iPad, iPad, We All Win With An iPad!

My students need 1 iPad to do online math programs for more hands-on practice.

My Students

iPad! iPad! We all want an iPad! Don't you think technology is important in the classroom? We need technology, such as an iPad, in the classroom because the students are very motivated, captivated and thrilled by them! The possibilities for integrating an iPad in the classroom are never ending.

I work in a school in a rural E.

Texas, socioeconomically disadvantaged school. I teach 7th grade Math to all levels of students. Many of the classroom supplies, manipulatives, and games are handmade to accommodate learning in a visual way. Some of my students are focused and have dreams bigger than we did in Jr. High, but some are hard to get focused on the importance of Math in their lives. I hope that I can supply them with the tools they need to be successful, not only in Jr High, but also in high school and college. This iPad will help me get them ALL enthused about Math and learning for a lifetime!

My Project

Our class is requesting one iPad. You might think one iPad can't make a difference, but it can. With one iPad, I can use applications to challenge the "math genius" and reinforce a struggling student's skills as well. There are SO many Apps to use! An iPad can also inspire the student who doesn't excel or struggle to go one step further than before. This iPad is for every student. My students will be able to make videos about math concepts. We will be able to document their work and share it with others. An iPad in our classroom will open many doors.

An iPad can make a difference in our classroom.

My students will be excited to learn math with your generosity. We will be able to use different Apps, use our state supplied program, Think Through Math, and be as creative as their "mind's eye" will allow! An iPad will improve my instruction and create unique learning opportunities for my students on a daily basis. Please help us be the BEST we can be!
