Tablet: Differentiation At Your Fingertips

My students need a tablet so they can use translation software and look things up whenever necessary so they can stay on track with the class.

My Students

Make a difference. Many of us take for granted how helpful the Internet is on our life. We use it to look up restaurant reviews, sports scores, or movie times. However, there are many students who do not have access to the internet and desperately need it for research, translation, and education.

My students are learning disabled or English language learners.

They come from hard-working, honest, lower-middle class families. They attend a large, 4 year high school in New York. They live in areas hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy. Some have lost their homes, many have lost their possessions.

My Project

There are many ways my students would benefit from having a tablet in my classroom. For my English language learners, they could use translation software to help them learn how to write English. For my learning disabled students, they could research subjects that they are learning or topics that they are having difficulty with. For all my students, they can research colleges and apply online.

This tablet will bring many of my students fully into the 21st century.

Sadly, many are homeless, powerless, and struggling from the storm. Unfortunately, learning must go on and many of students don't have the resources they once had. This tablet will ensure for some of my students that their education does not miss a beat.
