Enchanted Learners Need Technology

My students need a classroom iPad and case to learn technological strategies that will benefit them in the classroom and throughout their life.

My Students

"[Technology] is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world," David Warlick said. In our society, it is important to show children how to use modern resources. Not only will it benefit them educationally, it will be a memorable experience.

My wonderful students attend an Environmental Science Magnet School with our fourth grade focus being oceans.

Because this is a Title I school (most of the students are economically disadvantaged) students do not always have computers, Internet, or even televisions in their households. Nonetheless, my students are always eager to learn and try new things.

My Project

With a classroom iPad, my students will learn technological strategies that will benefit them in the classroom and throughout their life. We will be using the iPad in a variety of ways; from it being in a reading/listening center to using Skype with an oceanographer. Because 4th grade is the year for writing, my students will be using the iPad to create, edit, and publish their own stories. The iPad can also be incorporated in many math workstations. The possibilities are endless.

In a world driven by cutting-edge ideas, we should be exposing our children to things they will encounter later in life.

What better way than to introduce it through education in the classroom?
