Ms. Ferrell from Minneapolis MN is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology Engages Learners

My students need 4 iPads to enhance their learning.

  • $2,185 goal

This project expired on November 29, 2015.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Comfort and experience with technology is essential in our world. It's also a great way to engage students and enhance learning.

My students are from many different backgrounds.

What they have in common is great potential. I have high expectations for each of them. I want to put iPads in their hands. We currently have only 2 to share and with 28 kids in the classroom, that's just not enough.

My Project

I'm so excited to use these 4 new iPads. I've taken classes on integrating technology in the classroom and want my kids to have the opportunities it provides. The possibilities are boundless - reading, writing, math practice, virtual field trips, blogging, creating videos to showcase learning... I can only imagine the creative ways they could explain mealworms and their life cycles. Help me unleash the learning!

Engaged students love learning.

Help me put learning into their hands. Given the tools, kids can do amazing things! Let them direct their learning and take ownership of their work. Technology is a key component of a strong 21st century education.
