My Students

My current students are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders. They are vibrant and eagerly want to demonstrate their understanding and grasp of concepts. They are enthusiastic to work on computers or utilize technology during differentiated instruction. Learning becomes fun and they get to show their creativity, inquiry mindsets and their independence as much as possible. As a teacher of students with Autism Spectrum Disorders, I am cognizant of the impact that technology and technological applications have on their readiness, knowledge retention and everyday life.

My students are excited about learning!

They are students with autism who have unique personalities. Their special needs make them unique. Our school is a Title I school, which means the majority of the students get free lunch. They love to learn with technology to be just like their typically developing peers. Despite their disabilities, they have a hunger for knowledge and are excited, and happy, to come to school and learn new things each day.

My Project

IPads are a great resource in the classroom. It enhances the user/learner experience through the use of several applications that can be used by the students to work on science, mathematics or language arts. Virtual field trips become useful when teaching civics and social studies. Students can explore exotic parts of the world using Google Earth. I could also direct a lesson via NearPod and students can receive live feedback as the lesson progresses.

Students develop critical thinking skills by becoming content creators.

Students will use the iPads as video cameras, audio recorders, and multimedia notebooks. The iPads will provide opportunities for students to work at their own pace and I intend to use apps and games to make learning more personalized to the student's progress.
