My students need 4 Android tablets and cases for "Connect, Collaborate, Create" which supports standards like research, writing, editing, reading fluency and technology.
Connect, Collaborate, Create! Please help us learn 21st Century technology skills while mastering Common Core Standards and having fun!
Our students are enthusiastic learners at the only California Distinguished School in our district's recent history.
In the past few years, many of our students have met and exceeded California Standards assessment goals and they're on target to do so again this year. As a large percentage of our student population is socio-economically disadvantaged (86% free/reduced lunch), students don't necessarily have access to the technology of their counterparts in other areas of California. The students who will be impacted by "Connect, Collaborate, Create!" are 2nd graders from my classroom. They will work in groups to complete the project and present their projects at Open House in June.
The purpose of "Connect, Collaborate, Create!" is to provide our students the basics of 21st century skills. The Android tablets we are requesting will give students an introduction to the Framework for 21st Century Learning and ISTE Student Technology Standards emphasizing collaboration, creativity, research, critical thinking, communication, and technology use. The tablets will promote increased engagement and provide motivation, too. This project takes learning BEYOND THE BOOKS. First, students collaborate to research interactive sites about life cycles. Next, they write paragraphs and instantly co-edit as the tablets provide direct feedback about grammar and spelling. Finally, they use the tablet to record their voices reading the paragraphs. Upon playback, they immediately hear and track their increasing reading fluency on the tablets. Four main goals, which align to our current content standards, are met within this project: research, writing, editing, and reading for fluency.
Our teachers and administrators wish to grow our students' technological awareness.
Your donation will help our students take a giant step toward preparing them for the future of technology.
