Help me give my students iPads to put the technology in their hands so I can teach them the way they learn best.

My Students

My first grade students come to school excited to learn and always asking, "What are we going to do next?" I love their enthusiasm and love for learning! They are like little sponges soaking up everything they can. My classroom is a very hands-on classroom. I believe that children must "do to learn". Many children in my classroom have a hard time sitting in regular classroom chairs. As adults, we ourselves have a hard time sitting in a hard chair all day long. I once saw a quote that says,

"If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn." I believe if we gave them seats in which they could move around, they'd be able to concentrate more on their work.

Unfortunately, this past year many students were affected by Hurricane Harvey. However, my students still came to school, in the face of adversity, ready to learn.

My Project

Our students need iPads to increase 21st century skills related to the use of technology and enhance their knowledge and skills in real-life situations such as researching, collaborating, and presenting. This task of infusing technology effectively into the classroom can be challenging; however, with the passion and motivation of our students, I can guarantee a seamless transition from a costly paper-filled classroom to a student-directed, instant feedback learning environment. Our students work very hard on applying their weekly hands-on learning activities within their technology application rotations. They are using apps and our new online program to work on reading and math skills. By donating to this project, you are helping students of low-income families have technology at their fingertips.
