Ms. R. from West Helena AR is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

An Apple A Day Keeps Financial Illiteracy Away!

Help me give my students an ipad pro so that we can create google slides group presentations about financial literacy. The pencil will allow students to personalize their projects by adding their own special touches to the project.

My Students

I am a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district. My students are often faced with many challenges. These children come to school excited and ready to learn. They are hard workers and determined to be successful in their academic pursuits.

Curious, enthusiastic and creative; my students are eager to immerse themselves in any kind of challenge.

They are fearless when it comes to technology and, as children of the twenty-first century, they need to be prepared to use a variety of tools to engage their world.

My Project

My classroom will use the Mindblown Labs web app that teaches financial literacy as if it were a game. My students will go through ‘life’ as an avatar, making financial decisions along the way. They manage student loans, save for a home, and even have to confront financial emergencies, like being robbed. Unlike real life, they can quickly see what will happen in 30 years because of a decision they make today. For example, they’ll learn how credit card interest works by seeing what happens if a high interest credit card is maxed out and only minimum monthly payments are made: it could take 20 years or more to pay off the balance, paying thousands in interest along the way. With this app, kids can see directly how these kinds of decisions impact their financial future.

A classroom IPad will allow students to participate in the game as a group project, collaborate and design and create presentations using the Apple Pencil.
