My Students

The students in my classes are the lowest academically in the district and also struggle with behavior in a large class setting. My classroom is designed to get students back up to grade level and improve behavior. The students come from all over the district, from a variety of other schools to get targeted academic interventions in order to get them more prepared for their grade level classroom. They come from very low socioeconomic house holds. Most are not used to having structure, so a regular class of 30 is too much stimulation for them. My class provides smaller numbers and a higher level of teacher interaction and relationships. My class is a second chance for students who have given up on themselves.

My Project

We are hoping to get iPads for our students so that they can use them to create digital portfolios and capture their hands on work during class time. We would also like to give them the chance to learn how to be responsible with technology and give them experiences with different types of learning styles.

Having an iPad will give the students the option to use different apps, take pictures of their work and create a digital portfolio to share with their families.

Our students have limited technology access and most have no technology in their home. Having access to an iPad will give students the ability to learn 21st century skills that they will use for the rest of their lives.
