Mrs. Plover from Philadelphia PA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

iPads for Movies Makers

My students need four iPads and cases to create LEGO brick movies.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

In my computer lab, students are building higher level thinking skills when they have a chance to create, design, navigate, and collaborate with the use of technology. I teach digital literacy in an urban Kindergarten through 5th grade school.

Our school is located in an area of high poverty.

We receive Title I Funding, and my students receive free breakfast and lunch to ensure that they have a meal to eat. For many of my students, school is the only place where they have hands-on experience with technology.

My Project

My amazing students just featured their digital art in our city's technology showcase and competition. In fact, our students swept the elementary digital art category by winning first, second and third place! I'm so proud of their hard work and their achievements. What makes me even prouder is that they already are thinking of their projects for next school year!

My students have decided that for next school year, they would like to delve into the world of LEGO movies for our city's technology showcase and competition!

Hence, I am requesting four iPads and cases so that they can begin creating stop motion movies using the camera and apps on the iPads. We have 1 iPad currently but to allow for more student groups to work at one time, a few more would be helpful!

With these iPads and the LEGO sets and LEGO mini-figures that have been already funded through DonorsChoose, my students will be able to make their storyboards come to life!
