Your gifts will help us to obtain a teacher iPad in each of the five first-grade classrooms along with Apple TV. Having the iPads and Apple TV would help us to display student learning and to engage students through visual models.
We would like to have these tools added to the classroom as the bulk of our curricular areas are in a digital platform. Having Apple TV allows us to display the lessons, record student work, give formative assessments, and provide feedback. These are just some of the many ways in which this technology piece can be incorporated into the learning. This will help meet students learning abilities and needs at all levels, from below level to beyond level.
Having the Apple TV and iPad together allows the teacher to roam the classroom and to engage students in a more productive manner.
