My Students

My students eyes light up when they see we are using iPads, the problem is our school of over 700 kids, shares 25 iPads. The majority of my students come from under privileged homes, without devices, computers or wi-fi at home. Help us Flip our classroom!

I teach 3rd grade, which is the perfect age!

My students are still young enough to give hugs and want to please, but old enough to really start challenging them and doing exciting things in the classroom. We want to "flip" our classroom, which allows each student to be in charge of their learning and go at their own pace. We have to have iPads so we can start "flipping," but the majority of my students don't have a device they can bring from home. We need your help to bring technology to our classroom!

My Project

In math, we use devices for Think Through Math, a program our district purchased that is proved to increase math understanding/scores. We also LOVE to play Kahoot, you can use this game for any subject and it turns learning into a game show type environment. In science, we use devices to complete Websurfing, these assignments connect us to links with games, videos and articles about whatever we are doing in class, such as the water cycle. All of these resources are great, but the most engaging way I would like to use devices is to have a "flipped" classroom. Where the students are in control of their learning. They watch a video, with a prerecording of the day's lesson, do some practice problems (where they are able to pause/rewind the video) then take a short quiz to show me they got it. If they got it, they get to go on to more challenging tasks. If they don't, they work with me. This lets every student to work at their own pace and get one on one instruction!

Truthfully, school is not always designed for kids.

Asking an 8 year old to sit in a chair for 6 hours a day just doesn't make sense. We recognize that in our room and try to make learning as engaging and fun as possible. In today's day and age that means technology! Devices help us tackle the hurdles of large student to teacher ratios, attention issues, and differentiating instruction (offering all of my students, what they need at their level.)
