Goal

The goal of technology for remediation is to target low performing students with special needs by utilizing visual and kinesthetic modalities through the use of iPads and applications that support Common Core Standards. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students who have been identified as Level 1 and 2 or at risk will utilize an iPad lab which will allow for differentiated remediation of skills. Students will be taught and led through various high interest, research based applications that will supplement current curriculum and interventions provided by classroom teachers.  

 

Benefits to my students

Small groups of students identified by teacher data, will receive immediate support of deficient skills by accessing targeted applications selected to remediate gaps in their understanding. Students will demonstrate mastery of the concepts as measured by post tests/retests. The benefit of this program is that it addresses deficiencies in an immediate manner, provides intensive remediation, and then reintegrates the students so the loss of instruction within the classroom is on an as needed basis. The small groups targeted will be based on present levels of classroom performance on assessments, therefore the groups accessing the technology will be constantly changing based on current needs. 

 

Describe the Students

Out of 210 4th and 5th grade students, 105 of them earned a Level 1 or 2 on their FCAT math. This is 50% of our population who have not met math standards. 21.9% of our population were a Level 1. These numbers account for our entire population, to include students with disabilities, economically disadvantaged, and at risk students.
