$1,157 to fund purchase of an iPad Pro, sturdy case and Apple Pencil for 6th graders at Larry Larson Middle School.

The iPad Pro will be used to improve collaboration between peers, learning differentiation, instructional flexibility and also allow students to project their work. The iPad Pro will allow students to remain in their seats and project their work onto Smartboard in real time, helping students to share their work even when they are not initially comfortable standing in front of the class at the Smartboard.  It will also be used to support collaboration among a group of students working on a problem simultaneously on the large display while also projecting their work.

The grant also includes funds to cover the cost of an Apple Pencil, complimenting the versatility of the iPad Pro by selectively reading the Pencil without interference from other touches from teacher or students as they work on the surface.
