My Students

My students are special. They all reside within the city of Detroit. Most of the students are from homes that have an income level below poverty. All of the students at our school receive free breakfast and lunch. A great number of the students are from a single parent home. Students work hard in order to excel. Some of our parents lack parenting skills but they want the best for their children.

My students lack exposure.

Most of them have never been outside of the Detroit area. I would like to provide them with a virtual experience, if possible.

My Project

Provide the students with an opportunity to explore and communicate with other students near and far. Allow the students a chance to experience a cultural exchange.

This will permit the students an opportunity to learn from a global perspective.

They will have the exposure that will activate their knowledge thus permitting them to set higher goals, etc.

The students need information that will permit them to think on a larger scale and apply what's needed to reach their goals. The iPad may also be used as a tool to change their mindset and thin king. They need to know that there is a world outside of their local environment.
