My students are 5th and 6th grade high ability students. They have strong technology and keyboarding skills. They LOVE to research and create projects using technology. We also complete most of our assignments using Google Classroom.
My students would benefit from having a wired keyboard to help them write the longer pieces like essays that they are developing at this grade level.
A keyboard will help the writing process go much more smoothly, as well as make the students feel like important writers.
Recently our district provided our class with a set of iPads. The students are loving using them on a daily basis, and they have been a great tool for daily activities as well as researching projects. However, students are struggling to type paragraphs and pieces of any real length on the iPad screens. We were given 10 keyboards; students either need to share or take turns using the keyboards.
My students would benefit from additional keyboards so that everyone has a keyboard to do their best work.
Although we very skilled at using the iPad screen, keyboard typing is much more comfortable and productive.
