The goal of this grant is to increase technology in my classroom. Technology can be used to help aid in the learning process. A goal for any teacher is to have engaging lessons. The tablets will do just that. With internet access the possibilities are endless. This will not only engage student learning but should also increase student academic performance.

Goal

The goal of this grant is to increase technology in my classroom. Technology can be used to help aid in the learning process. A goal for any teacher is to have engaging lessons. The tablets will do just that. With internet access the possibilities are endless. This will not only engage student learning but should also increase student academic performance.  

 

What will be done with my students

The funds will be used to purchase tablets. I plan on downloading various apps that will engage students to expand their knowledge on particular lessons taught that day. The tablets will also be used to conduct research on 5th grade Florida state math and science standards. I plan on using these tablets throughout the year on different topics. The students will also be able to access their outlook account in which they can use excel, word, powerpoint, and other Microsoft features.  

 

Benefits to my students

Having some tablets in my class will benefit my students by allowing them to access technology to further research certain topics. We encourage our future scientist to stay curious and ask questions about the world, however, they need a place to answer those questions. A text book can only provide so much information. Watching video clips, conducting simulations, and reading across different texts can help these scientist answer some of their questions.
Not only can the students use the tablets for conducting research but they can also use the tablets for practicing math. By fifth grade the students have learned a variety of math. They must constantly be practicing these skills. Engagement is a huge struggle with any teacher. Having interactive apps that help the students practice these skills will only help the student. The tablets are NOT going to be used to take the place of the teacher. They are only there to SUPPORT learning.
 

 

Describe the Students

It is almost impossible to describe the students that will be benefiting from the tablets because these tablets will be used year after year. The students that will be benefiting right away will be the upcoming fifth grade students at Athenian Academy School. There is a mixture of low, medium, and high performers. This group of fifth graders will contain ESE (exceptional student education), IEP (individualized education program, and 504's.
