My Students

My classroom is very vibrant and very active. Fast-paced. The students need a 21st century technology to keep up with their speed.

My students are engaged, vibrant and eager to explore information outside of their worlds.

They are excellent with technology and because of their proficiency with that technology, they also respond well to immediate feedback. They are a part of a supportive, diverse and very inclusive community.

My Project

With the addition of this iPad, my students will have the immediate feedback they are so comfortable receiving available at any time. The iPad will be used for recording direct instruction which will be uploaded online so students can access the material whenever works best for them as learners. They can do what works best for them.

Students struggle with motivation.

Students dislike waiting for information. The IPad will take the wait away from accessing information, keeping more students engaged and involved. When students are provided with any available resource for their success, they aren't faced with as many obstacles in achieving their best work.
