Technology is the wave of the future! Help my students to incorporate technology into all subject areas to enhance understanding and creativity!
I am a Special Education teacher in an Integrated Co-Teaching classroom in Brooklyn.
We are located in an area that was highly impacted from Hurricane Sandy. I travel with my students to math, science, social studies and English. We are a Title One school and my class is comprised of students with disabilities as well as struggling learners. Many of my students fall far below the grade level standards and need help accessing the general education curriculum.
Having an iPad mini would allow my students to conduct research, view multimedia to assist in their understanding, create projects using educational applications and allow me to differentiate instruction for each student. For example, some students benefit from hands-on activities and we would be able to engage in virtual labs in science, use interactive math programs, view primary documents and videos in Social Studies and research evidence to support our writing across the content areas.
We also engage in an online differentiated reading program called Achieve3000. Having an iPad mini in the classroom would allow us to provide reading intervention for higher level students who complete assignments more quickly, skill building support for struggling students and full class engagement in articles that apply to the content areas.
Technology will make an incredible impact on my classroom.
My students respond with higher interest levels when technology is involved. Many of them may struggle to explain themselves with words, but they are more than capable of creating a visual representation to demonstrate their knowledge.
My students would be ecstatic with their success if we were able to meet all of their needs and individual learning styles through the use of technology.
