Mrs. Lampier from Cedar Hill TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students an Apple iPad to help enrichment and intervention students succeed.
My classroom has 16 wonderfully diverse students who come to school each day eager to learn. Some students are confused about the material presented or find it difficult to stay engaged. My goal is to use technology to help these students learn in their own unique way and at their own pace. Our school is a Title I school with the majority of the students qualifying for free lunches due to high poverty levels. Many of their parents work more than one job and do not have the means, the language knowledge, or the educational ability to support our students' learning at home. Our school is filled with caring educators that nurture all of these beautiful children in ways that extend beyond the classroom. Providing a meal, personal grooming products, clothing, and other student needs to our families is a common occurrence. I am truly blessed to teach at this school with these wonderful, amazing students and teachers.
Imagine that you are a student in a class of 16 and you are either confused about the material being presented or find it difficult to stay engaged because you already have mastered and are proficient in the material being presented. All of my students are capable of high levels of learning and have the ability to be academically successful, but they do not all learn in the same way, at the same time. In order to successfully maximize each child's learning potential in my classroom, it is important to introduce these students that do not fit in the "on grade level" group, collaborative and innovative ways to learn, in their own way, and at their own pace. The iPad will enable technology to take these children into a learning environment that caters to their individual needs. Technology is something special to my students as many do not have any technology available in their homes.
The very large majority of my students have never seen an iPad, much less gotten the opportunity to use one.
Many of my intervention students are ESL students and the iPad will extend beyond the language barrier to assist in their learning. My enrichment students will soar with the unlimited opportunities available through the technological resources available on the iPad. I can't help but smile when I think about the joy on their faces as they use and learn on this iPad.
