Storytelling in the Digital World Pt. 3

My Students

My students are special needs students who have multiple disabilities. They walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. They are a group of children who work hard at being an inspiration to themselves and to others.

They enjoy incorporating what they have learned from real life experiences and they are very enthusiastic about learning!

There are many outside factors that they cannot control that can affect their day. They each have their own learning needs which makes it very important for me to provide my students with differentiated instruction, a safe environment as well as an education that is based around whole brain learning.

We are a part of an elementary school in Columbus, Ohio which is highest poverty. Our students do not have the resources at home to succeed in this world, so it is my job to help them learn these skills at school!

My Project

As an educator, I will always try my best to provide plenty of opportunities and resources to enrich my students' experience in school. My students need iPads (our goal is 4 ipads!!) that will be used during circle time and small group activities. An iPad will allow us to explore a whole new world of fun and interactive learning! My students love to act out stories with dolls, puppets, and costumes.

Because I teach students with disabilities including autism, what better way to teach social stories than having them be the main character!

They will learn positive behaviors and skills such as how to play with friends and asking for help. In addition to social stories, we will create videos based on their favorite books such as "Scaredy Squirrel" and "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus". Furthermore, there are so many educational apps with interactive storytelling. These apps will allow my students to listen to stories with animations followed by engaging activities to check understanding. Exposing my young learners to the latest technology at an early age will no doubt be vital to their future success!
