My Students

I am a first year Special Educator in an 8:1:1 classroom with students ranging ages 6-8. My students have a variety of intellectual, physical and sensory disabilities. Four of my students are non verbal and lack fine motor skills.

I have a classroom full of eager learners with great potential.

My students are learning how to count, read and write! They love to learn and become full of excitement and pride when they accomplish a new task.

My students love technology, specially those who struggle with fine motor skills and and speech, unfortunately our one desktop is no longer working.

My Project

My students require the use of technology in order to provide them with the abilities to read texts, or have texts read aloud to them. My Classroom is very diverse with students who have different needs and are at different levels, the IPads will provide them the ability to access grade-level texts. IPads will be extremely beneficial for students in the classroom who struggle with fine motor skills and struggle to hold a pencil. IPads serve as an assistive device to their education.

Additionally, IPads will give my students the option to choose from a variety of books and apps, that will allow them to work independently at their own grade level which will allow them to become more involved.
