My students are precious little sponges. They soak up everything! With that being said, my students do not always have the opportunity to soak up the knowledge that is needed for them to be successful scholars in the 21st century/digital world. They need more diverse experiences as well as experience with more modern technology. I currently do not have any technology devices in my room for students to use or benefit from. No tablets, student computers, Chromebooks, and no document camera. This classroom is truly behind in this area.
My school is located in one of the most needy areas of Birmingham Alabama.
Most of my students come to school and eat their first meal of the day with me, and 100% of my students receive a free lunch. It is an unreasonable expectation that all of my students are exposed to technology and multi-media learn opportunities at home.
Currently my classroom is in lack of digital and multi-media learning materials. My students do not have computers, tablets, documents cameras, or any other way to work on developing these skills. These iPads will make a huge difference in my classroom because my students will be instantly engaged in technology while working on much needed literacy skills. I plan on downloading apps that will allow students to practice operating skills, work on reading and mathematics, build fluency with technology, and prepare them for the real world. I think this donor's project is the most important element needed in my class. Thank you.
