Mrs. Stephens from Novato CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Today's Learners Become Tomorrow's Leaders!

My Students

Can you imagine a classroom full of students using only one book, one pencil, or one piece of paper? This is how my students feel as they try to share one iPad to access our new online educational curriculum.

As a public elementary school in California, funding for technology is scarce.

My second graders are excited about using technology to learn. They can't wait to visit our class website with all the educational resources it has to offer. Our class currently has one iPad, and would benefit tremendously from the donation of five more for the students to use.

My Project

Now, imagine a classroom with students engaged and learning through the use of iPads. My students could easily access educational websites and resources wirelessly while sitting at their desks in small groups. Rather than just watching a demonstration, all students could participate in using the technology to access the online curriculum!

It is essential that we prepare our students for the digital demands of the 21st century.

We must provide our students with the tools necessary to accomplish this. By donating five iPads to our classroom, you will be helping my students to develop the technology skills necessary to be competitive in a global community, and become the digitally wise leaders of tomorrow.
