Mrs. Stasko from Orlando FL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students an iPad for more access to technology to increase engagement and learning.
My students bounce in the door each morning eager to fill their minds with knowledge. Students can't wait to find out not only what they will learn, but how they will learn it.
Our class represents 7 countries and range from on-level readers to readers 4 grades above level.
This leads to the need for differentiation and the need for enrichment so every child finds success. The best part is that within our classroom, we are a school family who have one very important thing in common: a love for learning!
I can see it now- the look of excitement and empowerment when students have access to a tablet for learning. In this 21st century world, students need computer skills as much as they need any other basic skills. With 19 students in my classroom, students have to wait a very long time for a turn with the tablet. We are in need of an iPad to use with our OSMO gaming system in order to achieve our goal of every student being engaged in a learning task on their level the majority of the day.
Students light up when they are able to get online to discover their own answer to a question.
Additionally, the use of an iPad will allow us to better differentiate instruction. During small group time, students can learn on leveled reading and math programs, getting content designed specifically for their needs. Early finishers would also be able to access the iPad so every student is always engaged in a meaningful task.
We work so hard everyday to teach our students as much as we possibly can. In an ever changing technological world, a blended learning classroom where teacher-led lessons are combined with computer/tablet learning seems to be the best way to lead our students to ultimate success. Thank you for supporting our classroom and contributing to our love for learning!
