Technology for Preschoolers

My students need an iPad with a protective case and a stereo to use for choosing their own music, exploring educational websites and using interactive curriculum connections.

My Students

Our preschoolers are growing up in a technological world where they will be using tablets and the internet as an everyday part of their learning experiences. However, many of my students have never been introduced to the power of this new resource!

My students are a lively group of youngsters from very diverse backgrounds.

They are a group of 3 and 4 year olds, just starting off on their educational adventures! We are located in an underprivileged neighborhood about ten minutes outside of a large California city. Our program is specifically for low income students and we are designed to involve our families in their children's education as well. My students are very diverse - this year we have six different languages spoken by our students and their families.These amazing kids are ready to soak up all kinds of information and use any means we can give them to explore their world and the greater world around them.

My Project

As we are finding out, the possibilities for learning provided by a tablet, such as an Apple iPad, are endless. From things as simple as storing and being able to access all of our music at our fingertips, to more complex ideas such as translating lessons into a variety of languages, the possibilities are so exciting! Allowing the children to explore this technology will prepare them for the future, where many of them will be using tablets for everyday lessons. Introducing it at this young age will get my students comfortable with the technology and able to navigate it easily. We are excited about the possibilities for the iPad to help streamline assessments as well, freeing up more time for teachers to use in hands on lessons with the students. My students need an iPad with a protective case and a stereo to use for choosing their own music, exploring educational websites and interactive curriculum connections.

In our technological world, early exposure to the newest technology is key for our students.

These children are growing up with technology all around them which they often have no access to. Our new iPad, with all its accessories, will open up new possibilities for your preschoolers! Thank you for your help!
