Help Build our Love of Learning Through Technology

My students need access to tablets and a variety of technology in order to build their love of reading, learning, and to be prepared for college and careers!

My Students

Many of my students have limited access to computers and other technology outside of school. In order to become successful learners today and productive college students in the future, they need exposure to technology and interactive learning. These tablets are a great way to bridge that gap!

Our scholars come from a low-income, urban community with minimal access to computers and tablet technology in their homes and local community.

With approximately 90% of our students on free or reduced lunch, it's our duty as teachers to ensure they have access to the tools that will lead them to success in school, college, and career. My students are passionate, excited, eager learners who love new experiences, especially when it comes to new technology!

My Project

The Kindle Fire provides interactive games and activities through the use of an easy to use and durable tablet. Students in my classroom will be able to use these tools to learn, practice, and enjoy math and reading skills. We will use these tablets to access all kinds of interactive learning opportunities! We will read books, research topics of interest, play learning games, and build our excitement about learning new things. The kids edition also includes excellent parental controls, so I'll be able to ensure that my scholars are learning AND being safe while using these devices.

Donations to this project will lead our 2nd graders to greater success through experience and mastery of tablet technology, while practicing essential academic skills.

Success in today's schools, colleges, and jobs is contingent on experience with and understanding of computers and related technology. By gaining exposure and understanding now, my students will be ready to succeed!
