iPad For The Classroom

My students need 1 iPad to access technology within the classroom.

My Students

At least once a day, you will find my whole class actively engaged in reading, math and even physical education via technology. Every day I connect my iPad or laptop to our projector to instruct my students on sight words, math skills and even Zumba.

The majority of my students are second language learners from low socio-economic homes.

Most of my students do not have computers, tablets or iPads. The very few that do, don't have Internet. My students are eager to learn, they LOVE school and love the 30 minutes a week we have in our computer lab. However that isn't enough time; by the time I get everyone logged on, it is time to leave.

My Project

I am requesting 1 iPad for the classroom. Having an iPad in the classroom will allow my students the opportunity to use apps specifically created to help develop reading and math skills. Our school uses a computer program to help with beginning reading skills. Having an iPad in the classroom would give students the opportunity to access the program throughout the day rather than waiting for their weekly computer lab time. I have seen first-hand how students can use technology in the classroom. I often bring my own laptop and iPad in for students to use. Connecting my iPad to the projector, I am able to share learning videos, music and much more with my entire class. We have recently begun to use QR Codes in our classroom; an iPad would allow us to use this type of technology even more. Having a dedicated classroom iPad would give my students the ability to access technology and multimedia all day long.

By giving my students an early start with technology, they will be better prepared as they move through the grades with the knowledge they need to receive the full benefits computers, tablets and technology in general has to offer.
