Connect Us to the World
My students need access to an iPad to use with the Apple TV that was installed in our classroom this year.
"What does an avalanche look like?" "What's the biggest butterfly in the world?" "What is a trough?" These are all questions that were asked of me today at school. Second graders are curious. They want to know as much about the world as possible. I want to open up the world for them!
I have a room full of inquisitive students who are eager to learn.
They are hungry for knowledge about the world around them. We live and attend school in a rural part of Maine and many of their experiences are limited to the walls of our school and their homes.
My students have the privilege of having an Apple TV in their classroom this year for the first time. Having an ipad to pair with our Apple TV would enable the students to share their work and ideas with the whole class instantly. An ipad would provide mobility as I circulate about the room instead of being anchored to the TV with a cord. Students would be able to make videos of each other retelling stories or reporting on knowledge and videos can be shared with the whole class. There are many free apps that can be used with the whole class using only one ipad. Some of these apps include exploration of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, story book readers, Google Earth and Google maps and Garage Band among countless others. Our students need access to more technology in order to keep up with the world.
I am excited to incorporate technology into as many parts of the day as possible.
However, I do not have access to a device that will work wirelessly with the new system . There are so many ways we could use an ipad!
