My classroom is a dual-language classroom in a Title I school district. This means my students all come from Spanish-speaking homes, and most of them come from poverty. My students are trying to learn all the objectives that the state requires them to learn at the same time that they are trying to learn a new language.
For my students, being able to have a great variety of hands on activities and visuals with which they can work at their own pace are essential!
If I can also incorporate technology to their practicing of skills, the students will enjoy these materials even more!
Most of my students come from economically disadvantaged homes where technology is not always a given. Many of my students have never used a computer or an Ipad,
My students need to be exposed to the technology of today as much as they need to master the curriculum that the school district provides.
Having these Ipads and headphones in my classroom will give them the opportunity to be exposed to both things. I will download in the Ipads many different Math and Science apps that my students will be able to use when they visit the technology learning station. Math and Science concepts are hard for my little ones, but I know that being able to practice all the concepts on these ipads will improve their comprehension of what I teach.
