My students need a classroom iPad and Apple TV to show how mathematics comes alive in the 21st century world.
Hi! I am a second year teacher, new to my school this year! I am teaching 6th, 7th, 8th, and accelerated Algebra in a very small, rural public school district. I am looking for support to buy a classroom iPad, Apple TV, and Apple pencil.
Many of my students come from low-income households, some without access to the internet due to the rural area they live in.
Since they have limited access to technology at home, my goal is to teach them how to responsibly and effectively use technology at school. In my math class, we often complete project based assessments that supports real world scenarios. The use of updated technology would support this type of inquiry based learning.
The school district is very small, with enrollment totaling just over 100 students, from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Due to the small size, funding for items like iPads, is limited. Please consider funding this project so my students may have access to the same technology that other, larger schools have access to. Thank you!
My goal is to improve my teaching and include technology as much as possible in my math classroom. Next school year, we will be using a mostly computer based math program. With the current shift to Computer-Based Testing, I am trying to familiarize my students with technology to better prepare them.
The implementation of classroom technology increases engagement and collaboration among peers, while personalizing their educational experience.
With the use of the iPad and Apple TV, I will no longer have to stand at the board to write notes or examples. I will be able to walk around the room and interact with students as we have rich discussions involving mathematics. Students will be able to write on the iPad to express their thoughts, show their work, and share ideas with others. Since children are surrounded by technology in today's modern world, we need to speak to them in a language they understand. My goal is to show students how vivid and colorful mathematics is as we investigate how math describes the world around us.
