Mrs. Wortman from New Berlin IL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students two iPads and protective cases. Our school has moved to Google Tablets, but many apps that students in my special education environment use with success are still only available within the Apple store.
I have the privilege of serving a group of incredible students with unique and diverse learning needs. Each student has their own learning plan that requires their own set of academic and functional tasks that they practice at their own pace.
My students work extremely hard to make growth in areas many of us take for granted.
These students need lots of support, and deserve every bit of it. Each day is an opportunity to learn, and someday I'm the one who learns. I wouldn't have it any other way!
My room is called the Structured Room because this is the strategy we use to learn. We use a combination of adapted materials and technology to deliver the curriculum to students in a way that makes sense to them.
When my school moved to Google tablets, it made sense for the majority of the student body.
However, my eight students continue to the applications available on iPads. Also, the iPads I have available are out of date. These new iPads will be able to stay updated and be used to keep students learning.
Students use iPads for modified activities to reduce to frustration with writing tasks and errorless learning. They also practice ABA type activities. There are too many possibilities to list here, but the number of affordable or free apps available that we use daily make the iPads a necessity in this room.
