My Students

My classes consist of special education students with learning disabilities in language arts or math, attention deficit disorder, or autism. Other students are English Language Learners or have multiple obstacles that interfere with their learning. Most students come from low income families and receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch. They are eager to learn but we lack technology for these smaller classes.

As a result most lessons rely on overheads, outdated textbooks/worksheets, and are overall not engaging or effect for a classroom with such diverse needs.

Our students love to watch educational videos, participate in interactive activities, and are really eager to learn when given the right tools and support. Unfortunately, most days their learning suffers from a simple lack of resources.

My Project

Having these computers would allow us to have a more flexible and engaging classroom. Instead of whole group work, we can better differentiate their learning. It would allow us to implement useful apps for math and literature practice, several programs to help with classroom accessibility, or even to just peak their interest by allowing them to use virtual reality or videos for pre-reading/priming activities.

Students could be in rotating groups where they can watch videos to build their background knowledge on a story, or could use computers to help with writing by using speech to text programs.

With a classroom with such diverse needs, every bit of flexibility counts.
