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
