I have 80 ESE English students with either learning or emotional disabilities. In addition, they come from a low-income area with a strong desire to achieve great things. Many of them have very little experience with computers and technology, but want nothing more than to conquer this obstacle. They are dedicated, determined, and full of desire.
Their struggle with learning and technology has turned into an unquenchable desire.
With a differentiated instruction and a technology interacted curriculum, they will succeed.
Having Raspberry Pi 3 motherboards will firstly allow my class to build their own Computer Learning Lab. They will use their hand-built computers daily for instruction and activities.
As students with learning or emotional difficulties, they need a diversified curriculum and proper, guided experiences on computers.
They will develop necessary computing skills (word processing, typing, researching, blogging, and even coding).
Their state assessments all come in the form of computerized exams (reading and writing). They will gain knowledge that will prepare them for, not only their assessments, but for life outside of school. The skills they will learn will be highly valuable to their future success.
