My students need a tablet, to store and access data, as well as take pictures and video of their science experiments in the science lab and around campus.
My students need a way to preserve and share their scientific findings even when we are far away from wires and plugs.
My kindergarten through fifth grade students are highly motivated by science.
They love to explore, build, and measure the world around them, and especially to have their good work recognized and preserved through pictures and video. Unfortunately, most times that we pull out the digital camera, we are stymied by quickly drained batteries, inadequate pixel dimension and focal length for the detail we need, and always a lack of time to connect, save and ultimately share the files we have collected.
I need a way for my students to record, edit and publish their findings within a single class period. I have created a web site for my class and need a way to transfer the responsibility of updating our site to my students' small-but-capable shoulders. This tablet will allow us to record data in or outdoors, create graphs, take, edit or publish photos and video, and much more.
I do not want my students to be limited to the role of consumers of the Internet and digital technology.
I want my students to be comfortable creating and sharing their knowledge in a way that stresses the real-life importance of what we do beyond a simple grade at the end of a project.
