Tablet, Tablet, Who's Got the Tablet?

My students need an ASUS Transformer Pad tablet.

My Students

E-books! Video-chatting! Making films! Who has that tablet?

My students, who are gifted and talented, live in a very rural part of New Mexico, in a reservation-border town, or on the reservation.

Many of my students have never been out of the area. It is not unusual for students to not have running water or electricity, let alone "wi-fi." Many of my students are intimidated by the use of technology. My students are curious about the world around them, and most have the goal of going to college.

My Project

One way for my students to reach their goal is to know and understand the world of technology! A tablet is one way to do this. Not only will students learn how to manipulate a tablet, but they will also have an opportunity to create films, read e-books (after an "e-book" has been explained), and video-chat with other students in and out of the area. One activity I would like my students to participate in is to discuss a shared book with students at another school. Working to provide services at three elementary schools, as well as daily at the mid-school, has been a challenge. Having the book discussion through video-chat at two schools at one time will help with providing services in a timely manner. More importantly, this will allow students to gain a different perspective, meet new people, increase technology skills, as well as increase their self-efficacy.

My students are bright, excited and dream big!

I want them to have opportunities to interact with technology in a way that increases their knowledge and levels the playing field with other students who have daily access.
