Mrs. Yost from Wheeling WV is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creativity Through iPads: iCreate With Technology

Help me give my students an iPad mini to use as an alternative tool in our technologically driven classroom. The iPad will let my students perform tasks that other technology limits them from doing.

My Students

"If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow." ~ John Dewey. My 21st century learners are enthusiastic about hands-on, digital learning. They relate best to apps in class as a result of the amount of time they spend on their personal technology devices.

My students make up a third of the roughly 400 ninth graders at our county's public high school of almost 1500 students.

These students come from four separate feeder schools; they make up five sections of English 9, and one section of composition. They are diverse in the ways they learn where they excel and struggle at a variety of levels. Regardless of those levels, they all desire to learn and advance. Plus, they all have excellent attitudes towards trying new things.

My Project

We want to be able to view TED lectures in conjunction with the Intelliboard, make movies using iMovie, and use iSource to check the accuracy of citations in both MLA and APA format. These are just a few ways in which the students in my classes will use an iPad. They will learn that digital tools at their fingertips are an educational resource that needs to be utilized to incorporate 21st century standards.

My project will make a difference because my ninth grade students will carry the learned digital/technology skills with them throughout their educational endeavors.

They will be able to teach their peers how to utilize technology to be successful learners in the real world.
