Goal

Our goal is to gain access to technology in order to reach our unique gifted goals. In order to become deeper thinkers, we need to dig deeper into the field of research. In order to accomplish this goal, we need more tablets available for our class to use! 

 

What will be done with my students

My very curious students come up with question daily which I can't answer myself! Having a group of gifted learners has allowed me the opportunity to learn so much myself. These kids will be introduced to research programs such as Sora, Worldbook Online, Kids InfoBits, and NewsELA in order to find answers to their higher-level questions. Having access to tablets will allow students to reach their personal gifted goals, all while providing them access to the world's information at their fingertips. I want to build a love for research so this group of kids never lose their inquisitiveness, and continue to question the world around them.  

 

Benefits to my students

Gaining a set of tablets would be huge for the students in my classroom! These students will benefit from learning research skills, while is a skill necessary for succeeding in their academic career, as well as in the future when they follow the career paths of their choice. Students will learn how to differentiate between relevant, verified information, and the opinions of online writers. With technology, anything is possible, and so are the questions gifted learners come up with! 

 

Describe the Students

My students attend a brand new full-time gifted magnet program. Our school is unlike any others within the district, as we do not have any "gen ed" students. Every student within my classroom has their own personalized educational plan with goals and learning strategies specific to them. Curriculum is differentiated in so many ways for these learners, and technology would be such a help with this.  

 

Budget Narrative

Amazon is selling the highly-rated Fire HD10 Tablets for $150 each. For $1500, I could have a set of 10 tablets for my class to use. We will figure out a rotation schedule, as to ensure that each student gets equal access to technology.
