My amazing group of students come from low-income, high poverty areas of our inner city. They are lively, energetic, inquisitive, and excited about learning and discovery. They enter my classroom each morning eager to engage in project experiences, creative art, science experiments, music and movement, and curricular math and literacy experiences. Our classroom community is a safe haven for all, as my students exude kindness, respect, and caring for each other on a daily basis. They are a special group!
The addition of the iPads into our classroom will add an amazing technology dimension to my students learning and exploration. The students will have opportunities to access and play a variety of curriculum aligned math and literacy games individually and in small groups, as well as research topics for classroom projects. This will be an awesome, fun way to reinforce specific concepts.
The majority of my students do not have technology experiences at home, and the iPad integration will be a great way to introduce them and their families to the educational benefits that more affluent schools receive every day.
