My Students

I teach at a low income, Title one school. My students are language learners from various countries. My students want to be successful in their learning endeavors. They are explorers of the English language. Most of them do not have access to the Internet in their homes. They are not able to use resources that will help them translate, build vocabulary, and conduct research. In today's fast-paced world, they need to have access to different forms of technology.

My students are inquisitive children of the 21st century.

They are willing to face challenges in learning English. However they need help to bridge gaps caused by not having exposure to technology.

My Project

My students are eager to excel, but lack technological resources that will help them with today's fast paced word. They need the latest technology that will aid in them discovering about the world around them. They are inquisitive language learners. The iPads will aid them in translations and vocabulary development. Also, they will be able to conduct research about topics that interest them. The headphones will allow them to practice listening and speaking the English language.

Students depend on schools to teach them how to use the Internet to aid in their learning and development.

Our world is full of technology, but it is imperative that students are prepared to use technology responsibly. My students will learn how to surf the Internet. They will use multiple resources to learn about the past and present world. Also, they will be able to translate information into their native languages for learning.
