I teach at a Title I school with a high population of ESOL students. I am constantly amazed by my students' desire to learn and the amount of determination they have to succeed. One of the best ways I have found to provide for all of my students' diverse needs is hands-on learning and technology integration. Technology is able to bring to life many of the abstract concepts that my students are learning about and allows them to interact with a concept, instead of merely reading about it.
Students who are actively engaged are able to learn more and at a deeper level.
Technology allows us to tailor the education to meet the educational and cultural needs of the students.
Many of my students do not have access to individual technology and this limits what we can do in the classroom. A few kindles used to be enough to cover out needs but as the number of students immigrating from Puerto Rico due to hurricane Maria has increased so has the number of students who do not have their own individual devises.
These six requested Kindles can be used from everything from research to playing review games in the classroom.
By having a set to loan out I make sure that every student has a chance to interact with the technology and that I can integrate it through out all our lessons.
