Goal

My goal is to increase the rigor of instruction and engagement in activities, and to increase student stamina while working independently. 

 

What will be done with my students

I am requesting three iPad minis that will be integrated throughout all content areas in our classroom.

First, after using my own personal iPad in the classroom, I have discovered that there is an app for almost everything! On any given day, my students will be able to read an endless amount of digital books, create and play digital learning games, present a research project to the class, and instantly reflect their work onto the Smartboard!

Also, these iPads will give my students the time needed to reach their grade level goals in two research based computer programs that have been implemented by our school district. With consistent use, both ST Math and Istation have been proven to help bridge the gap between my students deficits in math and reading to the grade level performance of their peers. Unfortunately, many of my students do not have access to a computer outside of school, so these iPads are crucial to my students' success in these programs.
 

 

Benefits to my students

With the use of iPads in my classroom, 100% of my 16 students will increase their rate of success in all content areas (most notably in literacy and math). Also, my students will be better equipped to meet their end of year goals in ST Math and Istation. 

 

Describe the Students

While I work in one of the highest poverty schools in the district, this is not what defines my students. Regardless of their varying academic abilities, I work for the most wonderful, talented, and innately curious bunch of kids, and their determination and resilience in life are the qualities that make them my perfect little team!
