Hello Everyone. I am seeking donations to purchase 4 Ipads for our classroom. Through numerous education apps, interactive books, opportunities to connect with others outside the classroom and increasing class-wide collaborations....I will implement a well integrated program that raises literacy rates, math skills and has an overall positive impact on student learning across the curriculum.
Customized learning- All educators and parents can agree, students learn at different paces and through different learning styles. It is particularly important during those formative years in elementary school learning the basics, that students get the personalized learning they need. That’s where the iPad comes in. Teachers can reinforce what is being taught with the iPads allowing student to practice certain skills at their own level and pace.
Abundance of educational apps- It seems like there’s an app for everything these days. All these iPad apps are changing the way students grasp new concepts and allow them an infinite amount of opportunities to learn. Fun educational games can really take learning to a whole new level getting students more excited than ever!
Keeping their attention- With all the video games and technology students get to play with when they get home, it’s no wonder today’s little digital natives have a hard time getting excited about doing a worksheet. It’s time to take advantage of their interests and use what they love to get their attention by bringing technology like iPads in the classroom. Chances are they have already seen and played with one before. They are so much more interactive and engaging than just a piece of paper.
Below are some interesting survey results about using tablets like iPads in the classroom.
- A research study, conducted in Auburn, Maine showed that Kindergartner students using iPads scored much higher on literacy tests than students that didn’t use the device.
- A study from KIPP Academy in Houston, TX showed the percentage of students who rated either proficient or advanced (the 'passing' rate) was 49% percent higher in the 'flipped classrooms' using the iPads than in the traditional classrooms with no iPads.
- Another study centered on an iPad game, Motion Math, has shown that the iPad can help with fundamental math skills. Fifth graders who regularly played the game for 20 minutes per day over a five-day period increased their test scores by 15 percent on average.
Thank you so much for supporting our future!
