My 5th graders are a unique group of students that are generous, inquisitive, ambitious and creative thinkers. My 5th graders love to go above and beyond to rise to new challenges and create hands on engaging projects where they are able to think outside of the box and show their unique characteristics, abilities and creativity, which is often utilized through technology. They come into my classroom each day ready to tackle new experiences and learn from one another. They are truly an inspiration to myself and our school community!
My 5th graders need iPad cases in order to keep the equipment and technology working properly for the daily activities we create. As the demand of utilizing technology in education continues to grow, it is important to take care of our technology so that it can work properly whenever needed.
We are one to one classroom with iPads and utilize them every single day for students to embrace their unique qualities and creativity; however our iPads currently have no cases at all.
This is a major concern for my students and their parents, as they want to utilize the technology daily in order to prepare for their futures, but are afraid of breaking or scratching the iPads. We use our iPads to learn, explore, read, write, research and create amazing projects. We also use our iPads for monthly state mandated assessments and yearly assessments as well. My students love to share their work with their families on the SeeSaw app as well. These cases are important to my students and offer a great way for them to feel safe while utilizing our technology. The cases also feature a kickstand which will allow students to work at their tables, desks, or anywhere around the school with ease and the feeling of knowing that their iPads won't break or scratch if they walk somewhere with them. I know the cases will keep the iPads safe and will allow us to use them for years to come in the future. They are durable and very much needed.
