Intergrating S.T.E.M. & Technology into Special Education After Hurricane Harvey

My students need iPads and headphones so they can learn through technology. Integrating technology is a great way to help save the environment and free up space.

My Students

Identified as an Improvement Required (IR) campus for the 2016-2017 school year by Texas Education Agency, our campus is a Title 1 school with a persistent problem in low student achievement, insufficient academic growth, and lack of motivation in African American and Hispanic student groups. While the campus is no longer IR for the 2017-2018 school year, 6.8% of the students receive special education services and a significant number of students read three or more levels below grade level.

In the resource classroom, students in 4th and 5th grade reading levels range from Pre-K to 2nd grade.

With three-fourths of the campus identified as low socio-economic status and 80% at-risk, many students primary caregivers are their grandparents, aunts, uncles, extended family members or foster care. Many of the students I teach and/or support in 4th and 5th grade qualify for special education services in one or more area including emotional disturbance, intellectual disability, specific learning disability, autism, and speech impairment with deficits in basic reading, fluency, reading comprehension, written expression, problem solving, math reasoning and math calculation.

My Project

My students need iPads and wireless headphones for purposeful technology integration to improve math, science, writing, reading comprehension and fluency skills.

S.T.E.M.

is the wave of the future. Special education students should have all the same learning materials and technology as any other student. Studies show that learning through technology increases the retention rate by over 50% and students that have the opportunity to use technology on a regular basis are more likely to go to college and earn higher paying jobs.

iPads allow students to have an interactive experience while doing exploratory studies on projects. This also helps students with special needs in areas of communication, comprehension, and engagement.

It is my mandate to offer my students a top notch education and I am trying to do just that.

Thank you in advance for your support.
