Incorporating Technology Into 1 on 1 Pull-Outs

Help me give my students this iPad bundle. This would be a huge help when working with my special education students during 1 on 1 pullouts as well as being able to incorporate technology with the content.

My Students

I work at a Title I school where majority of our students receive free or reduced price lunch because they come from low income families. The students we educate in my classes are a mixture of students who have learning disabilities as well as students who don't. My students are hard workers who strive to be the best. Being that majority of them have struggled through school it makes it tough to keep them motivated to stay determined. Our students need all the 1 on 1 that they can get. This helps with focus and concentration and it allows us as teachers to slow the curriculum down in order for our students to grasp it.

My Project

This iPad bundle would be a huge tool to use that would greatly benefit my kids with learning disabilities that require 1 on 1 pull outs. Having the ability to incorporate technology into my pull outs would not only make learning fun, but also make the possibilities endless on what a pull-out can consist of. When giving a kid who struggles with learning the opportunity to use a piece of technology besides their phone to learn and grasp concepts, only helps build confidence and knowledge. Technology is the gateway to our students minds, and being that we are in a time where our kids our more technological advanced then we are, technology intrigues them. Any chance that they are able to work with computers or cell phones the production we get from them increases.
