Bring Tech to Our Dual Language Classroom

My students need iPads and a 3D printer to bring their learning to life!

My Students

Our students are a part of the 50/50 dual language program at our school. All the students are taught fifty percent of the time in Spanish (by my partner) and the other fifty percent of the time in English (by me). The students are mostly native Spanish speakers, but there are also some native English speakers in the program. The goal is that all the students will be fluent, and literate, in both English and Spanish.

Our students come from an area that is mostly low-income (three-quarters of homes).

Unfortunately, some of our students enjoy comforts such as electricity, running water, a complete meal and a feeling of safety only when they are at school. All of our students are extremely appreciative of the tools and equipment we have available to us to make learning fun.

My Project

I am asking for iPads and a 3D Printer for my second grade students. I'd like these items to further our learning.

Last year, our focus was to replenish necessities as our students, faculty and community recovered from the devastating after-effects of Hurricane Harvey.

Now that an outpouring of support has helped us cover basic needs, I'm ready to push our learning further with some new tech.

Our students would use the iPads daily during stations and group work to practice skills we are learning.

The 3D printer would be used during whole class time to print replicas and manipulatives to bring substance to what we are learning.
