My Students

My students attend a rural Tennesseean school nestled in the foothills of the Cherokee National Forest and the Smoky Mountains. It is a Title I school, and over 70% of students come from a socioeconomically low environment and qualify for free and reduced lunch. My classroom consists of special education students at this school in kindergarten, first, and second grade levels.

Many of our students do not receive any environmental enrichment outside of our school doors.

I want to offer every student that walks into my classroom the best educational opportunities that I can! I believe that if our classroom had some iPads, they could be implemented into our instruction time and would increase student motivation, as well as accelerate their learning.

My Project

Having a set of classroom Apple iPads will allow for students to learn at their own pace through different educational apps. Many are adaptive, meaning that questions and problems will get easier or more difficult, depending on student performance. Programs can adjust to meet students at their precise learning levels. In addition, the multitude of apps and software available means that students in the same classroom might be using different systems to learn similar material, depending on their interests and learning.

Educational technology makes it possible for students with special needs to thrive in academic settings.

From adaptive word processor apps to programs that speak for children who struggle with language, technology allows students to communicate and be involved with their teachers and classmates. These iPads would greatly benefit my sweet students!
