Special Grant:iPads: Tapping into the Perfect Learning Companion

iPads: Tapping into the Perfect Learning Companion was written by Laura Campbell (3rd grade) and Jamie Keenan (1st grade).   This grant will integrate a set of iPads into two classrooms per grade level, 1-4, at H.C. Burgard Elementary. All 4 Kindergarten teachers will also have the technology thanks to the new district plans.

The HCB teachers will work together in this pilot program to continue to increase the integration of technology across the curriculum and provide new learning experiences for their children. There will be same grade level teacher collaboration, as well as cross grade level collaboration. This pilot will include six student iPads and one teacher iPad per participating classroom. This will enable them to use the technology in whole and small group instruction, as well as independent work for the students.

The grant writers will serve as professional leaders in teacher training, and will help to develop activities and lessons by leading monthly meetings of all participating teachers for sharing ideas. Mrs. Campbell and Mrs. Keenan will attend a summer training, the IPad Summit, and will pass on their learning to the other teachers before school begins.

The iPad has powerful creative tools, interactive textbooks and a universe of apps and content that makes for endless learning possibilities.

100% of the $65,650 contributed by the businesses in the EITC program for 2013-14 which will fund these grants was spent on the 2014-15 EITC grants.
