Mrs. McGinnis from Gold Beach OR is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Connect My Students To The Future With Technology!

My students need tablets so they can readily access the technology components of our language arts and math curriculum. The RCA Viking Pro 10" 2-in-1 tablet is the best bang for your buck!!

My Students

I teach fourth graders in a small rural community located on the coast of Oregon. Despite living in a fairly isolated area I often have a diverse group of students every year that inspire me to keep on learning better ways to teach them. What I love most about fourth graders is that they are still curious and eager to learn, yet keep me on my toes. They are old enough to start taking on more responsibility for their learning, but young enough to still yearn for adult approval. They keep me smiling with their spontaneous personalities and sense of humor.

My Project

"If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow." --John Dewey

Technology integration in the classroom connects students to the world and prepares them for the future.

It gives students a chance to get actively involved in their learning. I chose the RC Viking Pro 2-in-1 tablet because I want to enhance learning and engage students at a higher level, but not break the bank.

We have new curriculum in language arts and math and my students are unable to readily access the technology components because we do not have consistent access to technology. Sometimes I feel like I'm teaching in the ways of the past! Please help catapult our classroom into the 21st century!

I teach between 20-30 fourth graders each year. These first 15 tablets will get us started towards our goal of 1 tablet per student. My next step will be to get the students involved in raising funds for another 10. I'm hoping these first 15 get them excited and motivated to earn the rest!
