My Students

"We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher's hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world." ~David Warlick

My students crave knowledge.

They want to spend time exploring, researching, seeking information, and playing educational games. Their young, growing minds are inquisitive and eager to learn. They love going to computer lab during our weekly visit and would benefit from more access to technology throughout the school week.

My Project

My students will gain more individual time throughout the week with these iPad Minis in their hands researching science and social studies topics studied in the classroom. They will be able to share and discuss their research with their peers. Students will also be able to play math games to support and enhance math curriculum, all the while increasing their technology skills. Students will also be able to access more books by using the iPad Minis as e-readers.

By donating to this project, students will have more individual time using technology in the areas of math, science, and social studies.

They will be able to explore, question, research, and seek answers. They will play games to practice and reinforce curriculum. iPad Minis will motivate and encourage students to continue to learn using technology.
