iPad uPad We All Want an iPad!!

My students need an iPad for apps, AR testing, and educational games.

My Students

iPads? When will our class get an iPad. Mrs. ________ class gets to use one all the time. We have no iPads in our classroom. We would love to have an iPad to use with reading and math. Please help us!

I teach at an East Texas high poverty school district.

Most of my students do not have access to the Internet in their homes. Using technology captures their interests and engages them in learning in a fun and interactive manner. We are allowed $160 to spend on supplies for the year and that does not go very far. I have students on reading levels from K-5.

My Project

The iPad can be an effective tool for the elementary student. The student can use the iPad very easily. Choosing an application and getting involved in fun, educational activities can occur within minutes. Students are often not even aware that they are actually learning. It feels more like a game. iPads may be used to help young children with reading readiness, testing and beginning math skills. We can also utilize them with science and social studies content.

Having an iPad in my classroom will make a big difference in the lives of my students.

Many of them have no computers or iPads at home. The students can learn without them, but iPads will provide access to a tool that is not only fun and engaging, but educational as well. This is the first project I have ever attempted on Donors Choose, so I hope it is successful. Thanks for your help.
