Mrs. McKenna from Katy TX is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Protect Our iPad!

My students need accessories to help our classroom better utilize the iPad purchased for classroom, including cords, adapters, doc cam, and protective case.

My Students

My students are curious, intuitive, and avid learners. They crave answers to their questions and always want to learn and explore beyond the parameters of our curriculum.

My students challenge me every day to create new and innovative ways to present information as well as discover their own answers.

Through the use of the iPad, my students will be able to work independently, or with partner groups, to manipulate, create and discover answers to problems posed by the teacher using both games and apps.

My Project

In the classroom setting I will be better able to instruct students in using their own devices through the use of the overhead projector and iPad combination through Project Based Learning. I will also be better able to allow students access to the iPad to guide their own learning without worry of an unprotected device. My students need accessories to help our classroom better utilize the iPad purchased for classroom, including cords, adapters, doc cam, and protective case.

By supporting my classroom project, you will be inspiring my students to learn and explore through the use of the latest and greatest technology as well as help me to better manage classroom behaviors and individualized lessons.

Please consider helping us learn outside the box of our classroom!
