My classroom closed mid March and we have been remote teaching ever since. I have been using an old macbook pro to teach remotely but it has been freezing and restarting here and there. We are currently using Microsoft Teams to video chat and resources such as BoomCards and interactive PDFs to work on IEP goals and group lessons.
My students and I will be distance learning for the remainder of the 2020 school year. This means I must have the materials to continue teachgin! I got my current Macbook Pro when I went to college in 2010. It has served me well but is unable to keep up with my current needs. It is really struggling with teaching remotely and has been glitchy. This new laptop will help me continue teaching virtually with my class.
I am hoping that a new Macbook Air and Airpods will enable me to efficiently correspond with my students as well as create and implement a range of curriculum materials.
It is imperative that the technology used during this period of online instruction be high-functioning and accessible.
