Our school is a public school in Alaska. We serve many families from the military and the import/export industry in Alaska. We also have many native Alaskan families and immigrant families. Our school is one of the early childhood centers in the district. Our school is Title I and high poverty, and most of our students are bilingual. We are extremely diverse, and many languages are spoken within our school family.
Inside the classroom, we utilize structured learning in order to create an environment that fosters learning.
We use a wide variety of behavioral techniques in order to shape behavior into what is desirable.
We can use the learning tablet in our early childhood classroom to learn with the educational apps. We can practice our letters, shapes, colors, and numbers. Using this valuable tool we can reach students who have communication delays. Right now, my students get excited with a game and suddenly, it stops. They click on a different activity allowed by the Board pre-loaded application, but some don't work. Therefore, their experience with tablets is useless. Using these early childhood tablets, my students will have a one-on-one learning experience where they can be learning while still having fun. They won't have to deal with watching an online video that has so many commercials sometimes not appropriate for 3 and 4-year-old children or using the iPads in the class that don't really work. My students are coming back next year for the second year of PK and they need something that will help them grow academically. These tablets and their accessories such as headphones, cases, and learning games will help a lot with their learning letters, numbers, and different subjects in a fun and engaging way.
