Help Make Our SmartBoard Come Alive

My students need software to make their SmartBoard learning fun and engaging.

My Students

Have you ever felt confused by technology? That is how my students with special needs feel every day as they try to navigate a SmartBoard equipped with software well beyond their developmental skills.

My students with special needs are creative, fun and excited to learn.

They are ages 3 to 6 and attend school at a K-5 elementary school in a large, urban school district in Wisconsin. Most come from low income homes and 90% of the school recieves free or reduced hot lunch. My students have a variety of disabilities including significantly developmentally delayed, autism, orthopedic challenges, and speech and language disorders.

My Project

SmartBoards are a wonderful classroom resource and very engaging for students, but my students don't have the software to support their learning needs. Most free, online resources are geared towards older, typically developing students. When my students have access to these programs, they will be able to work towards their IEP goals as well as participate in activities similar if not the same as their peers. The programs selected work on varies math and literacy skills along with providing auditory clues which can be used to increase language skills. This will help them for years to come to understand how to use the SmartBoard in a constructive way.

SmartBoards are becoming a permanent fixture in all classrooms, so providing my students with special needs valuable time and experience will impact their educational careers.

It also provides them with learning opportunities in a variety of ways.
