My Students

My students want to get their hands on the classroom iPad, but their teacher needs assistance in knowing the best way in which this can be accomplished.

I have been teaching art in public school to elementary aged students for 19 years.

All 19 years have been with the same school district--the district I attended kindergarten through twelfth grade. I hold a bachelor's degree in art education (K-12), a master's degree in educational leadership, and am National Board certified in early and middle childhood art. After 18 years of teaching--and the majority of those years included traveling between 2 schools--I am now teaching full-time in one school. I teach art to kindergarten through fifth grade students in a Title 1 school. I will soon be pursuing renewal of my National Boards certification.

My Project

I am requesting professional development in the use of iPads through an online course offered by The Art of Education, "iPads in the Art Room." The course will be completed in the month of May. This school year, through a state grant, I received one iPad mini for use in my classroom. Since my classes contain 20-28 students each, I have been at a loss as to how to successfully incorporate the use of one iPad in my classroom. Through the "iPads in the Art Room" course, I will learn about various apps that will be appropriate and beneficial for my students. I will also learn effective strategies for using 1 iPad in the classroom.

My school is a high poverty, Title 1 school.

Students are very limited in arts experiences outside of the school, as well as technology use. I want to bring the experience of art AND technology to my much-deserving students. I need help in learning the best strategies to get the iPad out of my hands and into the hands of my students.
