I Got That Text

Help me give my students an Apple iPad to learn by having available technology to access the curriculum.

My Students

I am a special needs teacher. I work in a Title I school where 75% of the students live in poverty. Our students come from a variety of places including the homeless shelter and an Indian Reservation.

My students have a variety of special needs.

They struggle to read and do everyday tasks. It is hard for my students to stay on task and focused. My students learn with activities and games, but in order for me to help make learning fun, they need to have access to technology and the different apps available for reading, writing and math. I need technology in my resource classroom.

My Project

Some of my students have difficulties writing with a pencil. They have great ideas and want to participate in class, but by the time they get the first word down, they may have forgotten what they were doing, may not have the finger strength, or have lost interest. In subjects like science, where they have to write about what they have just observed, this often becomes a time of frustration for my students. Often I see a student that goes from enjoying himself to instant anger because he can't get his thoughts down on paper fast enough.

iPads have the capability in an open document to write out what the student speaks into it.

The student is still responsible for capitalization, punctuation and correct grammar. This would not be for every student. But the few students need such accommodations to help them be successful in their learning.

The iPad will also be used to help the student get his/ her thoughts down. Then they could practice writing and building that finger strength and letter formation by copying the writing they had previously dictated.
