iPads Increase Student Motivation And Learning!

My students need an iPad to enhance their learning process!

My Students

In today's technology driven times, students are very motivated to learn when using technology! Students get very excited when using technology to help their learning.

I teach at a school that is high-needs in an urban setting.

100% of the students are economically disadvantaged and receive free lunch and breakfast. Our student population is a very motivated, well-behaved group of students. In fact, we were named the school with the best school climate in our region!

My Project

We need to prepare students to enter into a technology driven world. Sadly, most of our technology is over 5 years old. iPads will help students in numerous ways. First, my students are struggling in reading and math. Therefore, when they're tested to determine what they know, we are falling well below the average. iPads will offer the accessibility to various programs to increase levels and in turn increase test performance. Secondly, it is a technologically driven world and we are expected to teach in the 21st century with 18th century tools. iPads added to the technology program at our school will help students improve their technology skills. The iPads can be used help create educational and public service movies by using programs such as iMovie and Photo Booth. In recent years our students have placed 2nd and 4th place in our regional computer fair in the category of digital movies. With the use of iPads and the programs on it, we could even work towards a 1st place win!

Your donation will make a huge impact on our students' education and lives.

Technology is only growing and expanding. We need to keep pace with its growth so our students can be competitive with their surrounding suburban counterparts.
