Tech to Connect

Help me give my students iPads to use that will help them be engaged throughout their learning. Different iPad apps will allow students to learn in different ways that are unique to their learning styles.

My Students

I work in a 5th grade class with a very diverse group of students. They all have very different, unique learning styles that work best for them. Coming from a low-income district, it can be difficult for all students to have all the necessary school supplies. There are some students who get what they need and come prepared, and other students who struggle on a day to day basis with having the necessary materials to be successful with their learning.

As my students are always eager to learn, I want them to be as successful as they can be in school by having supplies and resources available for them in the classroom.

The students in my classroom have access to some supplies and materials, but since not all students can afford/provide their own, there is a limited amount of supplies and materials for the whole class.

My Project

The use of iPads in my classroom will allow students to learn and apply their knowledge in different ways. With the ever changing world of technology, it is important for students to not only learn how to use the technology, but also be able to help keep students engaged in their own learning and success.

The use of technology alongside other students, helps children with special needs connect with not only their learning, but others as well.

I have learned of many different learning and engaging apps that would be beneficial for the learning of my students. Unfortunately, I don´t have the available resources and technology to provide for my students. Having this technology available to my students will help improve their academic abilities and motivation to be as successful as they can be.
