iUse iPad, iLearn

My students need an iPad and the related accessories (a case, 2 sets of headphones) to use for vocabulary instruction, reading centers, social studies work, and more!

My Students

"Do not confine your children to your own learning, for they were born in another time." - Chinese Proverb

Today's students were born into an ever changing technological society.

They'll hold jobs that don't exist yet and use technology that has not yet been invented. It's my job to prepare them for this unknown future! I teach reading and social studies to two classes of bright, curious, and creative third graders. Their abilities and their needs are as diverse as the countries they represent. My students come from 5 continents, 11 countries, and a spectrum of socioeconomic backgrounds. Behind the red, white and blue Berwyn Heights school uniforms are 52 very different children. There are a few common denominators, though. All of my students love P.E. and Music, and talking to their friends during lunch and recess (never during class! ;-) ). They are all eager to come to school and learn each day. They all have the potential to do amazing things with their skills, and they all deserve the opportunity to reach that potential.

My Project

As 21st century learners, my students are expected to know how to use technology that isn't readily available to them! Common Core State Standards require them to use a variety of technology devices and operating systems when many don't know the basic functions of a desktop computer.Having an iPad will benefit my students in many ways. First and foremost, technology excites them! Students who are excited about their learning gain a stronger foundation of knowledge than those who are not and are able to build upon that foundation as they grow. In addition, iPads are far more engaging than other technology devices because students can manipulate and touch the screen. In my classroom, the iPad will be used at reading centers as a way to reinforce strategies. It will be used for vocabulary instruction with struggling readers and English Language Learners. No matter how it is used, it will give my students a hands-on opportunity to use technology and simultaneously become better readers.

Thank you so much for reading about my students and our need to jump head first into the 21st century.

Your small donation will help excite and empower these 52 future leaders (and their teacher) in ways beyond your imagination!
