Technology Has Improved Our Behaviors!

My students need an iPad with a case in order to continue to encourage positive behavior and decrease negative behavior.

My Students

Is this really a behavior unit? This is the question I often hear when people enter my primary EBD classroom. My students know the iPad is an earned tool, and I have noticed a huge decrease in negative behaviors since we introduced one. An extra iPad in the classroom would be a huge benefit to us.

I teach the primary EBD (Emotional Behavior Disability) Classroom in my school.

We are a high poverty Title One school. My students range in grades from K-3. They require constant attention and are frustrated easily. Our main goal is to get behaviors under control as well as teach social skills so they are able to go back out into the general education classrooms successfully. I have been able to get 3 students back out into the Gen Ed setting so far! I have a great class and my students just need extra love and patience when dealing with them. Usually when people enter, they cannot believe we are a behavior unit, because they have already learned so many skills to be successful in our classroom. Thanks for reading.

My Project

My students thrive on technology, and an iPad used to reinforce reading/math/and even social skills is a great way to get students occupied so we can work with other students. As well, at the end of the day, earned iPad time is huge! Since we have implemented the one iPad in our classroom we have, we have noticed a big decrease in behaviors. The students know they have to earn the iPad, and this is something they work hard for.

I believe in my students.

I have seen what they can do. With a little bit of love and patience, my students are able to thrive in their academic success. By adding an additional iPad to our classroom, we will have extra time to work with other students, while others are on the iPad engaged in academic and social programs. I believe in my students and with a little help, I know they can succeed.
