Ms. Fitzpatrick from North Branch MI is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Digital Literacy

My students need to be learning with, through and about technology because it is their future. They need an iPad mini to help them do this.

My Students

Dress like a farmer and drive your tractor to work day, are just two examples of the kind of district that my students are a part of. Located in the thumb of Michigan, the town my district is located in is known for being agriculturally focused. However, many of my families are struggling to put food on the table. We are a Title I school with 42.7% of our population being considered economically disadvantaged. In my classroom, three quarters of my students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.

Overcoming a variety of obstacles just to be ready to learn, my students are resilient.

In my classroom, everyone is an equal no matter where you came from or what you had for dinner. Once at school, my students put all of their boundless energy and focus into their learning -whether it is creating their own books or learning how to read.

My Project

My students will graduate from high school in the year 2030. In the next 12 years, we can't predicate the technology that will be available. It is with this in mind that it is essential for my students to be comfortable not only using technology but also gathering information by using technology.

Digital learners are the future!

My students will use the iPad to listen to non-fiction stories, research animals of interest for our animal project, and then compile their learning in a digital format. These are the skills that my students will be using not only while in school but also in their careers.
