My Students

My students are a dynamic group of children. They enjoy working together and sharing ideas. We are a school that promotes unity. My class is a 7th grade Pre-Algebra class. At times, they need to be motivated and experience opportunities for success. This project will help with creating an environment that is comfortable and conducive for learning.

My students need additional technology to be competitive in this virtual society.

Upon completing a survey with my students, over 75% expressed a desire to have additional technology in the classroom. They also enjoy completing assignments and educational tasks on computers.

My Project

This iPad will be used to expose students to the use of technology. It will be used as a resource for small group instruction, individualize instruction and differentiated instruction. Some students learn best through use of technology, so this will allow those students the opportunity to experience success in the classroom. This iPad is needed because over 75% of my students do not have access to technology beyond the classroom environment. My desire is to have my students be equipped with resources that will allow them to compete with their peers in affluent schools.
