Technology for Interactive Art/Reading Lessons
My students need 2 iPads to share in my classroom. I teach both visual art and intense reading intervention. Every student that comes into my room would greatly benefit!
I've been inspired by the many experiences teachers have shared online of their students finding not only a neat segue into the technological world by using iPads during instruction, but by their students ability to find the motivation and drive within themselves to WANT to seek out knowledge.
My students attend a title-1 charter school in an urban area of Texas.
The student population at my school is INCREDIBLY diverse, teaching children many different countries that speak more than 10 different languages. Curriculum and instruction focus around STEM research; unfortunately thought the monetary resources don't often stretch as far at my students (or my own) imaginations.
I'm hoping to be able to use these iPads as a tool to help my art students see into the future of art...to see beyond the paper and pencil of traditional art.
Likewise, I'm positive that I can use the MANY apps available to help me boost my small group reading student's confidence. I've done several months worth of research surrounding the benefits of recording students reading for later playback, the benefits of touch to learn strategies, and how other teachers have been able to use an iPad as a tool to motivate students to WANT to learn.
I really can't wait to see my student's excited faces when I set them up with some technology that is otherwise forever unattainable to them.
Many of our students don't even have a computer at home and I'm anxious to show them just how big and wonderful our world is through this technology.
