I Can, I Will, I Learn!!!

As a special education teacher, my students need an ipad to enhance their daily learning skills. Learning through technology would give them this opportunity.

My Students

Can you imagine what it would be like to listen to a traditional lesson and not be able to grasp the meaning of it? Our students experience this everyday due to learning differences.

Our students attend an urban public school and receive free breakfast/lunch and textbooks.

Our students have special needs that require learning in many different ways. Many do not have the opportunity to experience learning through technology. An Ipad would offer learning through all modalities to this diverse group of students.

My Project

An Ipad can change the life of a child with special needs, as it is an effective device at enhancing learning. Apple realized that that the Ipad was perfectly suited to enhancing the lives of individuals with special needs and created a special education section of the app store. Because the Ipad uses all modalities, our students can use it to learn new information through their learning strength. The Ipad can be used to enhance every aspect of learning.

Having the use of an Ipad in the classroom will allow students the opportunity to learn through technology.

In an urban school with limited tools, students will experience something that will enhance their education and open their eyes to an exciting learning process with such a versatile tool. Technology will engage and motivate our students in learning individually or as a group. With this mobile learning tool, students can learn anywhere!
