In a technology driven society it is imperative that students have the equipment they need to thrive in such a society. These iPads will not only strengthen their literacy skills, but broaden their skills in the use of technology. These skills will only prepare them to be confident and able to operate successfully for the years to come. Students will use these iPads for reading centers as well as for interventions in the classroom. Students at this age can manipulate an iPad much easier than a computer desktop device. Time spent learning the content is increased with iPads rather than on desktops because they can make their choices by touching the screen and not typing or learning to use a mouse. These iPads will ensure that students can build and grow their literacy skills as well as their mathematics abilities. I am confident that this project will create a new wave of excitement and learning in the classroom!
