Developing 21st Century Skills
My students need 5 tablet computers in order to conduct research for their various projects.
I've heard it said that, "proficiency in 21st century skills is the new civil right of our times." These tablets will help children of all ages develop critical skills that will prepare them to enter college and the workplace.
Our students are outstanding.
Though our school is labeled as moderate to high poverty, students and their families work hard to support each other and others in their community. We have recently begun to implement The Leader In Me program, which is based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, by Sean Covey. It is truly amazing to see young children grasp to these character-building habits and take charge of their own lives. In short, we have a school of superheroes.
It's no secret that money for materials and other things are scarce. These five tablets will be available for teachers to check out on a daily or weekly basis. Access to them will allow students--especially those without home access to the web--to conduct research for their projects or homework. In addition, they can be programmed with different applications to give students extra practice on a given concept.
"It takes a village to raise a child." I believe that getting our elementary students off on the right start is absolutely crucial, and I also believe that it cannot be done alone.
Your help with this project will benefit students for years to come, providing them with the chance to hone the skills that will prepare them for higher education and the workplace. You are strengthening the leaders of tomorrow. Thank you.
