iPad Minis For Students to Succeed in Educational Technology

My students need iPad minis to utilize online resources provided by the school.

My Students

My students are very bright. They want to learn but do not always have as many opportunities as other students. They come from an urban setting where education isn't necessarily valued. A lot of my students struggle with reading. 80% of my class is below grade level when it comes to reading. There are online resources the school uses but the computers we have do not always work. This makes getting on the computers difficult if not impossible at times.

My Project

The students will use these iPads on a daily basis for several different apps. The iPads will have educations apps added to them for students to use. Some of these apps are programs the district paid for that they use in the classroom already. Apps include i-ready and Kidsa-z. They will also be using Safari to access books online. The computers they use do no work consistently so these iPads will help to ensure that students are able to access their apps on a more consistent basis. The iPads will be utilized during small group time so the students will be using them independently. The iPads will also have selected games added that students will be able to use in free time as a reward. My

Students do not all have access to the internet at home so this added access will be very beneficial to them.
