Mrs. Williams from Memphis TN is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

iPad For ESL's Learning

My students need an Apple iPad to record themselves reading, complete online school material, and access the internet for research projects.

My Students

I teach ESL at a school where almost all of our students are eligible for free/reduced lunch. My students have a special place in my heart. They love learning and need the tools to aid them. Presently, I share 5 laptops with 3 other ESL Teachers and 60 other students. If my students were able to use an iPad or tablet in class for article reading and research projects, their English language will drastically increase. They would be super excited about learning if they could use tablets to aid in their learning while in my classroom! I am a mother of two and unfortunately am unable to buy tablets for them to use.

My Project

My students will know that others care so much about their education, that they are willing to donate an iPad to the class! In class, the students will be able to view books using iBooks. They will be able to read roadworks articles and other educational articles without destroying the earth.

It is difficult to use technology when several ESL teachers and 100 ESL students share 5 laptops.

If my students had an iPad, they would have a better opportunity to utilize technology. Currently, I have to purchase books with my Macbook for my students to read. It would be more beneficial if I could send information directly from my Macbook to the iPad for them to access.
