My students need 2 tablets to perform routine research, create electronic projects and will be used as a visual aid to assist students in learning science.
Science and technology are driving our economy and will continue to do so in the future! My students struggle to learn science and technology due to limited funds that restrict the purchase of tablets. The students possess the drive and desire to learn, but are limited because of technology exposure
I teach students in a medium sized city in Connecticut.
We are a school district that has made significant growth with all of our students, but we are still failing. The student body is 90% minority with 78% receiving free or reduced lunch. Approximately 27% of students receive support services, and a large percentage of that population are English Language Learners. Current budgetary constraints prevent purchase of technology for all of these learners. The majority of these students enjoy coming to school and learning science, but do not have the same opportunities as the more affluent districts. The struggling learners continue to have the need for technology that is constantly changing.
Technology is an integral part of all of our lives and students are no exception. Students will greatly benefit from the technology with so many learning experiences related to science, technology, engineering and math. I will incorporate technology such as virtual field trips, webquests and social media into the curriculum to support content that is typically taught with traditional strategies such as sketching, labeling, classifying, using graphic organizers and culminating projects. The technology will also be used for everything from advanced research to spanish-english translations. This technology, and the skills that will be obtained from its use, is invaluable to teaching STEM to students in the US while improving 21st century skills.

No mind should go untapped. Every student in the US should have an opportunity to learn to his or her potential. This project will make a difference to all of the science students throughout my school. Exposure to this technology will engage learner and allow them to work to their potential just as other school districts.Read More
