I have an inner-city class that rotates between two teachers. The students often come to us from poverty, homelessness, and other countries as refugees. They have very little in terms of supplies and even less experience with technology.
I want to prepare my students for the 21st century, and it is heavily reliant on technology.
My students want to succeed, but they need help. They need someone to invest in their future and give them the tools they need to compete with students in their generation who have these tools readily available.
Our population of ELL students benefits greatly from being able to listen to test items. Out classroom has 1 set of headphones that is shared by our 22 students. They are usually worn by the student that is the student that is the lowest level of EPL.
We have so many children that require test items read to them, that it is impossible to test them all in one day.
It would increase their test scores so much if they could have the test questions read to them like their math and English tests are meant to do.
