Goal

To provide students with the opportunity to utilize technology as an effort to support mastery of second grade standards within the classroom setting.  

 

What will be done with my students

Ipads will be utilized daily by students in small group and/or independent settings as a tool to access district approved technology applications. The devices will serve as a technological approach to meet individualized academic needs.Students will have the ability to access district purchased or approved programs such as Compass Learning (Reading and Math), Zearn, Imagine Learning, etc. to foster individual learning gains.
Our class will greatly benefit from more technology in the classroom. Programs such as Compass Learning, align with each students' instructional need based on STAR Reading and Math Assessments. There are also teacher designated, standard based assignments to promote individual growth for each student.
There are currently 15 portable devices in our classroom, 9 functioning laptops and 6 Ipads. This number does not provide students with enough student to technology ratio during small group rotations for both Reading and Math. With additional devices each student will have more time to access the programs listed above.
 

 

Benefits to my students

The requested Ipads will allow students better access to individual technology throughout the day for all subject areas of instruction with an emphasis on reading and math during small group center rotations.
Because of the individualized nature of the district purchased or approved programs such as Compass Learning and Zearn, all students will benefit from increased access to technology. My ultimate goal is to reach a 1:1 student/portable technology ratio. This grant will provide us with 2 additional Ipads bringing us closer to our goal.This grant will benefit students for years to come as we continue to implement additional technological advances in the classroom.
