Making Art with iPods

My students need 2 Ipods.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am the visual arts teacher in a rural elementary school, housing grades kindergarten through fifth. Many of my students come from low-income families, where arts and technology experiences in the home are extremely limited. I recently read an article about an art teacher who used iPods in her classroom. I would love to be able to share this technology with my students. In order to reach students with different learning modalities, I can create different art centers. The iPods will be used to allow students to listen to art songs. For example, when studying a certain artist, different stations or centers will be created--a computer station for exploring a website, a drama station for acting out an artwork, an iPod station for listening to an art song and discussing the meaning of the lyrics, a reading station, and a critique station. What a wonderful way to reach all of the students while at the same time, exposing students to technology they may have never experienced!! I would also like to use the ipods as a type of reward for my 5th grade classes. Each week, during independent work, 2 students will be chosen based on behavior and work ethic to listen to the Ipods as they work. I think this will really motivate my 5th graders to work harder. Will you bring Ipods to my art classroom? This is a piece of technology that will be greatly used (and appreciated)! Thank you for reading my proposal.
