Mission Technology Upgrade!
How I plan on obtaining a set of iPads at my middle school
Mission Impossible - Theme Song by Theme_Song_Fanatic
It became very clear during my first few days at my new school that this was a huge roadblock for teachers, who are striving to meet the needs of the 21st Century Learners. Teachers are using their own personal iPads or tablet to introduce students to apps that foster an excitement for learning and producing.
This is in no way going to solve my overall problem of having a lack of technology , but it is a step in the right direction.
So I began researching possible grants that would move me towards the final goal of obtaining a class set of iPad minis for our school. After searching possible options, I finally found a grant that would fit all the criteria I was hoping to meet. The Dollar General Literacy Foundation grant will be available to apply for in January 2015. I will have all of my data and information ready to complete the grant process. In the meantime, my job share partner and I have spent some time discussing what local businesses have a stake in our school and may be willing to donate to this meaningful technology project. We are in the process of drafting emails and letters to share our goal in hopes that they will help us meet our goal.
