I believe that learning made fun is fun and that when students can actively participate with information, they can hold that knowledge forever. That is what an interactive Mimio Pad will help me do in my classroom. It will help to capture knowledge forever.
My first and second grade students live and attend school in a rural area in Southwest Michigan.
My school has a high free-and-reduced lunch rate and many students in attendance don't have opportunities to expand their learning outside of school. For that reason, it is doubly important that I help bring exciting, innovative learning experiences to them. My students love to learn and work hard especially when they get to use technology to do it!
I am requesting an interactive Mimio Pad to use in my classroom. This pad acts like a portable computer mouse and allows students to interact with learning that I project from my computer anywhere in the classroom. This means that we can pass the pad around to allow everyone to participate in learning games on the computer. It will project work onto the board and allow them to write and mark on it with the pen feature, and just generally provide for a more interactive, hands-on, technology atmosphere in my classroom.
This device will empower my students and excite them about interacting with their learning.
When learning is made fun, it is fun. And when students have fun at school, they have a more positive experience, which leads to increased achievement and longevity in their educational lives. Thank you for your consideration in bringing this item to my classroom and helping make my students lifelong lovers of learning!
