Goal

My goal is to increase the academic learning of my class of Title 1 students by providing the technological means for them to compete in the global economy despite their low socio-economic status. 

 

What will be done with my students

We will use the iPads to supplement the current technology in the classroom (laptops and teacher-purchased kindles) to do our science "better" and to apply our learning to today's current technological trends. For example, students will use the iPads during the science board projects to document their use of the scientific method and prepare to communicate their findings successfully on their boards and online. Teacher will be able to track progress more efficiently and help students self-monitor their learning on the tablets.  

 

Benefits to my students

By providing them with better technological resources, they will be able to increase their learning of science and math standards as they document their science inquiry, use applications to record data and observations, and communicate their findings with other student-scientists. 

 

Describe the Students

I have a variety of students in my class: 18 students currently, more than half are low SES, 6 students have progress monitoring plans (mostly in math), 4 black, 2 hispanic, and the rest are white or multiracial. In addition, I teach 8 (out of 20) of my classroom students in an after-school STEM academy on Wednesdays in which they will be creating apps for devices in the second strand.  

 

Budget Narrative

Three iPads will be purchased.
