Students in my school come from a low-income area where 99% of them are awarded free lunch. Many of them come from broken homes, bounce around to different relatives, and some are even in shelters. The school has 5-7 classes on each grade, and many classrooms have many students with special needs who need a little extra TLC, visuals, and repetition. My school offers these kids a warm, safe, and loving environment daily. Although most students have a tough start in life, they come to school eager to learn and do their very best.
My students use technology daily! They do a lot of research for science and social studies, they do research projects for writing, and they use on-line apps to help practice their skills and further their knowledge. Currently, we are lucky and blessed enough to have 19 tablets! There are 30 students in the class, so we are trying to get more tablets funded so more students can go on at the same time.
My students use tablets every day, several times a day!
For more of them to have access at the same time would be a game changer! They use myON and News-O-Matic to push their reading levels and find out about current events. Additionally, they use Mathletics, IXL Math, and XtraMath to push their mathematic thinking and practice. Having more available tablets would allow more students to access amazing technology!
