My Students

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to do your learning and creative thinking all in one place? My students love to experiment with technology by using iPads and computers but we never seem to have enough of the technology for my students to use.

My students are eager to use technology to learn and create masterpieces in their own unique way.

My students come from a low-income community, where it can be rare for a student to be introduced to technology. With the use of iPads in my classroom, children will be gaining both knowledge and artistic ability to enhance their learning of the world around them.

My Project

I am asking for an iPad so that my students can work on tasks independently to improve their learning levels.

This iPad will help my students to achieve a level of independence while working on educational materials.

The students will be able to listen to stories, read books, practice letter writing as well as play learning games that will help with letter and sound correspondence, and math games for learning shapes, numbers and other math lessons. They will also be able to show their artistic side when making beautiful art.

All the activities that the students use will help them to enhance their learning experience in the classroom. The students will be so proud of all that they have accomplished on their own.
