2nd Grade Students Need 21st Century Technology

My students need an iPad mini so they can access the internet based math computer programs in my classroom.

My Students

Many of my students do not have access to any computers at home. The only time that they get to practice learning keyboarding or work on the ST math program at our school is during their scheduled time in the computer lab.

My students are wonderful second graders.

Our school is located in a high poverty immigrant community in California. The parents of most of my students have never finished high school and my students will hopefully be the first ones in their families to go to college. My classroom consists primarily of students who are learning English as a second language. I also mainstream autistic students and learning disabled students in my all inclusive classroom.

My Project

I would love to have an iPad mini in my classroom! We use the Mind Institute (ST Math) self paced math computer program at our school. I currently have one old desktop computer for my students to use in the classroom. The iPad mini will allow additional students time to work on ST Math in the classroom. This math program reinforces math lessons that I'm teaching in the classroom and it allows advanced students to go on and work on math standards that have not yet been introduced to the class. The iPad mini will allow more students to work on the ST Math program and it will also help my students become familiar with important technology tools that many of my students have never yet had the opportunity to use.

My students love math and science!

I try to make my lessons exciting by bringing their lessons to life so all students can be exposed to the curriculum. This project is important because it will allow my students to be able to practice the math skills they are learning. I hope this project helps my students become confident and excel in math. This project will make a difference because it will positively influence many of these students to stay in school and pursue careers in math and science.
