iPad = iSucceed in Second Grade

My students need two iPads to use for independent practice and small group work during readers workshop.

My Students

The world around us is evolving, and technology is at the forefront of this change. We are in the age where students would rather play video games instead of playing outside. Technology in the classroom is no different; evolving. However, our classroom does not even have one working computer!

I work in a Title III school in Houston, Texas.

The majority of our students (about 80%) are on free or reduced lunch. I teach Language Arts and Social Studies to 40 second graders. I have several students this year who have limited English proficiency. They are very eager to learn and grow.

My Project

I spent two days this summer at an English Language Learner conference. Throughout the two days I went to several different workshops on the use of technology, specifically iPads in the classroom. I learned about hundreds of different applications that students can use to enhance their learning independently and during small group time. Students will be able to work on grammar, reading, sentence building and writing projects. The iPad will self-correct any wrong answers, giving students immediate feedback. I will have a few students this year who speak limited English. There are several different applications that will help the student communicate better with me and vice-versa. It will also help to enhance communication with parents and families. The possibilities for using an iPad in the classroom are endless and so are the learning outcomes.

Technology has become an integral part of education.

However, my students have very limited access to technology in our classroom. This project will put technology and learning at their fingertips!
