Owls on the Hunt for Technology

My students need a Toshiba Thrive Tablet to use as a powerful resource and an engaging tool in the classroom.

My Students

I would like to prepare my students for the growing demands of our technological world and also motivate them through technology in their learning experience. Our classroom currently has an outdated desktop and laptop for 25 students to share.

My students are very eager and enthusiastic to come to school each day to learn, and what better way to learn than through technology?

Many of my students' families do not have a computer at home. So, it is up to me to as their teacher to help provide them with the experience of current technology to make their learning more meaningful, powerful, and fun!

My Project

The students will truly benefit from the tablet because they can play educational learning games, practice their reading, writing, and math skills, do report searches for science and social studies. We currently have a Peace First program and I would love to show videos that promote peace making skills and anti-bullying strategies. There is an endless amount of power and wealth that the tablet holds for my students to gain from.

My students need peacemaking and up to date technology skills in order for them to be positive and productive citizens.

As a teacher, I would love to help and provide any way I can to make it possible for ALL my students to reach their fullest potential and be successful throughout their educational journey.
