Ms. Middleton from Sardis MS is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Tablets for T.A.R.G.E.T. students

My students need 21st century tools like the Hipstreet - PRISM 7 inch Tablet and Samsung - Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 to learn and advance in the 21st century. As gifted students, they need to use technology daily.

My Students

In an area not seen as the best place for learning, my students have consistently risen to the challenge to earn "gifted status". Our environment does not dictate our jouney. We can't afford to go on many field trips, due to location and funding, but we can attend a virtual one on a daily basis.

My students are gifted individuals in grades 2-8.

We are a low socio-economic school, with many factors that should hinder us, yet we strive for excellence on a daily basis. Learning is their top priority and they come to school eager and prepared each day.

My Project

Our environment does not dictate our jouney. We can't afford to go on many field trips, due to location and funding, but we can attend a virtual one on a daily basis. By acquiring the requested tablets, my students would be able to research our topics, concepts, and units of study without having to wait on the one, outdated PC in our classroom. This will allow for more rigor in our curriculum, which will allow for gains in student achievement.

My project will make an attempt to close the gap in student achievement as well as the digital divide.

My students are gifted, so they should be afforded the use of 21st century technology. Their lives will be enriched due to the information available for learning at their fingertips.
