Jen Hutman is fortunate to participate in the District’s 21st Century Technology Cohort. She is learning about the latest technology available to our students and how to implement this technology in the classroom. As a part of this cohort, she received ten iPads, an Intuit Touchpad, three microphones, and two LiveScribe Smartpens.
After realizing that iPad cases, screen protectors, and adapters were not part of the grant, Jen worried about introducing the equipment without necessary protection. However, almost IMMEDIATELY, her concerns were put to rest by the support of our 4th grade Columbine parents. Only hours after she mentioned the need for these supplies, emails were sent asking some parents to make donations to cover the expenses for the equipment. And within a few hours, the 4th grade parents collected $300 for Jen’s team. Not only was she able to get everything that she needed, but she was also left with some funds to purchase APPs for the iPADs!
Thanks to all of the generous donations made by the 4th grade parents, our students will now have this technology available to them!
