My Students

Imagine a classroom where information is right at your fingertips.

My students are a diverse group from many backgrounds.

Our classroom represents students and families from around the globe who are eager to learn and succeed. Many are English Language Learners and may be the only one in their household who speaks English. They are inquisitive and love to interact with each other and the world around them.

My Project

With an iPad in the classroom my students will have information at their fingertips. We will be able to have interaction with classrooms in other parts of the country who are studying similar themes. They will be able to create projects and presentations that reflect their learning to share with classmates as well as go deeper into research and investigation. Having a iPad in the classroom will give the chance for added student interaction and depth in instruction.

This donation will help motivate my students to look deeper into the questions they have and the themes we are investigating.

They will be excited about topics because of the interaction this technology makes possible.
