My Students

Recovering from a surgery, or home due to an illness, how can you stay in touch with the classroom? Technological devices such as an Internet-enabled tablet can assist greatly.

I tutor home/hospital students.

After a surgery, students are recovering at home. I provide them with the instruction from their classrooms that is necessary to maintaining their curriculum while recovering. They are everyday, normal high school students that have been in an accident, or need surgery and are missing instruction. They fall far behind when they return to school, however, we can eliminate that by providing instruction while recovering. They love the fact that they can stay engaged, or connected to the classroom!

My Project

This resource, the tablet, will allow the home bound student to view labs, power points, lectures and video segments provided by their teachers. It will also allow the students to contact their peers remotely and stay connected to the classroom from their recovery area. It will allow them to submit work via email or communicate their intention to return it to the class in person. This would prevent the student from falling behind in classroom instruction and the assigned work.

Watching a student who is physically challenged be given access to dramatic quality of life improvements is extremely rewarding.

Easy access to the same materials as students who are physically able to attend class is vital for the success of their education. No student should be left behind because of an accident and this will allow them an equal, more stable footing on the rungs of the ladder that is their education.
