My students need iPads to access educational programs online for math & science. We have limited computers at our school which reduces the time our students can dedicate to the powerful & enriching academic programs.
I teach in a urban district where students are at school from 7:30-3:30. They receive free breakfast, lunch, and snacks. Our teachers serve a dual role as educators and parents. Our school kids need us to help them learn manners, respect, and how to be an upstanding member of their community. We teach beyond academics.
We need technology to help our students explore, create, and learn.
We have limited access to computers and ipads to allow for effective technology integration.
My students need iPads to access educational programs online. We have limited technology resources at school (and home) to allow for STEM implementation. We don't want our students to feel disadvantaged at a school-they should have the same supplies and opportunities as kids in other schools! Our students love using iPads to "play" math and science educational games. They also enjoy the true learning programs such as Math and Keyboarding without Tears. Some students have even requested to learn how to code and design their own science and math quests. We need technology to make these dreams come true!
