My Students

I work with a wide range of student from a kindergartener with autism to a fifth grader with a hearing impairment. Many of my students fit into the categories of OHI and SLD, but I have one with Down Syndrome and another one who has Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy. My students have access to laptops, but many of them struggle to and/or understand how properly use them. iPads are a much easier piece of technology to navigate and many of my students are already familiar with how they work!

My Project

If my project is fully funded it will open many new ways of learning for my students.

Each of my students are so different in the ways they learn.

Having these iPad with protective cases will allow for my students to blossom and grow by finding what style of learning works best for them.

Many of my students require social and emotional supports. There are many apps for the iPad that will help support the social/emotional needs of my students. Some of these apps include, Positive Penguins, Smiling Mind, Emotionally, and so many more! Sometimes children do not like expressing themselves or have trouble doing it in person. These apps will allow my students to have an alternative way to do so.

These iPads are a great resource for the students in the classroom. There are so many great apps out there for education that make learning fun and differentiate skills for the students. With the rapid growth of technology in today's world, the students will be able to connect to these devices.
