Financial Literacy And Technology

My students need two Ipod Touch players and two cases to enhance learning when teaching about financial literacy.

My Students

The students at my school come from a community where poverty is pervasive.

My students attend a urban elementary school in a lower socioeconomic neighborhood in Louisiana.

Our students are in grades PK through 8th. The majority of them receive free lunch services. We also have a population of homeless students. My students are hard workers, enthusiastic, and enjoy new challenges.

My Project

I am requesting two Ipod Touch devices and two Ipod cases for my students to enhance my students' adventures in becoming financially literate. They will be able to download applications that teach them about money. They will have access to websites that teach them about the importance of a budget and saving money. They will play exciting games to teach them about money.

My students come from a poor community where financial literacy was not taught to their parents.

Teaching my students these skills will have a lifelong impact. It will prepare them for a successful future so that they can help their community and break the cycle of poverty that is prevalent in their family and community.
