Learning Thru Technology

My students need 3 tablets because the laptops I have are over ten years old and no longer work well.

My Students

Can you imagine what it is like to have ADHD and not have a computer load for almost 20 minutes? You are bound to get in trouble. I would love to be able to get tablets for my students so they will want to learn, and so they will not lose patience waiting for the laptops.

My students all have learning disabilities.

I am a special education teacher in a small town. The budget is getting smaller and smaller as the years go on and I would like to get tablets to help my students stay up in technology. This is an opportunity they may never get again but in the few short years I have them, I would like them to learn about technology and learn there are more ways to cope with their disability besides paper and pencil.

My Project

With the tablets I will be able to do more then just paper and pencil. I can take the activities I do on the smartboard and let them follow along with me on the tablets. That way I don't have to have them lose patience waiting their turns. I can use my multisensory lesson approach in reading, writing and math. I will not rely on just the tablets but it will be another tool I can use to help motivate as well as show the students the world of technology that they may not get at home.

It will show my students that there is a whole new world out in technology and there are different approaches to learning about the basic reading writing and math that they are used to just paper and pencil.

It will open their eyes and hopefully give them the push to realize they can have this technology if they work hard and succeed and go off to college. Please help my students succeed :)
