Math Technology Centers with iPad
My students need an iPad Mini to improve math skills individually.
Every day, my students come into their classroom and are expected to jump right into math work and concepts. The focus is one one objective taught to mastery, which leaves little room for extension or remediation except through centers.
My students are a fabulous group of kids that accomplish great things through hard work.
They have many interests -- basketball, of course, but we have a gymnast and dancers, leaders and helpers. We are a predominantly black school in an urban Philadelphia neighborhood with active and involved parents, teachers, and administration.
Imagine walking into a classroom and seeing 20 students hard at work over bookwork. Off in the corner, you see a student (or two!) over an iPad with a set of headphones. In my classroom, this student is working just as hard as all of the others -- he is working on an individual assignment for enrichment or remediation using an iPad App, a website that covers a skill he needs to review, or a tool that enhances his understanding.
Although the expectation is that we focus on a single objective in our lesson planning, most of our students have many needs that go beyond the single objective.
Technology tools like an iPad engage the students and meet them at their level -- allowing them to grow faster and catch up to their peers or work ahead to their future.
