A Bigger Vision: Moving From the Pod to the Pad
My students need an iPad Mini to help replace our antique iPods in our classroom, which are 4 years old and don't run many of the apps we need.
Who remembers their 4th grade class? Need to know something? Pull out an encyclopedia. How to spell a word? A dictionary, of course. Map a country? Check the atlas.
Man, have those days changed!
My students are 4th graders, between 8 and 9 years old, leaving a 3rd grade class of 20 for a 4th grade class of 33.
50% more students cuts down on the amount of attention they received just a few months ago. Now, they can hold a little help in the palm of their hand.
Why an iPad Mini? Consider the following: Landing Curiosity on Mars, Felix Baumgartner's jump from the edge of space, engaging video, raps learning grade-level vocabulary, Bill Nye the Science Guy lessons, and books on "tape". These are all great ways to learn! I can safely add these items to an iPad Mini for students to hold in the palm of their hand.
Ever flown over your town to see your house from 500 feet?
My students can, with Google Earth. Who lives closer to school, you or your best friend? Pull it up and measure it out! Spelling practice, learning vocabulary with flashcards with full-color photos, challenge each other to learning math facts, I can hand it to them, in an iPad Mini, with your help! Want to see the Eiffel Tower from space? Done. Photos of van Gogh's paintings? How many can your eyes take in? Google it! Enjoy!
