Statewide Reach for Local Impact

FIND IT FUND IT FLORIDA

My classroom is very diverse in ability, culture and socioeconomic status. I have students living in the wealthiest of communities, along the beach, in the same classroom as students who walk to school from the public housing development. But, I find that, no matter what kids don't have in common, there is always one thing they can do together: LEARN! My students come in, each day, eager to learn new things, to become innovators and to grow as independent learners. I am requesting various tech tools because I want to enhance the usage of the technology in the classroom.

Goal

My classroom is very diverse in ability, culture and socioeconomic status. I have students living in the wealthiest of communities, along the beach, in the same classroom as students who walk to school from the public housing development. But, I find that, no matter what kids don't have in common, there is always one thing they can do together: LEARN! My students come in, each day, eager to learn new things, to become innovators and to grow as independent learners. I am requesting various tech tools because I want to enhance the usage of the technology in the classroom.  

 

What will be done with my students

We currently have several iPads in our class, and my students use them both independently and cooperatively. I am looking for ways to keep my class "in the know" with what's going on locally, nationally and even globally. I want to be able to ignite their interests and allow them to explore the world beyond our four walls. Technology is a great tool that can transform the classroom, but it can be costly to maintain the costs of all the accessories that go along with it.
I strive to build a classroom that is interactive where learning is authentic and students are creating, collaborating and constructing meaning on their path to understanding. On a weekly basis you might see them recording videos, filming on green screens, animating artwork, researching information, and filming book reviews to name a few. Many of these tasks require tools other than our iPads. Tools such as stylus pens, earbuds and microphones will allow students more independence throughout their collaborative activities.

 

 

Benefits to my students

Tools like earbuds, styluses, microphones and splitters will allow my students to quietly work both independently and cooperatively, in a way that prevents them from bothering other learners around them. These tools would also give students more freedom to work and less wait time due to sharing equipment with classmates.  

 

Budget Narrative

Price includes 20 stylus pens, 2 headphone splitters, 5 lapel microphones and 100 pairs of earbuds.
