My Students

I teach in a rural Wisconsin school. We have about 300 students in our school. Our school is a k-12 building where our students have the opportunity to interact with students of all different ages and abilities.

Our district prides itself in helping each child to reach their greatest potential while they are with us.

We like to make sure we have different types of learning available to all of our students. Each student is an individual, not a "one size fits all." We have students who love to do projects, and others who would rather do paper/pencil work. We try to cater to all students learning.

My Project

In our district we are blessed with being one to one iPads for the students in grades 2-12. However, the systems they currently have to store out devices is anything but safe and user friendly. Please help us change this.

"Please help me, my iPad is not charged." This is the sentence I hear on a daily basis.

The current system we use as a charging station is not working. The cords are a tangled mess and the plug ins don't hold the chargers tightly. Therefore the iPads are not charging. This makes it difficult for the students to do their daily work then. Much of the students work is assigned to them through their iPads and when they are not charged, it is impossible to do what is asked of them.

With this new charging station, we can ensure that all iPads are being charged and accounted for each day. There will not be the problem of uncharged iPads each day which will help the students to be able to complete their daily work that is asked of them.
