My students need iPads to access online curriculum, extra practice websites, and to be able to conduct research.

My Students

Our school is located in a rural area that has a mixture of socioeconomic statuses. Our school is small and overcrowded so we only have K-4 graders. 41% of our students are on free and reduced lunch. Many students come to school at 7 am and stay until 6 pm daily so their parents can work.

My class is physically the smallest 4th-grade classroom, but I have just as many students as the other four 4th grade teachers.

The students and I work together to make this small room as functional as possible so we can have carpet time, independent workspace, and space around the room to work in groups.

My Project

My students are currently trying to use MacBook Laptops from 2009 (the white ones) and 1st generation iPod Touches. The laptops have been an amazing addition to our classroom, but they only function if plugged directly into an outlet. The iPod Touches are so old that we can't download any current apps and they don't have cameras.

With a new iPad, students will be able to practice their skills through the use of current apps and websites that come with our curriculum, as well as take pictures for projects.

Students will use it daily as extension activities and/or remediation during rotations. New, working technology is a must in this day and age!
