TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students a technology boost to increase their learning experience!
My students are 7 of the most awesome Special Education kids you would ever want to meet. They have all been diagnosed with Autism and are unable to participate in a traditional classroom setting. A majority of my students' families survive on one income, absentee fathers plague the homes and technology is often not deemed important and therefore isn't accessible. My students love being able to use technology at school, but unfortunately, due to a limited supply of tablets for special education students, they are limited the amount of time that they are able to check them out and use during instruction.
The use of technology is almost a daily activity in my classroom, especially in Language Arts. Using station teaching model with technology for ELA and Math has proven to be an effective strategy with the autistic population. It allows me to see exactly what they are doing, as well as provide an easy place for them to show and share their work. What becomes a problem is the fact that we only have 2 tablets in our class and can only work in pairs at the teacher station. Even though they are great about doing this, it limits me from reaching more students at once for a particular lesson. It would be so beneficial if each student had a device at their disposal, this would allow for whole group instruction and would increase the amount of instruction.
By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at their fingertips, and better comprehend their lesson as well as an easier way to complete their assignments. Plus in this technology literate world, any interaction with updated technology will increase their literacy as well as their desire to learn and use the new technology!
