Help Me Create an Interactive Whiteboard

My students need an iPad mini with a protective case to allow them to move objects on the board from their seats.

My Students

Technology is such an important part of students lives today. I want to give my students all the exposure I can to different types and uses for technology. An iPad mini would allow my students to interact with the white board from their seats.

I teach kindergarten at a Title one school.

Title one means that the majority of the school qualifies for free or reduced lunch. If parents do not have enough money to pay for lunch, they more than likely do not have enough money to provide their child with the latest technology out there.

My Project

You may have heard of a smart board. My school uses a mimio for an interactive white board. The mimio comes with a pen that does not always work correctly. Plus parts of my whiteboard is a little high for some of the Kindergarteners to reach, even with a step stool. Having an iPad mini would allow the students to use the interactive white board from their seats, so as not too worry if they can reach everything uses the mimio pen. It will also allow my class to have the Internet at our fingertips when we are one the carpet for learning. Kindergarteners are not afraid to ask questions and when they do, I would be able to pull up a picture quickly using the iPad, rather than waiting till we go back to their seats so I can show them on my computer. It will provide learning at their fingertips.

Florida schools are moving to all Online text books in the near future.

By exposing the students in kindergarten as to how to use a tablet, they will be ready for when that change comes. They will be on a level playing field as their peers in more affluent schools.
