Creating, Sharing, & Learning Through the Use of iPads

Help me give my students 3 iPads to allow them to enhance their learning through engaging technology. The use of iPads will allow these students of the 21st-century an opportunity to work with tools of their world.

My Students

My students are resilient, hardworking, thoughtful individuals that love learning in new exciting ways. I have been fortunate to see growth in them both personally and academically. They are a true inspiration to me!

Many of my students have shared with me that they would love the opportunity to use more technology in the classroom.

Unfortunately, this opportunity doesn't exist yet. Our school is a Title I school, and all our students receive free lunch. My students either come from single parents homes and/or homes of low socioeconomic status. The technology currently available is outdated and does not allow students to actively engage in learning on a daily basis.

Regardless of these adversities, my students come in daily ready to learn and explore new topics. In minimal times, I have been able to incorporate technology into my teaching, students have shared how much more excited they were to learn.

My Project

Technology in the classroom is no longer a luxury but a necessity. In this day and age, technology is always evolving and those that are exposed to it evolve as well. Students are now coding games and stories, creating digital art, and enhancing their understanding of the world with the assistance of iPads. My students are looking to have the same opportunities.

Like all things, when students are exposed to technology early, their familiarity and comfort grow.

With the use of these iPads, I will be able to expose students to technology through reading, math, research, creative arts, and coding activities. The iPads will allow our class, especially our female students, to experience coding at an early age which research has stated is important for creating future coders. The use of these iPads will also allow students to finally make the learning their own in new and fun ways!
