iWriting With Technology!

My students need to learn how to type and get used to notetaking on an electronic device for college. The 27 keypads will connect to iPads the school already owns.

My Students

About 70% of my students have been classified as English Language Learners at some point in their schooling. They come from a working-class background, their parents often have not graduated college. It means a lot to my students to "walk across that stage." My students have big goals and they will accomplish a lot of firsts in their family. A good majority of my students have had incredibly challenging, difficult events in their life, from deaths to "broken homes." How they wear that scholar mask is often beyond me. But they show up and work hard. I'm honored to teach them.

My Project

My students often use the school's iPad cart for a video project, a Kahoot, or Internet research. Yet despite this great access to technology, students (it seems) type less and less. But the need in college and the business world has not changed. My students need to practice typing. These Bluetooth keyboards will help.

I will have my students take notes using the iPad as well as journal and write papers.

The benefits for digital writing are huge (as they can save it, share it for feedback, and easily edit). I also hope they will view technology more as a tool than an entertaining diversion.
