My Students

Each morning my kiddos start out with reading. Most of my students love it but some need extra motivation. I would be so grateful to have the opportunity to give my students an alternative option for reading material. Digital literacy is becoming a necessary skill set for the students of today.

I teach in a high-poverty suburb in Missouri and our classroom is composed of 20 students eager to learn about the world around them.

Many students do not have access to technological devices and have limited exposure to them as educational tools. My goal is to expose my students to experiences with technology that help them discover and express their learning in a safe and educational environment.

My Project

There are many ways I envision using these resources in my classroom. Part of being a great teacher is differentiating my instruction to highlight student strengths and targeting areas to work on. The iPads are one way that I can create that type of classroom. I would like to enable my students to complete assignments in a differentiated, digital format and expose them to the digital skill sets they will need to know in order to be successful in today's work force. I would like to allow students to work at their current performance level. We will be able to use certain sites, applications, and access online books to reach these goals. I would also like to use the iPads to connect with families and other classrooms through social media like our classroom Twitter, Google Hangouts, etc.

I want my students to love reading and I want to make it fun for them.

This project will make a difference in my classroom because we currently have limited technology at our school. My classroom has one teacher laptop and one cart of student laptops that is to be shared amongst the entire school. These iPads will allow students the daily exposure to digital literacy that they need to be successful in today's world.
