Most of my students are from low-income families. My students LOVE technology, but most only have interaction with computers at school. My school focuses on early childhood literacy, so we do a lot of reading in my class. I try to make reading as fun as possible so that my students are engaged and learning! My students are special because they are curious, they are driven, and they each have their own strengths. I am amazed by them daily and love our little class family.
I believe iPads in our classroom will give my students easier access to educational and intervention programs. We currently have 3 computers in our classroom, but the only time they can use these is during small groups. I would love a chance for them to all be able to be on a device at once so that we can learn TOGETHER. I find that when my students use technology, they are totally engaged in learning because they are having fun! It would be wonderful for them to each have their own device that can be used to access reading and math programs.
