Learning at the Touch of your Fingers

My Students

Help open the world to eager young minds! My students yearn to understand the social and environmental justice issues the world faces today. Our resources are limited and this leaves my students at a disadvantage when developing their understanding of the world around them.

My students are sixth grade English Language Learners.

Their curiosity and hunger for knowledge is tremendous. The majority of my students learn best through hands-on applications of the curriculum standards. They are social, enjoy working in group activities, and are excited about using technology to facilitate their learning. They attend an inner city school where they face real life challenges in the community.

My Project

I am requesting two Apple iPad Smart Tablets. These tablets will allow my students to access the world wide web for educational information such as current events and historical dates and to access an endless number of books. I feel that having these tablets for the classroom will broaden the minds of the students and teach them about using technology as a source of learning. Using the tablets will help prepare the students on how to integrate technology into their everyday lives. My students are always conducting research projects which call for using resources such as the Internet for vital information.

Please help my students hold the World Wide Web in the palm of their hands.

We are constantly learning and expanding our minds. With the right tools, we can help students reach their full potential in the learning the process. In the words of Clay P. Bedford, "You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives." So, please help by donating towards our goal of obtaining 2 tablets.

Grades 6-8
