The majority of my students are from low income families in Flint, MI. My students do not have the resources available to them that so many students around the country take for granted. Despite a lack of resources, many of the students come to school and try their best to get the education they deserve.
When many of my students are dealing with so many negative things in their lives, my goal is to give them the best possible educational experience so they are inspired to continue working hard towards improving their lives through education.
I would like to eventually have several iPads available to my students for use in the classroom. Having the iPads available to my students would give them the technology needed to work on research projects in my classroom.
Educational apps are another reason I would like to have iPads for my students.
Many of my students struggle severely with geography. By having iPads available with geography apps, my students would be able to get additional reinforcement of the curriculum taught in the classroom. Many students are going to benefit from being able to learn about geography while using technology rather than through traditional maps and textbooks.
