Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 114

Students have been able to easily access programs online that we have used to review curriculum for both state testing and semester exams.

Classes used Nearpod to take notes that could be done at students own pace.

Quizizz was used for various topics where students asked questions and competed with class mates for the highest score.

State exams for Science have been completed but scores wil lnot be in until the end of summer.

Classes are still using iPads to review for semester exams which will be in two weeks.

The use of this technology has made it quicker and more efficient for students to use the online tools and we will be able to use this technology next year for even more activities.

Data has not been compiled yet as we have to wait for the return of scores.

Original Grant Overview

Project Goal

To purchase five Apple iPads for use in an 8th grade classroom to support and enhance 21st Century STEM skills. The iPads would be used to access Gizmos, Nearpods and PHET simulations in the classroom allowing for students to be exposed to technology and bring abstract concepts to life. 

 

How Project Benefits Students

The iPads will allow for easy access to educational sites used in the classroom. Collaborative groups of students will be able to go through simulations that they actually perform versus simply watching them on the screen. The more hands on the students are the more likely they are to actually show an interest in what is being taught to them.  

 

Expected Outcome(s)

The ipads will be used by 112 students in the present year with estimates being higher for the coming year. Students being able to collaborate more and actively participate in simulations will lead to a better understanding of the curriculum. In turn this will lead to higher grades and test scores.  

 

Detailed Cost Summary

Each iPad Air is $311.10 and each unit must include Microsoft Operating System + Office Suite per district guidelines at a cost of $75.00 each
