I have a large Donors Chose project that expires on December 8 (22 days left). It is called, "Oh The Places We'll Go With iPad minis". I am from a Title I/ high poverty school, in a Chicago suburb, with very limited technology or resources. I teach first graders, and feel that many of them would benefit from the use of iPads and it's apps for learning, especially my full- time ELL students (75% of my class) and my students with special needs or struggling learners( dyslexia, cognitive, learning disability). Many also come from low income homes or are homeless, and they do not have access to technology outside of school. I am always seeking out resources for them that would support their learning and I like to do a lot of hands on learning. It is my hope that we can also use these iPad minis in the future for kid blogging, which will help them in many academic areas. Thank you for your consideration. http://www.donorschoose.org/project/oh-the-places-well-go-with-ipad-mini...

After four years of offering transformative workshops and leadership trainings that ignite youth and students to engage in positive change, Generation Waking Up is creating an innovative global citizenship curriculum for high schools so that teachers can take the power of this work into classrooms everywhere. The ReGeneration curriculum will provide today's high school students with a big picture understanding of our global challenges and opportunities, and will equip them with 21st century skills and tools so they can take leadership in transforming our schools, community, and our global society.

Our campaign is to empower children with the freedom to play! True, genuine play gives children the freedom to learn on their own terms, grow their imagination, and be their true selves. Our project, Miramonte Park, is designed to bring out the best of both digital and real-world play, to celebrate nature, and our place in it.


Please visit our campaign page and let us know what you think! We love feedback in addition to donations.

Thank You!

Thank you for the opportunity to share! I had some success with Donors Choose last year during my first year teaching. Currently, I have a project going for new puzzles. My Early Childhood Special Education classroom has puzzles but most are very old, dirty, and missing many pieces. My kiddos get so sad when they get to the end of the puzzle but they can't finish it because of a piece being gone. We were supposed to be able to order some new ones, but two separate break-ins at our school have resulted in all extra money going to replace gone technology. Any little bit helps and my project is up for the INSPIRE code until July 16th! http://www.donorschoose.org/project/is-a-puzzle-still-a-puzzle-without-a...
