3rd Graders Need iPad to Better Understand Math and Science!

My students need an iPad Mini to help them better understand math and science concepts. This will also give them a better grasp of new technologies.

My Students

What would we do without the technologies we rely on every day? For many of my students, they do not have the luxury of being able to use the internet at home. Technology is growing extremely fast and I want my students to be able to use these tools and learn from them.

I work in an impoverished rural community in East Tennessee.

We are blessed with beautiful scenery, but unfortunately many of my students live in very poor conditions. These children's families often struggle from pay check to pay check and are not awarded the opportunities and privileged that I was. Most of my students do not have internet access at home and are only able to use it and learn from it at school. They practically salivate when they are able to get their hands on a computer mouse or tablet.

My Project

I am asking for an iPad Mini because I know it will get used in my classroom every single day. It will be used by individual students and in small group situations. This will greatly improve my students understanding of math and science concepts and they won't even realize they are learning. I will also be able to link it to my Promethean Board and use it in whole class settings. The possibilities are endless! My students will literally jump at the opportunity to use this tablet for anything I ask, even if it is as simple as reading an eBook. There are great educational apps in the iTunes market that will be used in my classroom. These are not only fun, but the students will be able to look at math and science in different ways. This will help them better understand the concepts as a whole which will greatly benefit them in the future.

Thank you for any support you can provide!

I know the students will love this new learning tool and it will be used every day. I will make sure to put insurance on it so that it can be used for years to come in my classroom. I really appreciate your help with providing my students with better opportunities!
