My students need five inexpensive tablets and one adjustable tablet stand.
I teach one hundred happy-go-lucky teenagers who are eager to learn. They want to learn in new and different ways...every day. I have to keep them on their toes in order to produce more impactful lessons. I want them to remember what I taught them.
In order to teach a new generation of students, I have had to completely revamp the way I think about technology in the classroom.
Students interact with technology every day outside of school. It is their world. Therefore, learning needs to look like what they are experiencing in their everyday lives.
For a long time, I held on to my old-school pencil/paper method of teaching. This year, I started exploring the concept of "Blended" learning which is using technology along with paper/pencil methods. However, my goal is, by the year 2020, I want my classroom to be fully immersed in technology.
That is the world that my students are currently experiencing. I need to teach them to thrive in it.
Classroom learning needs to reflect the real lives of students. My school has made many strides toward making technology accessible. Unfortunately, I am still unable to have a classroom set of computers or tablets every day. I allow students to use their own mobile devices to complete interactive assignments in my class. However, every student does not have the available technology.
Having five tablets in my classroom would open so many opportunities for collaboration on a digitally enhanced lesson.
Having this technology available may also help classroom operations run much smoother. I would be able to implement a digital hall pass and/or lunch buddy passes.
