Ms. Winston from Atlanta GA is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional development

Tools for Teaching Coding in the Digital Age

I need the tools of a 21st century teacher such as an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil to practice coding using Swift Playground and to access online professional learning for coding iOS apps.

My Students

I passionately teach English/Language Arts to third graders with varying levels of ability to produce entertaining narratives and detailed informative reports.

My students deserve and would benefit from having exposure to unique experiences beyond the typical urban public school day.

My students live in an area that makes up 30% of the prison population in Georgia. Nevertheless, my students come to school each day eager to learn academic and social skills to become college and career ready! Their desire to be distinguished scholars truly inspires me to be a better educator and advocate for children.

My Project

I teach writing in a 1:1 Computing STEM-based classroom. While I deliver writing instruction face to face, all assignments and tests are online via Google Classroom or GoFormative. This blended learning initiative prepares my students for their online End of Grade Assessment. I also believe that exposure to blended learning has sparked an interest in my students’ desire to learn the language of coding!

My students would benefit from their teacher having the latest instructional technology such as an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil to practice creating digital graphic art as well as coding using Swift Playgrounds and to access online professional learning for coding on an iOS platform.

I recently completed the Apple Teacher online professional learning program for Mac and iPad. The next level in my pursuit of maintaining exemplary status as a “Digital Age Educator” is to complete the Apple Teacher online professional learning for coding, so I may earn the Swift Playgrounds Badges! My students strive to exceed goals when they frequently see role models providing examples of how to produce innovative creations and products. The iPad Pro and Apple Pencil allow me to do just that!
