From Tablets to Tablets

My students need four Kindle Fire HD tablets with four cases and four headphones to reinforce skills needed through the use of technology.

My Students

Imagine being a part of a world where you hear other children talking about a Kindle Fire and you know you can only dream of one because your parent or guardian is struggling just to provide you with the bare necessities. This is the world most of my students live in.

I am a kindergarten teacher at an elementary school in Southeast Louisiana.

Our school is located in a high poverty community and 90% of our students receive free lunch. Currently there are 21 students in my class. There are eleven African Americans, two Hispanics, five Caucasians, one Native American and two bi-racial students. Many of these students live in single-parent households with high poverty rates. Often, single parent households lack the educational ability to provide academic assistance to children. Most of my students are not offered the opportunity to use and understand technology at home because they lack access to technology. In addition, money for technology at our school is limited and has been spent for this school year. I believe my students can expand their knowledge and use of technology to enhance their learning in the classroom. Without the integration of technology my student will not be able to compete in the global society.

My Project

It is my intention to use the Kindle Fires to deepen and extend literacy and numeracy centers in my classroom through the use of technology. I will use these tablets to help my students gain technical knowledge and skills and also to fuel student learning through engaging activities on these tablets. By using the Kindle Fire students will be provided differentiated learning opportunities that will: 1. Build technical skills 2. Help them become problem solvers 3. Improve literacy and numeracy skills 4. Make learning fun

The Kindle Fire will be an ideal addition to my classroom because it will provide my students with hands-on technical experience.

Outside of the classroom most of my students have very limited access to technology, and because of the limited funds in our school budget we are not able to provide our students with the much-needed technology.
