My Students

My students are hard working individuals and I want to give them another tool to succeed in school! Each day they walk in the door I can tell they are happy to be here and ready to learn. Some students are not able to use technology at home because of financial issues. I want to make it possible for those students to use more technology and grow in school. I want these iPads for my class because they will help excite students even more about learning. My school has over 650 students so its hard for teachers to get technology when needed. I also struggle to check out technology because leaving my classroom to check it out is never an easy task. I want make sure iPads are more accessible for my class to use each day. Please help!

My Project

My students will use these tablets throughout the day to improve their reading and math skills. Using technology makes learning fun and my kids never have enough materials to go around. There are always more kids wanting to use tablets and even fighting to be on these educational websites. I want to empower as many students as possible to use these new tablets.

My project will improve my classroom because it will enable students to use technology more in class each day.

It is often hard to do this because I don't have enough computers/iPads for my kids to use during the day. In order for my kids to grow in reading and math the school has purchased educational websites for my kids to use

(Moby Max and Epic = Reading, Moby Max = Math). I want a larger number of my kids to use these educational websites more often so they can succeed! Please help me make this happen!

iPads will help my students be more excited about their continued learning. These tablets will also help in small groups to keep students engaged while I work with other groups of students. Technology is a great tool to motivate students to learn. My goal is to make sure each of my students show a lot of growth this year in all subject areas. I believe the iPads will become a huge factor in their continued success! Please help!
