Opportunity: Students Learning With iPads!

Screen shot 2011-11-17 at 1.42.18 PM
Update: We are making progress!
(read more)
One of our goals this year is provide teachers and students with a project-based learning lab using the Apple iPad 2. These are amazing devices that make learning, reading, watching and creating so engaging and immersive. With specialized equipment that desktops and laptops don't have (geolocation, accelerometer, compass, gyroscopes) and an intuitive touch interface, the iPad 2 is in a category of its own as a personal communications, data gathering, media creation and consumption device.

Unfortunately, school funding for technology has only permitted us to buy 10 iPad 2's at this time. About a dozen of our staff have purchased iPads on their own or have been issued iPads– and they are very excited to use them with your students. We hope to purchase at least 10 more iPads before the end of the first semester, and we have about half the money required to do so- we need another $2000. But don't let that scare you… we have scaled this down to smaller bite size chunks. And the students can even begin using the 10 iPads as soon as we have some of the smaller things taken care of.

In addition to purchase of the iPads, we need about $300 for iPad covers (protection against breakage), and a couple $100 of startup money for low cost apps (the apps cost less than $5 each, but 5 X 20 iPads = $100).

We present this to you as an exciting goal and project that that we would love to have parents help on. If you know of a grant, local business partner, or funding source, please contact Mr. Shupe. It may be that you would like to sponsor an iPad, a $20 donation for iPad cover, or $10 iTunes gift card for App purchases. We welcome your suggestions!

We will award one hour volunteer time for each $10 value contribution to this project.

Other volunteers will be needed to set up the book fair and monitor as classes come through.

  • Our professional library for teachers needs to be moved and organized in its new space. I have cleared the shelves for the new location already with the volunteers who helped box those novels at the beginning of the year. It would require a few hours of work but it could be done in small chunks of activity anytime the media center is open during the day. I would just need to set up an appointment for a first meeting to explain the activity to one or two parents who could commit to this activity
