Technology is becoming a more critical resource in the classroom to help create 21st century learners. Kindergarteners naturally have very curious minds, and I want to help fulfill their curiosity through exploration. Most families have access to digital technology at home, so learning can bridge the gap and create a home/school connection. We need Kindles for the classroom to support independent learning systems to differentiate for my students. My students will use these tablets to explore their ability to draw, count, and read! We strive for students to be able to excel in an ever-changing world, and experience with updated technology will help them achieve it. I would love to eventually have my Kindergarteners practice appropriate research strategies. By donating to our project, you are allowing an opportunity for my students to become masters of research, reading, drawing, and constructing in today's technical world! Having these tablets, our classroom will provide meaningful learning experiences for the students in place of many field trips. Today's technology allows us to virtually see just about anything in the world we are learning about. Oftentimes, Kindergarteners are very literal beings, and struggle understanding concepts that are not concrete right before their eyes. Google Maps Street View and other apps allow us to take a trip, for example, to New York Harbor and see the Statue of Liberty in all her glory. Virtual field trips like this will allow my students to build more schema, have a more visual representation of the curriculum, and deepen their understanding of the world outside of Casper, Wyoming.
