, a lot of the lessons require applications only available on iOS devices or require the flexibility that comes with moving around with an iPad.

I am hoping with at least 2 iPads, I will be able to showcase to the school board why the students would benefit from iPads in the STEAM classroom, thus, resulting in an approved budget to purchase more iPads (hopefully- fingers crossed!).

These iPads will be used for such student lessons as coding, stop-motion animation, green screen videos, and 3-D printing.
