My Students

"Education is the movement from darkness to light." -Allan Bloom

My kindergartners are hard-working, motivated, loving five and six year olds.

They live in the highest poverty area with violence surrounding their homes. When they come to school, they are safe and excited to learn. All students at my school receive free lunch. My students used to have technology as part of their prep classes, but due to a budget cut they do not get to use a computer or ipad.

My Project

My students would be so excited if they had the opportunity to use iPads during small groups. It would give them an opportunity to use the iPad to create videos, document their learning, track their progress, and manipulate their own learning. iPads in our classroom would be used not only as a learning tool, but as a discovery tool.

Having iPads with cases would be such a true blessing.

I want to be able to provide my students with as much technology as possible because most of them tell me they do not have computers or tablets at home. I really need to provide my students this change in their lives. Please Help!
