Ms. Weiss from Chicago IL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning Science Through Technology and Movement

My students need an iPad to be able to use apps to correct proper form of physics when throwing a ball or in movement patterns. Students will also be able to learn about the human body.

My Students

My school is located in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago and has roughly six hundred and fifty students. As a physical education & science teacher teaching at a school that is 94% Hispanic and 98% low income, I know that my students face statistical challenges as a population having one of the highest obesity rates in the country!

They don't have the same resources and technology available to them as many other students from better funded schools, yet we live in a society where technology is becoming more omnipresent.

Unfortunately our budget is $250 and we can't purchase technology with that money. These kids need the opportunities and tools to succeed in today's society.

My Project

An iPad will make a huge difference in my class because it will allow students to see the science behind the human body and movement. How we move and the way we move makes an impact on our bodies. If we move incorrectly we can cause our body harm not only in the short term but in the long term as well. Students will be able to do research linking science and movement and relate physics components.

The students will assess a movement pattern on the ipad record it and analyze it.

The students will break down the skill into how that movement impacts the human body. What muscles are being used for the movement? How are they affected? What happened to that muscle when it is repetitively activated?
