Mrs. Summa from Tracy CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology Needed - An iPad Please!

My students need an iPad and cover in order to allow students to work on their standards at their own pace by using educational applications and safe internet sites.

My Students

A typical day in my classroom involves students being active in their education.

My students are hard working 4th graders that attend public school.

With the transition to the new standards and the limited budget, my students do not have access to the technology they really need in order to thrive. My students would benefit from having applications in which they can review their standards at their own pace and in a safe environment.

My Project

Having this iPad would allow more students the opportunity to work on their standards at their own pace by using educational applications and safe Internet sites. Students will work in a rotation to allow everyone use of the technology. This is another form of intervention, in addition to being enrichment.

This project is important to my students as they deserve to have technology no matter what state the education budget is in.

My students would benefit from this iPad (and safety cover). Thank you for helping my students.
