This is my first year teaching and I would love to integrate an iPad into my Resource Room classroom, I really feel that the hands on aspect would help my junior high special needs students. If you have any advice on how to get one funded, any tips would be greatly appreciated.

I have taken the time to create a project at and would love it if you guys could promote my project or if you would like to donate to my project, I would be so grateful!

Here is the link to my project, check it out!

Hi Tyler,
Just a quick question: are you looking for one iPad? Or one for each child? We've had a lot of success with parent-funded models in my school.

Hey Tyler,

If I'm not mistaken Apple has quite a substantial education discount when a school or even just individual classroom is looking at integrating their technology.
I'm not sure if its advertised anymore but contacting your regional manager is your best bet to work something out.
Great idea to innovate the interaction in your students and good luck!

I really appreciate it :)
I really appreciate your kindness to help your student to improve their study skills.
Using smart board in classroom may solve part of the problem and it can be a temporary solution until getting an iPad for each student.
