Apples for A+ Students

Help me give my students 3 new Apple iPads to use for research and reading.

  • $1,299 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach kindergarten through 6th grade students in the library media center at my school. My students love reading and engaging in activities using new technology. They are motivated learners that love to explore topics through different types of media.

Students at my school love to discover new things and research topics of interest using technology in the media center.

My students still love to have a great book in their hands, but they also enjoy being able to read E-books and articles using the technology in the library.

My Project

Adding three Apple iPads to my library media center will allow more availability of technology and research opportunities for my students. They will be able to work independently on projects instead of groups if they would like.

Technology plays a major role in today's media center, and my students love to use iPads to read and research.

We use iPads to read e-books, watch animated books online, research, do scavenger hunts, and so much more. So far this year, students have used iPads to search our online library catalog, to read E-books on Epic, to perform online scavenger hunts using WorldBook Online, and to learn about digital citizenship. Adding more iPads would allow students to work on their own to do these activities instead of in groups.
