An Apple a Day Brings Technology Our Way

My students need an Apple iPod Touch in order to bring 21st Century Learning into the classroom.

My Students

Help bring my classroom into the 21st century. My students face the challenge of not having the latest technology at their fingertips to better their education.

I teach in a Title 1 School, which means most of the students come from low income families.

Because the majority of my students come from low income families, most do not have the resources necessary to purchase the latest technology. Without technology, students become stuck in the ancient ways of teaching. My students are curious and creative, and they deserve the same opportunities as those students who have access to technology in their classrooms.

My Project

An iPod Touch would change the way my students read stories at the listening station during literacy rotations. Currently, my students have books on cassettes; however, we face the constant challenge of the cassettes getting ruined every time they are played in the cassette player. Most students have never seen a cassette player let alone know how to use one. Also, I find it difficult to find replacements when they no longer work. With an iPod Touch, books could be downloaded and listened to for years to come. Listening to stories helps build fluency, and it is a very important component when learning how to read. The iPod Touch would also allow me to download educational games for students to help them practice phonics, spelling, reading, and math. Students find it more exciting and motivational when they can learn with a technological device; thus, they would view their learning as fun.

Your donation of an iPod Touch will bring 21st learning into our classroom.

Please help make a difference in the way my students learn by donating to my project. I feel it is imperative to have technology at my students' fingertips in order for them to be competitive in a technology driven world.
