My students need the Samsung tablets to do all the things that will help them become successful in this 21st century learning environment and to move the math classroom to paperless!
My high school math classroom is a place of real-world applications and discovery. Students spend the year learning math and also applying it to real world situations in every unit. They take these valuable skills into the real world with a appreciation of the value of math as a tool in the world after high school.
The students are 9th-12th graders from a small town in Idaho.
They are often less than excited to explore the world of math. Through modernizing the classroom with interactive real world lessons and a goal to go paperless via electronic devices their attention and the the environment will both be enhanced. They take pride in their efforts and are willing to challenge their minds for the sake of learning.
The use of whiteboards and guided notes in a composition notebook is a daily activity in my math classroom. Using the interactive notes in math, students sit in their desks with whiteboards for guided practice and to record modeled strategies. The whiteboards allow me to see exactly what they are doing, as well as provide an easy place for them to show and share their work. The interactive notebooks allow them to take notes and retain what they are learning so they can continue their practice at home. Our textbooks are 10 years old. What becomes a problem is the fact that the markers never last, erasers seem to disappear, and the whiteboards become stained and scratched from frequent use. Often, students must walk through the class quietly to get a new marker, new eraser, or the last choice, pencil and paper. Even though they are great about doing this, it is distracting for many of my students who have focusing issues and they miss important instruction form either myself or other students. The notebooks are great but take so so much paper. By having a class set of tablets, students will be able to avoid all of these problems and focus on increasing their learning! And we can save the environment.
By donating to our project, you will not only help the environment, and help improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand, and not whether their materials are going to work or not. Plus in this technology literate world, any interaction with updated technology will increase their literacy as well as their desire to learn and see the application of high school info in the world.
