Princeton Math Class to Get iPods, Thanks to Teacher Grant
Coming soon to Amber Beach’s fourth grade math classes at Princeton Elementary? Another half dozen iPod Touches to further ignite learning amongst her students.
Beach was beyond surprised when she walked into the gymnasium to cheers and a television camera. It quickly became clear, Beach had won the $1,000 KTBS/Barksdale Federal Credit Union “One Class At A Time” teacher grant she had applied for.
Beach is a big believer in technology in the classroom. Since purchasing seven iPod Touches, it has enabled her to customize students’ lessons that fit their level and learning style with a few taps on the screen. They are also able to practice math skills in a hands-on way that engages them.
Her kids love them. The only problem is rotating seven devices among 23 children becomes a challenge and limits their effectiveness. Thanks to the “One Class At A Time” grant, Beach will be able to buy six more and a $100 iTunes gift card to purchase apps.
“I am so excited to receive more innovative technology for my classroom and cannot wait to get these iPods into the hands of my students,” Beach said. “I am thrilled!”
