Technology Helps Students
My students need an iPad to help reinforce important skills.
Please help continue the students' excitement! Because of the generosity of past DonorsChoose contributors, my students have become so excited about learning.
My third graders attend a well-maintained school in a high-poverty, rural area.
Many students have extremely limited access to any type of modern technology. In fact, some students live in such remote areas that Internet access is not available.
Our school offers as many opportunities as possible for these students to interact with technology, and they eagerly seize that chance!
Through previous projects listed on DonorsChoose, my class has received iPod Touches. They are so proud of these, and treat these machines with the utmost care. They understand the monetary value and also the wonderful opportunity we have been given to interact with such technology.
Because we have three times as many students as iPods, the children are very polite and share the time they're able to work on these devices. However, the size of these iPods makes it difficult to work successfully in groups.
Also, some of my special needs students have difficulty manipulating the small devices. The iPad I have requested would allow multiple students to work together and would offer a more successful opportunity for my special needs students.
Your generous donation to this project will enable me to download many terrific applications that the children get so excited about. They truly see these activities as pure fun.
As a teacher, I have control over which applications are available to my students and I have complete confidence that while they are enjoying themselves, they are reinforcing skills and learning new material.
The use of this technology continually reinforces that learning is lifelong and can be very enjoyable!
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
