Mr. Alicea from Pflugerville TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Level-up with Knowledge in the Digital Age!

Help me give my students the opportunity to access digital math and reading resources on a daily basis with an iPad, along with the ability to learn through differentiated and interactive activities.

My Students

In my classroom, literacy and technology go hand in hand with my students' academic learning experiences. I believe that providing children the access to literature through a variety of digital platforms will elevate their desire to learn and improve their reading and writing skills on a daily basis.

As a Dual Language reading and math interventionist, I work with Kindergarten-5th grade students on a daily basis.

The goal of a dual language program is for students to become bilingual and bi-literate individuals.

My Project

I've utilized technology integration in my classroom for the past 17 years. Whether it was with one semi-working desktop computer or a 1:1 student computing environment, my students have always been provided with opportunities to connect literacy with technology.

As a Dual Language Reading/Math Interventionist, I would like to continue to provide my students with ongoing technological opportunities, as they continue to "level-up" on their literacy

skills. Currently, I have access to only two iPads in my classroom (one of which is an iPad 2). My students use iPads regularly to access a multitude of Spanish-language literature and applications such as Nearpod and Google Classroom. An additional iPad will provide my classroom environment with more opportunities to enhance their academic learning.
