My Students

All of my students are unique in their strengths and challenges, and it is the job of the teacher to promote and foster my students individualitly and love of learning.

If our class were to gain access to a bank of iPads, I could more easily differentiate their learning to benefit their strengths and foster support where they need it most.

My students need electronic tablets to do all the things that will make them successful in this 21st century learning environment.

My Project

Through the use of iPads in my classroom, I can more easily differentiate learning practices for all levels of students. Also, iPads are a great way to make reading, math and science more fun and inviting for students of all academic levels.

Many studies have shown huge learning gains through the use of iPads in the classroom.

For example, A research study, conducted in Auburn, Maine showed that Kindergarten students using iPads scored much higher on literacy tests than students that didn’t use the device.
