Goal

As a 3rd year teacher, I am still working towards getting materials that can help me provide my students with the best possible learning experience. I believe technology makes learning fun and interactive for students. My goal is to provide my students with the opportunity to use iPads in the classroom.  

 

What will be done with my students

There are many meaningful ways to integrate technology in the classroom. With all of the amazing applications out right now, I have so many plans for these iPads! For example, they will be used to interact with my students by conducting polls, tracking learning progress, collecting learning artifacts, communicating online, randomly selecting students during lessons, monitoring noise levels, and tracking behavior. These iPads will also be filled with wonderful applications for the students to use to enhance their learning. Some applications that I particularly like are iBooks, Goodreads, Comic Life, Audiobooks from Audible, Math Champ Challenge, BrainPOP, Bill Nye the Science Guy, Encyclopedia Britannica, iMovie, and many more! 

 

Benefits to my students

Having iPads in my classroom will allow students to use technology in an educational manner, which may not normally be offered to them. I will incorporate the use of iPads in all content areas. Since I have a wide range of learners, I will use these iPads to differentiate my instruction to help better accommodate my students with special needs and to challenge my higher achieving students. Technology will be used as a tool to enhance my students’ learning. Students will be able to use these iPads to take control of their own learning by researching and finding the answers to their questions and starting educational conversations with their peers.  

 

Describe the Students

My students are the reason why I love my job so much. They are special and unique in their own ways. I have some students working below grade level, some students working at grade level and some students working above grade level. My students also enjoy learning concepts in many different ways. I work hard to differentiate my instruction to meet the needs of all my students. Having iPads in my classroom will be another tool to help me provide my students with the best possible learning experience.
