My Students

My students come from diverse and varying economical backgrounds. We are currently doing NTI (non traditional instruction). All my students have been forced to be digital learners from home. They are now more reliant on technology than ever before. Most of my students have access to some type of phone or computer for viewing video lessons.

My Project

This new larger iPad Pro will help me in creating lessons and videos. Right now my students rely on my video lessons and digital meetings as their means of learning. Creating videos is my main tool for teaching because of a need for flexibility for my students. Not all students can attend digital meets. Teaching at home is difficult enough as it is, much less without updated technology. The Apple Pencil will allow me to draw out notes to teach during meets. It will also help me to create quality notes for my videos.
