Learning in the Classroom via Technology
My students need an iPad mini, headphones, and cases to make this the best year ever!
Have you ever seen a child who needs individualized help, but feels embarrassed when others know and hear this? With this iPad mini and headphones, I will be able to help students with apps, tutorials and educational projects, all in a confidential way.
I am new to my school this year AND I teach in of the poorest school districts in the state of Texas.
Our school is very small but the kids don't want to be treated like they are from the "sticks"! My students are from very low income families. They face many challenges both inside and away from the classroom. They are living in an era of technology - everywhere but at school. We can't afford the things we need to accomplish the "era of technology." I have been able to witness their creativity and love of learning flourish as they research, organize and create projects in my room. Being new to the district, and it being only my 2nd year teaching - I don't have technology available for hands-on learning. BUT my students want to learn through technology. This project will help me get on the technology road!
Please help fund our need for headphones. You will be providing my students the opportunity to use the iPad mini to research and create projects in the classroom and not be disturbed. Sometimes working by themselves, all the different noises (typing sounds, website music, etc) can distract other students, as well as prevent them from being able to focus on their work/reading. Headphones would provide the students with the ability to thoroughly research their project without becoming distracted or overwhelmed. The use of headphones will help prevent the students from becoming embarrassed by others hearing their tutoring lessons.
The iPad mini is going to make research easily accomplished, and apps for an iPad are so easy to find and use!
The headphones will allow my students the opportunity to conduct research, as well as receive online tutoring, without the fear of other students hearing what they are working on. This will also prevent other students from becoming distracted by the work of others in the classroom. With these new resources I KNOW the students in my new school are going to have a GREAT year.
