Mrs. Holden from Springville UT is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Osmo Kits to Develop Critical Thinking and Reasoning Skills

My students need another iPad and two Osmo Genius Kits to help them explore technology and thinking skills through partner play opportunities. They will use these during independent center time in their classroom.

My Students

Students need to be able to learn through play and discovery every day. The future will be filled with technology and we need to make our classrooms a rich environment filled with technology.

I believe that the more positive exposure students have to various technology and games, the more they are able to progress in the love of learning.

Our school has a mix of low and high-income families. Many rent their home or apartment and more than half qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Many of my students do not have access to technology or internet at home. Many of them have told me that they have never played on a tablet before coming to my classroom.

My Project

Many of the games that children play on technology are individual and application based. We currently have one iPad in our classroom and need to have more available for students to use.

Through the use of an additional iPad and two Osmo Genius Kits, the students will be able to use the technology with partners to manipulate learning tools and enrich their learning together.

Students will learn cooperative skills with others while enhancing their critical thinking and problem solving skills. They will be able to advance their technology skills and transfer their learning to have a deeper level of knowledge in core areas.
