The Versatile iPad
My students need an iPad to become better learners.
How many teachers can openly admit that their students can use technology better than yourself? This has allowed me to realize the importance in 'keeping up' with our generation and the changes on how they learn today.
I teach 22 energetic first graders and coach both spell and math academic bowl teams.
I enjoy my students enthusiasm and the way their "light bulbs" go off when discovering something brand new. We are from a rural area with a moderate population of the students living in poverty and have about half the school's population on the free and reduced lunch program.
My students need an iPad. Why would anyone only use this amazing resource for one only one purpose? Each student learns in different ways. I can think of multiple ways not only my first graders but also my academic bowl kiddos would benefit from the iPad. I can visualize my students bringing their knowledge they learn from the device and having the capability teaching others. I can see them using it through literacy stations, math centers, giving various assessments, and teaching my students responsibility and organization.
Please think about my students when you are considering to donate.
Technology has become vital when it comes to the child's focus and engagement. Time changes and we as teachers have to be willing to research and think about the child's need. I am willing to do just that.
