iPad Mini For Mrs. B's' Class

My students need an iPad to be able to work collaboratively on projects in the classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Due to budget cuts, there is insufficient building funds to help out with monies to go toward classroom projects.

We are a fourth grade classroom with 31 students and only 4 computers available for student use.

My students have various abilities, and having extra iPads would help in differentiating instruction for all. The iPad would enhance learning opportunities that my students have in the classroom.

My Project

I am wanting to get at least one iPad Mini into my classroom. I would like the 16GB WiFi model for my classroom so that my students can install and use apps that are meaningful to our curriculum. I will be able to use this device with individual students, my whole class, as well as small group instruction.

We are struggling with outdated computers that make it difficult for me to incorporate technology into my curriculum.

Having this iPad in my classroom will help me bring my students into the 21st century through innovative instruction and learning.
