My Students

My students live in a small, rural town that has limited technology access in our classrooms. Our school's population consists of many students who get free breakfasts and lunches. Some students even get backpacks of food to take home for the weekend.

My students love to use devices throughout the day.

iPads, Kindles, and cell phones are always at the forefront of their minds and they are experts at quickly finding answers to questions.

I would like to use their enthusiasm and knowledge of technology to enhance their learning in the classroom. We currently do not have enough devices for all students to use them effectively in our classroom. I would like to have some more devices so my students can be actively involved in learning this year!

My Project

The Kindles purchased will allow me to utilize technology more often in my reading classroom. My classroom currently only has 6 iPads to share between 28 students in one period.

Kindles that are purchased for this project will allow more students to use technology in my classroom.

We will be able to play more educational games, like Kahoot, to engage students in reviewing for important tests and quizzes. Students will also be able to take Accelerated Reader tests more frequently because there will be more devices in the classroom.

Students will also be able to showcase more of their work they complete in the classroom on their Seesaw accounts. This allows them to communicate and share their work with their parents throughout the school day. Adding these Kindles to our classroom will enhance learning for all of the students.
