My students need iPads so they can interact with digital materials such as DreamBox Math and Learn with Homer.
My students come from a variety of family structures, some 2-parent, most single-parent, as well as grandparents as guardians. Most students have not had any academic experience prior to Kindergarten so they are bursting with excitement when they come in the door. Getting their 5 and 6 year old brains ready to learn requires focus and control to guide their high energy in a positive direction. I believe in them and they believe in me, and together there is nothing that can stand in our way!
I have seen proof of how technology provides a positive impact for students by allowing them to interact with educational content in a digital format. My students will use four iPads (along with the four that our school bought with a grant) to track their improvement and demonstrate their growth by meeting and going beyond grade level standards.
DreamBox learning will allow students to engage with math in an adaptive and differentiated environment.
The difference is made when instructional content and methods are customized to individual students to guide/facilitate learning and mastering of new concepts. This new learning style is data-driven, and takes a non-linear approach to instruction. It’s able to track student progress as it teaches, adjusting its instruction accordingly and providing myself as a teacher with important data that will effectively guide my whole group and small group instruction.
Learn with Homer is the first digital foundational reading program, created by literacy experts and advisors to the new Common Core standards, combining decades of experience in education and in the classroom. Their program is both visually engaging for a child and highly
effective, based on a proven body of research on how children best learn to read. Learn with Homer follows an explicit, systematic, and sequential approach to reading instruction.
