Goal

My goal is to continue to build the number of portable devices I have for my students to use in the classroom. I have been working on building my technology for several years through grant requests. I would like to use this grant to purchase 2 more iPad mini's for the classroom. 

 

What will be done with my students

My students use the iPads in partnerships, and in independent work. We find new ways to use the technology every week, it's just amazing!

Here are are a few examples of what my students are able to accomplish while utilizing the iPads.

We are using programs and apps like ST Math, Stack the States, Math Problem solving, and science virtual lessons.The students love to use Vocabulary City (using the class membership I purchased) had been a fantastic resource, and a fun way to learn our vocabulary words.

There are also some new things I would love to begin. I would love to start using iMovie and Book Creator in the future with the iPads.
We will begin using apps to publish digital stories and to create digital projects.

We have two teachers at our school who are planning to give some tech/iPad workshops for teachers after school to show us even more ways the iPads can be used in class.

The possibilities are endless as new materials are being added to the app store every day. My students will use the iPads to enhance all areas of learning.

 

 

Benefits to my students

The benefit of integrating technology into my third grade classroom has been amazing. I would love to have one ipad for every child and am working towards that goal. I am doing this because I see how much it benefits them already! Technology is their main means of communication. They are immediately engaged when technology is brought into learning. Reluctant writers have shown the most growth using the ipads, as well as some of my reluctant readers who have built their reading stamina just from being able to choose from our "virtual library" of books. Technology in the classroom is an amazing tool.

 

 

Describe the Students

My classroom has 23 third grade students. There is always a LOT going on, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I have an esol student, several gifted students, and a range of performance levels from low to high performing. The students have very different home lives as well. I have a handful of students this year without any internet service or technology at home. They just LOVE being able to learn what it's all about while they are at school.
