Mrs. Thomas from Brighton MA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Take Off with Technology

My Students

It is amazing to see the effort students put into their work when they are interested in what they're learning. My students come from diverse backgrounds and have varied academic abilities, yet they all come to school wanting to learn.

Given the right tools, students can soar.

Maybe they are interested in comparing schools in different countries because they read about some examples in class. Maybe they need some extra practice with learning how to find the area of rectangles. Maybe they want to make their scientific presentation even better by including animation. As their teachers, we need to pique their interests and give them the tools to be successful learners.

My Project

These iPads will be put to use every day, multiple times a day. Some students will use them to help access stories on their reading level. Others will use them to take pictures and videos to document the steps of scientific experiments. How about searching to find just the right graphics to accompany their group research projects? Still others will use the iPads to help sharpen and advance their math skills.

By incorporating technology across disciplines throughout the day, their chances of being actively engaged in their learning will increase and allow for a more productive day and successful school year!
