Hybrid Classes Is the New Normal

Help me give my students a headset to take home for their remote learning lessons, and allow me to create an effective at-home and in-person learning experience with an iPad.

My Students

I am a Bilingual Special Education teacher in South Bronx. My students are teenagers from 14 to 17 years old. They come from low-income households and access to technology in their households is limited. I teach in a self-contained setting. It means that my students have different learning abilities that need to be addressed and differentiated in their every day learning segments. They strive daily to improve their personal skills and strengths, and at the same learn how to overcome their weaknesses and use them in a positive way.

Some of the students from our school are also Emergent Bilingual students that strive to achieve academic success at the same time as improving their English.

These students, sometimes struggle in their academic lessons because of their lack of academic English knowledge, however, they keep learning different ways to overcome that struggle by improving their English but also using their native language as a strength in their learning process.

My Project

New York City schools are going back in session in a hybrid learning experience, which means that some students will be attending schools in-person while others will stay home. My job is to be able to approach both students at the same time by teaching the same lesson and expecting the same learning results.

Technology will be my super-power; using platforms like EdPuzzle, NearPod, Pear deck, etc will give me the possibility to approach both learning environments by creating more interactive lessons.

To effectively teach students that learn differently I need to be able to use their strengths and help improve their weaknesses. A great way for me to help them is by using technology in the classroom. Using technology to include videos, help with reading, voice recording, drawing, and discussion is not just helpful to my students but also engaging and promotes an active learning. Using an iPad while delivering the lesson and keeping social distancing, would help me attend the remote learners and operate the diverse platforms at the same time as my in-person students.

Covid-19 has taken a huge toll in our communities, however, we need to keep working hard for our students and help them achieve their goals, and receive the best learning experience and with your help, I can accomplish my goals as an educator during this already hard year.
