It's Time for the Students to Receive an Apple

Help me give my students access to technology and a hands-on experience.

My Students

My class is composed of students that have emotional disabilities. For this reason, they are sometimes unable to participate with their peers and take advantage of the activities their peers have access to. Their disabilities do not stop them from enjoying learning and they love to do hands-on activities. The students range from first to sixth grade.

When students are engaged, they learn.

Given them access to an Apple TV is a sure fire way to engage with them and give them the tools to grow into the type of students that can be. With a good foundation, they can grow into students who will be successful in the future.

My Project

The Apple TV I am requesting for my class will allow the students to have technology at their fingertips and be hands on. I only have one iPad and the Apple TV will allow all the students to be hands-on. Since I don't have the funds to get more iPads, the Apple TV is the next best choice.

With this device, the students will be able to interact as I walk around the class.

By doing this, the students can see what they are doing and what their peers are doing as well. They will also be encouraged by the use of an iPad.
