We all know the benefits of getting a quality education. It leads to greater income in the future and allows for a lifetime love of learning. With the addition of a classroom iPad, my students will begin to discover the joy of inquiry and curiosity.
My fifth-graders come from a rural, tight knit community.
Many of their parents grew up together and continue to live in the area. Some of the students I have in my room struggle to bring even basic supplies with them on the first day of school. Many do not have a computer at home or basic Internet access.
A classroom iPad will allow for learners on all levels to be engaged in the lesson. My students will be able to perform in-depth research on topics in science and social studies. We will participate in many projects throughout the year, and the iPad will serve as another tool students can use to complete the assignments.
There is just something intriguing to students about new technology.
When they are able to get their hands on the device, their engagement increases, and they retain so much more information. Donations to this project will vastly improve the education in my classroom.
