My Students

Albert Einstein once said, “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” Many students struggle when they cannot access information to push them forward. Students need first hand access to technology because many of their jobs in the future, will depend on it.

Our school is in a rural area with over 40% on free and reduced lunch.

Twenty percent of my own classroom participates in the local Backpack Pal program that sends home food to families for the weekend. My third grade classroom is filled with 19 bubbling students that are at a variety of academic and emotional levels. Some students are able to read on fifth grade level while others read on a preprimer level.

My Project

Being able to find grade level resources on a variety of reading levels is a challenge. Through technology, I can find resources for students to match both curricula and reading levels. By adding 2 iPads and cases, my children will be more able to use the resources to be successful. Students will also be able to use the devices to practice math skills. Many apps are available to support classroom activities and these can be adapted to each student’s needs. I can use ability grouping to meet students where they are and push them forward. These devices can play a large part in this.

This world has become a technological world.

One day in the not so distant future, these kids will be doing everything on devices. By easing them into them now, they will be more accustomed to them. These devices will be used for more than games. With your help, my students will be able to practice skills, do research and explore programs that will strengthen their abilities now and in their futures.
