TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need electronic tablets to do all the things that will make them successful in this 21st century learning environment.
I have three third grade groups. 45 latin pupils in total. I am a bilingual teacher from Spain specialized in Science and Social Studies. I would like to give them the same opportunities than students in better areas of Houston. They are growing and learning in the same small, tight knit, school community. They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners. They are mini inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it yet. They are budding ambassadors, world travelers, scientists, entrepreneurs, teachers... They are our future and I want to give them a great start to their long successful career.
Having the set of iPads will allow for different structures of learning in my classroom. On way they will be used is as a STEM center. Students can look up pictures of catapults and then design their own using nothing more than Popsicle sticks, rubber bands, and Pom-poms. Another way they will be used is by recording the results of an experiment. Recently, we have investigated how volcanoes work, Also, we did slime. Students could take pictures of their results at different time intervals and record observations through notes. They could collaborate on group findings by sharing through the cloud. I could download apps, such as Kahoot and plikkers, for various science practice skills, which would allow me to have activities for both my highest performing and most struggling students.
My project will make a difference because, as I said before, these students are the digital natives.
Our classrooms are not yet at the level technologically to meet their needs as learners. This grant will help to close that gap just a little bit more.
