Mrs. Latham from Mobile AL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology

My students need an iPad in order to become more engaged in learning. Technology is a great motivator especially with all the great educational apps available.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I would like to introduce and build on the technology skills that my students already have. My students are eager to learn and some of my students need remedial skills. Motivation is an issue in many cases. My goal is to get them more involved in learning through technology.

We are a Title I school.

I have a melting pot of students in my classroom. Some don't speak or understand English. Most of my students do not have access to current technology at their homes. As their first teacher I would like to expose them while they are so eager to learn.

My Project

My students need an iPad in order to become more engaged in learning. Technology is a great motivator especially with all the great educational apps available. My students will use it as an English language tool for those with limited English. They will use it when they are having difficulty learning alphabet, letter sounds, number recognition, and counting. My students who are performing at grade level and above grade level will use it in order to advance in language arts and math.

My students will be enriched by having the opportunity to use and understand current technology.

Their knowledge will follow them through their years in school. They will be able to learn more as they progress and keep up with changing technology.
