Teacher Wright from Miami FL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students an Apple iPad for simulated interactive mathematics opportunities that allows for real-world applications and real-world problem-solving.
I service students in grades 3-5 in my district with a variety of learning abilities. Most of my students are at least two to three levels below grade level. Each student is identified by their strengths and weaknesses recognized by quarterly computer-based diagnostic assessments. With this in mind, it is imperative that I provide individualized computer-based learning opportunities for improved academic proficiency. I have discovered that my student focuses attentively while engaged in computer-based learning activities.
My students become academically independent, motivated and innovative when they interact with computer-based learning programs that provide instant rewards of encouragement.
As a teacher/coach it is also rewarding to see my students develop a love for learning. Each child becomes an active and intricate part of their own educational successes.
Students love playing an active role in their learning process. Recently, I have allowed my students to utilize the interactive board to present project-based activities. However, it has become arduous utilizing my teacher computer. My students are unable to access up-to-date apps and programs that allow for simulations. Mobility throughout the room has become a problem as well.
With the use of the Apple iPad, my students at each school can access academic apps that are fun and user-friendly.
Additionally, they will be able to present from their assigned group's location throughout the classroom. Small-group, whole group, and Independent learning will be productive and exciting.
I firmly believe, that providing students with technological opportunities that build learner capacity, encourages creativity and cultivates intrinsic independence results in increased student proficiency.
