This technology funding proposal is to obtain state of the art technology in the science and health/wellness classrooms grades K-4 at St. Joseph School. The school serves PK-grade 8 totaling 245 students. This proposal is requesting funds to purchase additional tablets for student use in grades K-4. Using tablets, students will be able to share and compare their work from multiple devices at the same time as a projector for all to see. Interactive classrooms for grades K-4 will transform the students into active learners, thereby increasing their academic achievement and health/wellness literacy. A pre and post test evaluation will determine if the students are more engaged in the lesson and if comprehension increases. Students will also be allowed to take the tablets home to share their assignments with parents exposing the family to health/wellness curriculum. The technology committee at St. Joseph School will facilitate installation and maintenance of the requested tablets.
