Project Goal

The Goal is to increase the time Migrant students are supported in Reading, Math and Educational Learning by providing support in the home.  

 

How Project Benefits Students

Migrant students often have multiple issues that prevent them from staying on pace with the school curriculum. Continued movement interrupts their education, parents often do not read or speak in English so they are unable to help their children read at home, most students are second language learners and have limited access to English vocabulary, families are mostly low income and can not afford supports to help their children academically. The Amazon Fire Tablets have thousands of age appropriate books, videos and educational games, with easy-to-use controls so the teacher can create settings focused on the student's needs. It comes with a kid-proof case, and a 2-year worry-free guarantee. The Tablets will be checked out to students to take home and must be returned to share with other students. The expectation is that the tablets will be used by many students over several years.  

 

Expected Outcome(s)

The Amazon Tablet is highly engaging and made especially for children. The expectation is that students will want to read the stories, watch the videos and play the educational games at home, that the teacher sets up on the tablet. This will extend the time the student is exposed to English language and vocabulary. It will increase fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. This will help students to be more successful in school and score higher on State exams.
