  • My Class Needs iPads to engage students in the learning process

    Digital Media Creation: Expressing our ideas through design Classroom Project at Surrey Centre Elementary

    My Students

    Our class consists of a wide variety of learners. There are several students with written output challenges who require technology to express their ideas. There are also many students who are not motivated in a "traditional" classroom. I have found that these students are highly motivated by using technology and the opportunity to express their ideas in a way that directly suits their learning style, be this through writing, speaking, or creating a visual representation using an iPad.

    How will this project impact them?

    Students will use the iPads in a variety of ways. They will use them to access information in a way that is more engaging than a textbook (websites, videos, games). They will also learn to share important information using a variety of digital methods (iMovie, Book Creator, Comic Life). This will help to engage my students in the creation process and also allow them to produce something that they are truly proud of that can be shared with their peers and parents. I see this as an opportunity for some of these struggling students to be given the opportunity to thrive in the short term, but also be given the tools with which they can carry on their success as they continue in their learning journeys.
