Help me give my students access to educational applications and promote digital literacy with a classroom iPad. Students will be able to document their own work by taking photos and uploading them to their individual student portfolios.
Our school serves students from transitional kindergarten through 5th grade. The student body includes about 450 students altogether. The student body is widely diverse and 55% of students come from low-income families. Our school is a Title l school.
My fifth grade class includes 26 fabulous learners.
Our classroom setting includes students with different interests, experiences, learning styles and needs.
We strive to create a comfortable school environment in which students look forward to coming each day to develop their academic and social skills.
As a fifth grade teacher with 27 students, it is important to differentiate instruction and to keep track of small group and one-on-one conferences. Keeping track of data and conference notes leads to piles of paperwork and sprawled out notebooks. A classroom iPad will allow students to take the lead in documenting their own work and assessing their growth using digital portfolios.
An iPad is a simple solution to many of the organizational challenges that arise while working with so many students with various strengths and areas of need.
A classroom iPad will students to immediately upload photos of their own work to online portfolios. An iPad will make it easier students to share their work with families. In addition, a classroom iPad will allow me to differentiate instruction and identify applications that target students' individualized learning needs.
