Putting the Pieces Together: Inclusion with an iPad

My students need an iPad for individualized review of specific skills in math and reading and for recording their progress in a visual and meaningful way.

My Students

Do you know what it's like trying to complete a project or a task and you don't have the correct tool you need to do it? I'm sure you have been there and it can be a very frustrating experience. Especially when you already have a difficult time with that task at hand even with the right tool.

My students face this dilemma everyday.

They struggle to achieve in the regular classroom whether in math or reading. And it is not because they are unable to learn. They just learn in ways that are different from the norm. They often just need the right tools and motivation.

My Project

The iPad is an amazing piece of technology with truly unlimited potential in almost every environment including school. My students would greatly benefit from this technology as an unlimited number of apps would assist in their practice of essential skills. As an inclusion teacher, I am working in with my students in several different regular classrooms throughout the day during reading and math classes. I most often work with a small group of students customizing instruction to meet their needs. As a special education teacher, I am held accountable for the progress of each student on a regular basis and based on their individual needs. Because of this increased level of progress monitoring and individualized instruction, and iPad would open many doors in recording essential student data allowing me to customize instruction in real time based on student growth. An iPad would also allow me to customize skill and drill exercises for individual students.

This project would vastly increase the motivation and individual instruction of each student, allowing each student to feel more successful while receiving more specific learning to meet their personal needs.
