My students need an ipad, document camera, Windows 8.1 and 2 computers to improve literacy and math skills.
My Kindergarten students love to learn, and need to have access to engaging, novel types of activities to maximize their learning potential.
My students face many challenges, and three of my twenty students have special needs-two are autistic and one student has Downs syndrome.
I teach in a Title One school in Louisiana, and many of our students lack technology opportunities in their homes. Several of my students speak English as a Second Language.
The computers and iPad will provide independent, engaging learning activities which are self-paced and a fun way to learn and practice skills such as phonemic awareness, reading, math, map, animal facts, geography, reasoning, and science skills. The document camera will allow me to project a learning activity onto a larger surface area in order to be more visible and interactive with the students.
One benefit of funding this project includes providing independent, engaging learning activities which are self-paced and a fun way to learn and practice skills.
Some of my students have speech, language, motor, and cognitive deficits, and the iPad has adaptive and motion-based features, plus a touch screen to assist with these deficits. Research has shown that handheld technology and computer games can enhance learning outcomes. The new technology will provide more learning opportunities.
