Tech for the Tiniest Learners—Using an iPad for K Students!

Help me give my students an iPad (and protective gear) that will allow easier assessment, accountability, and a fun way to engage and teach in the age of technology and virtual schooling.

My Students

I teach energetic kindergarten students at a Title I school in Jeffersonville, Indiana. We have just completed our 4th quarter of school with e-learning due to COVID-19. A huge part of kindergarten is being able to see skills demonstrated, and then practice them independently, so it has required creativity to do long-distance school with our youngest learners.

My Project

There's no doubt about it; we are currently teaching in an age of technology. Having an iPad in the classroom will allow me to use technology in a way to engage my students and empower them to be independent learners.

An iPad will provide me a way to create interactive lessons for my students, whether the next year includes in-person learning, e-learning, or both.

Much of kindergarten involves one-on-one assessment, and an iPad provides a way to streamline that process. It also allows students the option to save their work through various apps, even just by taking a picture with it (simple joys in K!) to provide accountability for them during independent work. I can also link it to my Promethean board, so I can be back with kiddos and still project work on the board at the same time.

If we are still distance learning or doing a variety of that in the upcoming year, it allows me the capability to record videos and set up lessons digitally and take online kinder to a new level.

Thank you so much for considering donating to my project!
