The students in my classroom and at my school are faced with severe emotional behavioral challenges that they must cope with everyday in order to come to school and learn. Their disability of emotional disturbance makes it very difficult for them to stay engaged in learning. In addition to their disability many of them have experienced intense trauma that makes it challenging to do everyday school tasks, let alone come to school on a daily basis. Despite their challenges emotionally and behaviorally, as well as the low income backgrounds they come from, they still have the biggest hearts and are eager to learn!
My students need an iPad in our classroom because it will allow myself to individualize learning goals for my students. Many of them need reading and math basic skills which they will be able to gain through interactive and engaging apps. These apps will provide differentiated instruction to access appropriate curriculum and make learning fun and engaging! This way they will be able to learn according to their individual level, while I still teach other students essential social skills to manage their behavioral challenges. It will also be used as a reinforcer for positive behavior which is my students primary goal!
