iPads Make Math More Accessible!

My students need an iPad and protective case to be able to access math apps and Osmo kits we have in the classroom!

My Students

I work with a high poverty, high ELL population in Northern California. Many of my students learn best through hands-on games - like computer/iPad games as they are used to playing video games at home. Many can not sit for long periods of time to listen to lessons being taught at the front of the room and need movement and variety in how I teach.

Stations are the most successful way to get my students to learn as it balances direct teaching with the movement and variety of learning that they need to stay motivated and focused!

My Project

We do not have an iPad in our classroom. I would like to have an iPad and protective case to be able to have a station that kids can go to in pairs or triads to work on math apps that you can only get on iPads. I also have a few math Osmo kits that require an iPad in the classroom, so it would allow us to use those without me having to bring my personal iPad into the classroom.

My students are very technology driven and learn best through my math stations - which having an iPad in the room would allow for another interactive, self-driven math station.
