    My Students

    At our large high school we have many students that could use a personal tablet to support their learning needs. Many of our students have learning disabilities that require the use of technology to support their academic output. By placing technology such as an IPad in their hands, the students have to ability to produce quality work in a timely, orginized manner.

    How will this project impact them?

    This technology means that students can work more independently to become self learners. Our goal is to encourage independence and self-learning. For many of our students, these goals are met best by the use of technology in particular apps or programs like Dictaion, Prezzi and Popplet. These are age appropriate apps that work well in the classroom.
