My students need an iPad Pro to enrich the classroom experience by accessing applications specifically for Apple products and to enhance the class experience with a mobile whiteboard.
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district in Chicago and former student of this district, I understand that my students are faced with challenges both inside and outside of the classroom. Despite those many challenges, the mathematicians that I enlighten are motivated problem solvers, curious about the world around us and destined for success.
My students are amazing middle schoolers stuck somewhere between cool and fabulous.
Many of my students are bilingual with English being their second language. They enjoy mathematics, and they are quickly learning the importance of teaching others how to fish instead of simply giving fish to our peers.
Just like most teenagers, my students love technology and socialization, and I want to use their interests to create a more efficient learning environment that fosters collaborative learning, open communication, developing their skills with technology and access to class materials that promote an inclusive class environment.
An iPad Pro would be a valuable asset for our classroom. One of its many uses would be connected to our Smartboard and used remotely throughout the room. What's written on the iPad will project onto the Smartboard as I am able to move about and assist as needed. This new piece of technology will allow me to walk around the room while writing, highlighting and emphasizing key material from the palm of my hand.
A class iPad would bring new technology skills all accessible through an iPad Pro.
Students would be able to access iMovie to create and edit video presentations, I can teach without facing the board and having my back to the students and exposure is key. Exposure is key to teaching and apple products are far and few in our school unfortunately. This project will give them an opportunity to learn about new apps for video editing, math fluency, coding and placing a mobile whiteboard in our hands aiding in instant feedback.
