Most of us use the computer mouse to draw or show our thinking. Some of us have a touch screen laptop or use an iPad, but don’t have a stylus so we are using our fingers to show our work.
Getting a drawing tablet or stylus will make the learning experience much easier on the hand and less frustrating on the students.
We can also use the device in other classes. For example, in Art, if we don’t have a piece of paper to draw, we can use the writing tablet/stylus to draw online. In ELA we might have a lesson where we need to draw about the text we are reading. We can use the stylus or the writing/drawing tablet to draw.
With the fund raised, we will purchase the drawing tablet (for laptop users) and stylus (for tablet users) from Amazon.com for students who are in need of such devices. These will be delivered directly to each student’s house. We have created a survey for students to fill out so we can gather information about who need these devices. We also calculated the estimated cost:
$29 per drawing/writing tablet device
29 x about 75 students who use laptop = $ 2,175
$15 per stylus for iPad users:
15 x about 60 students who use tablet = $ 900
Total amount needed: $3,075
