My students need an iPad and protective case.
If you are reading this, then you have access to 21st century technology! Learning to type, or search the Internet are things that many of my students DON'T have the opportunity to do, even on a weekly basis. They have minimal technology support at home and little availability in the classroom.
I have a class of 23 second grade students who are attending a low income, low achievement school.
Our school has a fairly new Performing Arts magnet, that is growing abundantly each year. We are reaching children through the arts, and need resources to teach students how to use basic technology. We have 3 classroom computers to do it with. We do not have a full time technology teacher in our school due to funding, so it is left to the classroom teachers to teach students everything they need to know about typing, researching, and navigating a computer and the internet.
I am requesting one iPad mini that students will use to help get acclimated to using the Internet, and other applications. There are so many resources on an iPad that allow students to integrate technology into reading. I often try to allow my students to work in groups for projects that are presented in front of the class and an iPad camera would help to capture some of those moments and allow student reflection. My students need these iPads to help them learn basic 21st Century technology skills and apply them to other areas like reading, math, social studies, and science.
Donating to this cause would make a HUGE impact on our students.
Coming from low income families, this would give them incentive to be excited about school. With the lack of technology in our school, having tools like these at our fingertips would be amazing. They will be learning basic technology skills while learning content at the same time.
