Creating eBooks in the Classroom

My students need a Mac Mini to be able to create and use eBooks.

My Students

I teach 7th grade history students in a suburban school in Pennsylvania. They love hands-on, project-based learning, which is exactly what this project would bring to them. The students love to try new things, especially when it comes to technology in the classroom.

My students love hands-on projects that increase their learning.

With this donation, my students will not only be able to create electronic books for projects in my classroom, but would be able to begin a community outreach project. Certain organizations in our area have printed resources that we would be able to make into interactive electronic books for them. This would be another great application that we could use this donation for.

My Project

With the donation of a Mac Mini computer, you will bring the opportunity to my students that will allow them to create, compose, and write electronic books in the classroom. This will boost the type of projects that my students will be able to make to show me what they have learned in the units that I teach. When you have the opportunity to create something as a student you retain that knowledge and become a life-long learner.

When you have the opportunity to create something as a student you retain that knowledge and become a life-long learner.

Remember those significant points in your education when you created that shoebox project or that poster board presentation. This will be something significant that my students will be able to create based on your support!
