Revolutionalizing Teaching with Ipad Technology

My students need to be hooked into learning, and one way to do that is through an iPad and accessories.

My Students

It's time to hook students into a lesson and since students today are in tune with digital media, an inspirational clip from Ytube will do the job. The only problem is teacher computer is too slow to download the clip, and by the time it does download, all the students are off task.

My students attend an urban middle school, in Washington State.

The surrounding neighborhood is poor and 86% of the student population receives free or reduced student lunch. The student population is diverse with over forty different languages are spoken, and most students are either immigrants or are first generation Americans.

My Project

Students today are learning differently, then they were ten years ago. Today, students are more tech savvy and with the advent of smart phones, students can access lessons from anywhere. Teachers need to incorporate resources from the net to further enhance student learning. Edmodo is one such app that is revolutionizing teaching. It is an app where all lessons from units are housed that students can access; students can also send their typed papers, access vocabulary through Quizlet (another app), or analyze a clip or a piece of poetry. Another powerful app is called Educreations where a teacher can explain their thinking just like if they were giving a live lesson. There are so many resources out there, that can truly enhance students' education.

I want to be able to access all the resources that are available, that will augment education for all my students.

Apple is known for its educational applications which is why I want an Ipad. By having an Ipad I hope to use the best educational apps, and have another way of exposing students to lessons and resources which I believe will be the way of teaching in the future.
