My Students

We are in love with learning! We like to learn in a variety of ways, but our favorite way to learn is by creating our own projects and by teaching each other!

We are a group of 17 wonderful learners!

My class has a variety of interests but the one we all have in common is having fun when we learn. We always have the most fun when we create our own learning experiences. Instead of watching an educational video, we want to make our own educational videos. We want to make our learning come to life!

My Project

My students need 4 iPad minis to create amazing learning adventures. My students will be able to research all the areas that we study and then turn that knowledge into virtual projects. Each learning experience will culminate with a project on the iPad as we teach each other about what we have learned. We know that the best way to get information into our long-term memory is to teach it to someone else.

Donating to this project will be a quality investment into the learning experiences of 17 sweet students.

Completing this project will give my students the ability to take charge of their own learning and create meaningful educational experiences.
