Mrs. Teagarden from Tampa FL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

iPads in the Classroom: Putting the Tech in our Teach!

My students need these iPads so that we can create a flexible and interesting learning environment. These iPads are capable of supporting all subjects and will develop students' research and inquiry skills.

My Students

My classroom is made up of 31 unique, silly, creative, and loving little 3rd graders. They come from a wide range of backgrounds, some from low income homes and some from high income homes. Our unique mix of kids creates a diverse learning environment that requires a lot of differentiation.

Despite these differences, my kids all LOVE to learn.

My students do their best learning when I can incorporate collaborative learning projects and they can work together. By creating a variety of activities and as much class discussion as possible, these kids have learned to respect and support each other. I hope by including a wider range of technology into my classroom, I can help these kids develop real-world technology skills that will help them as they continue through their school years.

My Project

These iPads will improve my students' learning by allowing them to explore topics of interest on familiar and user-friendly technology. Our classroom with 31 students has little room for large desktops, so these tablets will allow students to incorporate technology in a space-efficient way.

These iPads will help me incorporate real-world examples of learning into every lesson, creating interest and sparking new ideas.

They will allow my students to apply learning in math by creating maps of our classroom using area and perimeter. They will help students apply science skills by being able to research questions about our school gardens and solve pest problems. They will help students become better readers and writers by practicing phonics skills and exploring digital libraries.

These iPads would be an invaluable resource in my classroom and would encourage students to apply new skills with an exciting, cool, and modern technology.
