Tablets 4 Techie Class

Help me give my students 20 tablets with cases to use for distance learning.

My Students

My students are creative and enthusiastic about learning. They are in an extremely low economic area with very little support. Our school is a Title 1 school serving free breakfast and lunch. We also send home pantry items every two weeks.

With the right tools, my students can still succeed during this time of closure.

Access to devices and internet is difficult so they are left using paper packets. The problem with this is many struggle with comprehension and their parents do not know what to do.

My Project

What are the 2 things that will help close the economic gap? I believe it's reading and technology. Help me, teach my students while they are at home and in the future when we are back in the classroom.

You can help get technology into their hands!

I use a variety of online tools to teach my students. I create presentations and assignments that students can work on at their own pace. My school district has given my students to a few online sites that also help me with reinforcing concepts.

How do tablets help? They are much lighter and easier for me to secure with software I already own. I can download the apps the school district uses for them. Students can take pictures and easily share it with me. They can record their voices and use it to as a virtual dry erase board. I also use online conference calls to conduct small groups and class meetings during our closure.
