TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need 2 iPads to be creative and interactive with their music experiences.
My students are caring, creative, energetic, hard working, and full of character.They love to be active and engaged in many ways throughout everything they do. As the music teacher, I get all of the kids in the building active and learning in a variety of ways from movement activities to singing and playing their self-created compositions on classroom instruments.
The students in my classes are extremely diverse in a multitude of ways.
Aside from their unique individual strengths, areas for growth, and personalities; our student body represents families from twelve different countries and a wide range of learning needs and capabilities. About 75% of our families experience poverty on a daily basis.
Our school is a true neighborhood school in an urban district. Most of our students live close and walk to school. We have thriving after school programs; some are led by teachers and others are by local high schoolers and other community members.
Many of our families know each other and care about each other's kids and their successes.
By having access to these iPads during their time in the music room, students will be able to use apps and programs geared towards music. We will use vocal and instrumental exploration apps, as well as storytelling apps.
The students will also be able to write their own compositions using these two iPads.
Additionally, having these iPads in the music room will allow our students with disabilities to access music apps that they can use and relate to when they can benefit from adapted lessons. Our higher learners will be able to use apps that give them additional music lessons and resources beyond the lessons I teach during full group instruction.
We will also be able to use the video capabilities on the iPads to record in-class performances and instantly watch them to self-assess our work and either write or discuss our evaluations.
My students love using technology, and having these iPads will continue to keep them excited and engaged in music class.
