The students in my classroom come to me from a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds, experiences, learning styles and abilities. I three different high school mathematics courses. My students come to school eager to learn and work very hard each day. We are a Title 1 school and about a third of our students come from lower socioeconomic households. Our district is a desirable place to live due to great communities and schools.
When a teacher dreams of the ideal classroom, my students are the ones they are thinking about.
Being able to provide them with a variety of learning experiences is one of my passions. Variety is the spice of education.
If I were to have an iPad that I can use in my classes on a daily basis, there are an impressive number of apps that I can use to enhance student participation, enjoyment, and (most importantly) learning.
Examples of apps that I can use with a single iPad include Plickers (a real-time assessment tool that allows all students to participate in the activity), Stage (an app that allows me to scan student work with an iPad and then project and annotate over the work), and Classroom Screen (this app allows teachers to display the time, a calculator, and an interactive whiteboard all on a single screen).
