iPad Mini for Increased Learning Opportunities
My students need access to technology (two mini iPads, the cases, headphones and headphone splitters) in the classroom to keep up with the technological world we live in.
I am preparing my students for life in a tech savvy world. In order to prepare them, they need access to technology.
I teach 120 energetic 5th graders.
They are so eager to learn, especially when they can use technology. Put them in front of a computer or a mini iPad and suddenly the curriculum is much more engaging. Over 55% of the students in our school qualify for free or reduced price lunches. Many of the students are coming from low socio-economic backgrounds and don't have access to technology at home.
I have requested two mini iPads, the cases, headphones and headphone splitters. I've also requested an external hard drive. Our school has limited space which does not allow me to download all the educational projects, lessons, and web-based activities for students to enhance their learning.
I have so many plans on how to engage the students with the iPads. Students who finish their work early can use the iPad for enrichment work. Students who are slower learners will be able to access learning apps that fit their needs and are on their own individual levels. Reluctant learners who are frustrated with school or have given up are more likely to re-engage with something that peaks their interest like an iPad. I'm also excited to have pairs of students use the iPads for group projects and presentations. There are so many educational apps that the students will be able to use and learn from that they would not have access to without these iPads.
Even though I'm only requesting 2 mini iPads, they will have a big impact.
I envision them being used on a daily basis. Students throughout the year will use them and can really take their learning to a whole new level.
