Wired for Research: Digital Access for Hungry Learners

My students need an iPad mini to conduct research in the classroom, as they have no access to any computer equipment.

My Students

My students are the most creative, intelligent, respectful and diverse group of adolescents you could meet. Many commute for hours morning and evening using all types of public transportation to be able to attend a school that challenges and educates them both academically and artistically.

Hungry to broaden their knowledge and intellect, my students inspire me every day with their commitment to their studies despite many personal and institutional hardships.

Their compassion for each other, their community and their world reveal a maturity beyond their years.

My Project

My students need access to a digital learning device to conduct research during class. Our computer lab is booked with coding classes and many classes can never obtain access to the lab. Sometimes I allow my students to use their phones to conduct research, however not all students own one which can be an alienating and demoralizing experience.

I would like to start with just one portable electronic device, the iPad mini, so it could be passed around and shared during research projects.

The extra sturdy protective case will help preserve the iPad even when used by eager and enthusiastic adolescents.
