Hooray! This project is fully funded
As we know, times are changing and our world is becoming more and more technological. Our school incorporates many web based academic tools to supplement our whole group instruction and extend students' independent practice and learning.
My students are Kindergarten students in an at-risk elementary school where more than 60% of students receive free and reduced lunch.
Very few of my students have home access to computers and the Internet. We have only 8 classroom computers to accommodate 30 students.
My students need an Apple iPad Mini to give more opportunities to access academic technology in our classroom on a daily basis. We would like to be able to add this new piece of technology to our classroom to allow more opportunities for our students to access our web based teaching tools that have deeply impacted our school's test scores over the last 4 years.
The teachers lay the foundation, but our computer programs have helped the students to be in charge of their own learning and have really helped them take ownership of their own academic goals.
By adding this tablet to our classroom, we will be able to get more students onto our online materials each day.
