My Students

“We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world.”

My students live in a very impoverished area of town.

I have a number of students who live in the local homeless shelter and depend on the lunch and snacks provided by the school. I teach in a class that has general education students as well as special needs students. My goal is that all of my students will develop a love of reading, math and learning in general so that they may succeed to their highest abilities.

My Project

My hope is that with these iPad minis I can begin to foster a love of learning that will stay with my students long after they leave my classroom. I plan to use these iPad minis throughout the school day to enhance reading and mathematical skills. Students will use specific apps to improve their skills. With these iPads the students will become engaged in our daily lessons!

These materials will greatly improve not only my students' school day but their future.

With these materials my students will learn reading and math skills but will also learn how to use technology, which in today's world is vital for success!
