Mr. Dickerson from San Antonio TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Theatre Tech Pros Need an iPad Pro!

My students need an iPad and case to use for our theatrical productions, rehearsals, timing cues, and running a 3D app to help design our stage set.

My Students

The students in my fine arts classroom consist of Pre-K through fifth graders. My students have the energy and enthusiasm to explore and create but are lacking the supplies to make their ideas come alive. The community my students come from is primarily low income, and 100% of them receive free breakfast and lunch. These students do not have the much-needed supplies or resources they need to succeed, especially in the fine arts. They have virtually no experience or exposure to any arts at home, whether it be art, theater, or even music.

My Project

My theatre tech students currently use the basic iPad to run all sound for our theatre productions, rehearsals, etc. They set musical cues, determine the timing for scene changes, and help create props out of recycled materials. Lately, we have run into problems with lack of space on the tablet. We are not able to save any more music on it due to it having only a limited drive. With an iPad Pro my students would not only have a larger workspace, but also have a larger drive to save all the music, videos, photos, and production notes that we need to put our shows on. It would allow for faster uploads of files, being a newer version, and a battery that doesn't die on us, our current one has to be plugged in at all times. We would use this iPad to play the music for our weekly rehearsals with our drama team of 70 students. We would also like to use it to create a 3D diagram of our stage, allow us to enter measurements of our space and determine what types of set pieces would fit. The use of this iPad would enhance the Math and Science aspects that go into their tech positions by allowing them to run the 3D design app that currently is too big for our old tablet. Our productions, every year, seek to enhance a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) curriculum.
