“We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world.” - David Warlick, educator, author, programmer, and public speaker.
I am the luckiest teacher in the world simply because my students love to come to school every day.
My students attend a public, elementary school that serves more than seven hundred fifty children.
About two hundred of these students are refugees from more than fifteen countries around the world. Most of them receive free or reduced-rate lunch, and 100% of the students in my class come from families with limited English. These kids enjoy simple pleasures. They get excited when a teacher brings popcorn at the end of a grading period to celebrate their achievements. They are very inquisitive and love discovering new things with little help. My students have the ability to amaze me every day.
I want my students to take advantage of as many of the technology tools available today for learning. Students are curious by nature and having a large number of ways to demonstrate or apply their learning will foster even deeper knowledge. With this project, my students will be able to project their math or science work and share it with the class from any of the classroom's iPads. Sharing will become a simple, efficient, and enjoyable task. The Apple TV will be used almost daily allowing me to observe and facilitate their learning experience. It will certainly promote a higher level of independence.
