Mirror iPad Projects With an Apple TV!

My students need an iPad mini to learn how to CODE (computer programming) and an Apple TV to present their projects to the class.

My Students

I want students to show up to learn and not be afraid to make mistakes. There is a quote by Theodore Roosevelt called "The Man in the Arena" which explains that the credit should go to the person that tried and if by train, and they still failed, then at least they tried.

I teach third grade in the Spanish Biliteracy Program, in which the majority of students have received instruction in both Spanish and English since they entered elementary school.

The students in this program can read, write, and speak in both languages. Some students are stronger in one language than in the other, however, they try their best every day and praise each other for trying.

My Project

Students will use the iPad mini to learn how to code using apps. I have introduced coding into my lesson plans by using apps like Daisy the Dinosaur and Scratch Jr., which students used to create stories. I would like to further their knowledge of coding by using a Sphero 2.0, which can be used with the iPad mini. The Apple TV will be used to project students projects by mirroring onto the screen.

The majority of students at my school are English Language Learners, and come from low-socioeconomic households.

They do not always have access to books and materials at home, much less have access to technology that will entice them into computer programming. The iPad mini will allow students to create projects that they can mirror/display with the use of an Apple TV.
