iPads for Tech-Savvy Second Graders!

My students need iPads to practice much needed early math and literacy skills, as well as to document their project-based learning and share their thoughts with families and other authentic audiences.

My Students

I teach an energetic crew of 17-second grade students in Dorchester, MA. They are talkative and inquisitive, eager to learn new things that will connect to their lives and validate their experiences. In a Project-Based Learning environment, our crew works together to learn through reading, writing, experimentation, and fieldwork experiences.

When learning is engaging, purposeful, and relevant to students' lives, they are able to not only take in new information, but remember it and find a use for it.

All students deserve an education that will prepare them to enter the world and help them to become better people. As they work together, they gain the important questioning skills that will help them to become life-long learners.

My Project

In an increasingly digital and technical world, it is common for students to know more about technology than we do! My students have so enjoyed a computer programming study we did where we used scratch Jr. to learn how to give commands that a computer can follow. They looked forward to the end of each day when Science came and they could create their own video game using what they had learned through discovery.

It is important that we teach our students digital citizenship from an early age and provide them with the tools they need to use technology as a tool for learning and social change.

Students will use these iPads in many areas of our curriculum, from using mind-mapping apps to organize notes they take in reading and observations they make in science, to using math and reading apps to practice important fundamental skills, to documenting their work in the design process and sharing their voice and their creations with families and community members.
