Maximizing With A Mini

My students need an iPad to create an additional hands-on digital center for creating and learning.

My Students

My diverse learners are lively and active and full of great ideas which they tell me about frequently! They enjoy being out of their seats, collaborating with their classmates, using their hands to learn, and sharing their ideas and opinions with anyone who will listen. They are at their best when they are engaged in hands-on activities that stretch their thinking. I have found that I have several who are outside-the-box thinkers, and I'm excited to see what the future holds for them!

My Project

Having an additional iPad Mini in our classroom would maximize the use of our digital tools. This iPad would help create an additional digital center to partner with and utilize tools that require the use of an iPad. This tool would also help my students tap into areas that they haven't otherwise been able to explore before now. My students are excited about being able to have a new center to explore and exercise their creativity. I believe in allowing my students to be as creative as their minds lead them to be. We are excited and thankful for what lies ahead!
