Mrs. Piccolo from Jacksonville FL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Appsolutely Amazing!

My students need a class iPad in order to access our digital textbooks. This technology will also allow my students access to a wide variety of educational apps we can use on a daily basis.

My Students

This year I will be teaching three very diverse classes. I work at a STEM K-7th grade charter school, 3rd grade Science. My students are eager to learn and very active. They loved to be engaged in the learning process and use hands-on materials. In using technology I am able to keep my students focused and give them the opportunities so share their 21st century skills with myself and their peers.

My goal each day is to help turn the light bulbs on in my student's minds and let their "Ah ha" moments brighten each and every day.

My Project

My project is to raise enough money to have a class iPad. My students love technology and devour learning when they can physically get their hands on the materials. My hope is to allow them the opportunity to do so.

With the iPad they will have access to their online text book as well as multiple educational apps.

Some of the applications that we will utilize in our classroom would be "NASA, NASA Visualization, National Geographic, and the Smithsonian Channel." Students will be able to research their unit topics for information using these resources.

My students will stay engaged and excited to come to my class everyday and learn!
