My students need tablets to enrich lessons and individualize learning throughout the day but, ONE tablet will at least expose them to the amazing things you can do!

Technology has become such a part of our everyday lives that sometimes we take it for granted. Unfortunately for many of my students that is not yet the case. Technology is more than the filmstrips we used to watch in school. It has become as vital as pencil and paper and I feel like my students are not only missing out but falling behind.
My students are a wonderful group of kids.
I hesitate to say we are an "inner city school" because I know the kind of images that puts in people's minds. They are great kids like in any other school but, they face challenges and do not have some of the advantages other kids may have. I just want to prepare them the best that I can for the world that we currently live in.
A tablet would be a great addition to our classroom for lesson enrichment, individual assessments, and independent review. Our school has wonderful reading and math programs available for the students to do online but unfortunately we do not have the resources to give all of our students consisted access to these tools.
I went to the museum a couple of years ago with my then 4 year old son.
When we approached a monitor showing a video he quickly proclaimed, "Mom this one is broken." I wondered why he would say that until I looked at his fingers tapping on the screen and his confused face when nothing would happen.
