Mrs. Inglis from Lincoln MI is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bringing the Outside In

My students need to protect our iPads while using them outside for environmental studies. When they get back to the classroom they need headphones to work independently on video production and interpretation of data.

My Students

I teach a great bunch of students who care about their community and have the heart and drive to succeed within it. They participate in a variety of outside activities ranging from youth sports, 4-H, various church and community youth groups.

My students are energetic and enthusiastic about learning the STEM curriculum, both in the classroom and outside the school environment.

They vary in age from five to eleven and have a large skill set both across and within grade levels.

Approximately three-quarters of the students in our elementary school receive free and reduced lunch. The majority of our students are low income and high risk. However, what they lack in income they make up for in heart and spirit.

My Project

My students would like to be able to take our iPads along with us to help with data collection during our place-base, environmental studies. Right now there is no way to protect the devices from accidental falls, dirt and debris while participating in our place based opportunities. We need sturdy cases and screen protectors to ensure that our iPads are kept in good working order during our studies.

Place Based learning opportunities are far more productive when you can bring data from the field back into the classroom for further study.

When we return to the school my class would like to produce videos and presentations about what we learned while out in the field. This is very difficult without the use of headphones to keep noise level down. With the use of headphones for every student our productivity will increase dramatically.
