Integrating Technology without a Classroom: Challenging But So Worth It!

My Students

I have 60 Preschool English learners from diverse backgrounds. The majority speak Spanish, but I also have speakers of Chinese and Arabic. They all come from low-income families; most parents have to work two or three jobs, and as a result, they do not get to spend much time with their children.

Due to their academically and socially poor home environments, their ages, and the fact that for most of them it is their first time in school, they come to us speaking very little to no English and are at a stage called the silent stage.

At this stage, regardless of the first language they speak, children are acquiring language mostly from their environment, so their classrooms need to be visually and aurally rich.

Having students participate in singing songs, interactive read-alouds - in which they look closely at pictures, words, and start developing pre-reading skills- and playing games, are considered best teaching practices to keep them engaged, promote long-term learning, and a high level of language.

My Project

We need an external power bank a bag and iPad cases that will help me carry all technology devices and accessories safely from school to school. As I get ready to start using The iPads I got as part of my last project funded by Donors Choose donors, I needed to figure out what would be the safest way to transport them. I am an itinerant teacher so I go to 1-2 schools every day. I also need to plan how to use the iPad so I can continue to provide uninterrupted instruction to my preschoolers. I teach in a variety of classroom areas, and not all of them have outlets, so it is crucial that I plan how I will provide instruction for six a day uninterrupted.

First, the cases and bag will allow me to carry the iPads and accessories from school to school safely, as well as protect the Ipads when my 4 and 5-year-olds use them; the external power bank will charge the iPads even when no outlet is available, which is necessary to accomplish my lessons and keep students engaged.

The lessons that I will provide with the Ipads are interactive, as they are used with wooden letters and numbers, and applications that allow the iPad to interact with the student by saying the letters/numbers they place on the screen, and counting and reading words for them (such as their names).
