I teach fourth grade to a beautiful bilingual group. My students are from New Jersey from low-income households. Most of my students are newcomers to this country who are full of dreams.
These children are faced with challenges every day.
Their parents are unable to purchase the necessary items for them to have in school every day.
As I prepare for my students this fall to have a successful virtual learning experience with my students, I am requesting an iPad and an Apple pencil. Ever since school closed in March, my students and I worked tirelessly together to continue the learning online through virtual conferences and Google Classroom.
Whenever I taught during our Zoom sessions, more than ever, I realized the limitation of using one computer screen and how difficult it was to explain certain concepts to my visual learners.
I am planning in using the iPad and the Apple pencil so my lessons can become more interactive and efficient.
To be precise during our math lessons, pairing up the iPad with the computer, I will be able to show students the process of solving difficult math problems through drawings and explanations in real time.
It will also help and most importantly, it can be served as a second screen for me to respond effectively to my students during our Zoom meetings. I can become more visually accessible to meet my students’ individual needs.
