Mrs. Kirchhoff from New Braunfels TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

iMake Endless Possibilities in a Techie World

My students need Apple iPads to complete projects in our technology maker space station.

  • $2,090 goal

This project expired on June 21, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are a mix of Spanish language learners and English language learners in a dual language class at a Title 1 school. These students learn from each other and work diligently in the classroom to learn both languages. They come in everyday eager and ready to learn.

Several of my students are gifted students who thrive on new knowledge and exciting educational projects.

Due to lack of funds we are very limited in our technology. We have a few computers in our classroom, but our kids are expected to put in minutes on required district programs. These required programs limit our use of our computers for creative technology tool exploration and innovative projects.

My Project

My students will be using the iPads in a Digital Makerspace Station. Many of my students are gifted students who work above and beyond what is expected of them.

They are eager and willing to learn and technology is the next step for these kids.

The Makerspace Station will allow my students to explore digital tools while creating projects using a design process. We can incorporate the use of the iPads into all of the academic areas to make digital books, comics, crosswords using our vocabulary or spelling words, animated stories and diagrams to name a few. The iPads in our classroom will give my students the opportunity to reach further into the technology world of today.
