With Technology... We Can Read!!!

My students need an Apple iPad Mini to help them read independently.

My Students

"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." Albert Einstein Everyday my students show me what the miracle of learning is all about! I want to show them what the miracle of modern technology is about!

These students are amazing and are showing me in more ways than one why Special Education is so important!

Every student is learning and showing growth. It is a blessing to be a witness to this amazing progress. Our disabilities range from mild cognitive impairments to severe cognitive impairments. Some students are not ambulatory at all and require frequent positioning changes. Our school is outside of Houston, TX and is a Title 1 School. 70% or more of our students receive free or reduced price lunch. We are located in an area that is targeted as an low economic area.

My Project

The iPad will bring modern technology to students that would not otherwise have exposure to this kind of technology. In our class, an iPad would impact learning on so many levels. There are free cause and effect apps that students with severe cognitive impairments can access if we had an iPad. The benefits an iPad will have on our students with Autism will prove to be huge. There are so many apps that I have received training on that I can not wait to implement with my students with Autism. I will be able to work on their communication skills through the iPad. For our students that have limited ambulatory abilities, we can put the technology into their hands. They are unable to use the Smartboard, but with an iPad, the technology can come to them. It will be so exciting to see them experience modern technology too! The impact that the use of an iPad will have on our class will change the learning experience for these 19 students and many more to come.

By allowing our Special Learners a chance to use technology that they would otherwise not have access to would be life changing for my special needs students.

You will literally be putting technology in their hands and directly impact the ways in which they learn! Thank you for taking the time to read about our project and I hope you choose to donate to our class.
