This iPad pillow has been a super addition to my small ESL groups. My students get to take turns using it when we have group and I can tell they work even harder during our time together. This picture shows one of my students using the pillow to help him with his research about dolphins. Thanks for helping my students learn!

SO COOL!!!

This is perfect for the tutorial sessions in our AVID classes. Students are able to use the PadPillow to hold the iPad so that it is in a comfortable writing position and easy for them to see. I'm excited to use this with more groups, once I get my hands on more technology to make it happen.

I'm keeping 4 of the 6 I received, to use in my classroom. I'm giving the other two away to a teacher who has a cart of iPads. I'm sure students will fit over them!

The IPEVO Wireless Keyboard and Typi Folio Case has been extremely beneficial for my 4th graders in a variety of situations throughout the school day. They are able to utilize it during math when we work on math skills on the ipads using different apps, while writing a summary of stories we've read during reading and to practice their spelling words. They've also been able to use the keyboard when they are taking Accelerated Reader tests so they can meet their AR goals throughout each quarter. Thank you for granting my wish and allowing our class to become better at keyboarding!

Thank you so much for the Padpillows! My students absolutely love them. In my classroom, my students are allowed to work where they want. The Padpillows are claimed right away and the kids work with them on their laps, on the floor or at their desks. The Padpillows are also great when the kids share an iPad. The stand gives the partners just the right angling and space. Thank you so much for investing in education and helping my students learn. We love Ipevo!

The PadPillow is a perfect way to prop the student's ipad up while using a bluetooth enabled keyboard to work on class work. The PadPillow is also great for propping low-tech items such as books and other reading material and keep this student's desktop clear for his papers and notebooks. Thanks IPEVO!

This product has enabled my students to utilize our classroom iPad in a more comfortable and accessible way. The students enjoy being able to lie down on the carpet while using the IPAD. The PadPillow Pillow Stand for iPad also makes learning more presentable in an inclined position. The students can sit at a table and see the iPad more clearly without glare. The pad pillow allows my students who are wheel-chair bound, have an ability to enjoy the iPad more comfortable. My students and I thank you so much for granting our wish!

My students were so excited when I received my 6 ipad pillows for our classroom. They can easily watch their learning videos, and create their presentations "hands free"! The students are also able to do their response sheets simultaneously while viewing their ipads. As a teacher, I don't have to worry about the ipads being dropped, misplaced, or damaged when using the ipad pillows! Thank you IPEVO!!

The students were thrilled to have the pads to use in their reading time. Some students laid on the floor with their ipads on the pillows while others used them at their seats. The students felt relaxed while reading and even the complaining about sitting up straight reduced. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to increase the desire fro reading in my class. The pillows are an answer to prayer.

Thank you so much for the case and keyboard for our IPAD. The students have been busy using it to write pen pal letters, create writing stories, and improve their growth in technology use. They are also working on a blog that we are working on within the classroom. The students use the time to write about what they are doing in class and what they are working on. They also use the time to communicate with one another through the blog. We are very grateful for the gift and appreciate you thinking of our class. Thank you again so much!

I teach HS math and anything that gets my kids engaged is a a great thing in the HS, when i showed them the IPAD pillows my students LOVED the idea and said how much they loved being able to sit on the floor instead of the desk, I wish i had one for every student, instead what i am doing now is each group gets one when it involves group work or i pick individual students to allow them to use the Tech pillows, my Students LOVE THEM! thank you for making "our wish" come true!

I need it because...
The interactive whiteboard would be a perfect addition to a technology classroom for history. Social Studies/History is a social classroom by nature. You cannot learn and understand history without interacting with each other. A lot of the strategies used in the history curriculum require the use of maps, charts, graphs, and other learning tools. The interactive whiteboard would make the use of these tools extremely useful. We have found that most students often reach that higher level of learning on Bloom’s Taxonomy by teaching their peers. This is not always practical in a traditional classroom setting, but using the interactive whiteboards would allow students to “show” their work to the rest of the class.

By incorporating technology that allows a student to showcase what they have learned or to teach others, student progress can be monitored. Powerpoints and documents (primary sources) could be transferred from a teacher-driven format to a student driven format.
65% of all students are visual learners. The interactive whiteboard would not only make class more interesting, which would increase student participation, but would also help a majority of our students collect information. The use of technology for multiple intelligences increases student learning.

I need it because...
I've been eyeing this since it was only hinted at on the IPEVO site. I will use this in two different ways, since it is so portable.

First, I get asked to do presentations in rooms where there isn't an interactive white board. Being able to set this up in minutes and have a IWB ready to go will be so helpful in presenting, teaching, and making the class/audience interact. I also envision this being used in small group work in my classroom with a portable projector.

Second, I teach a graduate level course at a local university. The course is called Technology in the Classroom. Basically, we (my co-teacher and I) are teaching pre-service teachers how to use technology in the classroom and what the best practices are for implementing all kinds of hardware and software. We co-teach most of the course. However, we do split the learners for various activities. One of the rooms has a projector but not a IWB. Keeping the IWB capability in both sessions would be ideal.

In addition, we a class session, 4 hours, where learners are able to get hands-on with all sorts of technology that we beg, borrow, and, well, enough said. They get use various IWBs, clickers, doc cams (including the awesome little Point2View), iPads, iPods, and whatever else we can finagle for the night. Adding the IS-01 IWB System to our arsenal would be awesome. It might even inspire new teachers to part with some of their first paycheck to implement this in their classroom.

Thank you for reading this and for creating Wishpool!!!

I need it because...
My students don't have the access to useful technology in the classroom. I have a chalkboard, and a television that can be hooked up to a computer. With this setup my options for creating lessons using modern technology is stunted. This interactive whiteboard system would be great for my use, and for the students to interact on a large screen as opposed to just writing on a chalkboard. I would love to be able to have my students spend time up in the front of the class with an interactive whiteboard.

I would be able to use the Interactive Whiteboard in reinforcing math skills (physically manipulating numbers, symbols, pictures, etc.), language arts skills (practicing writing letters, words, sentences), handwriting skills, fine motor skills, and so much more. The system would allow for daily interactive use with my students.
I have a small classroom and this system would allow for the limited space available.

My 4th grade students would absolutely love to have the IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System with Projection Screen in our classroom! We could utilize it in a variety of situations throughout each school day. We would be able to use it to project our math lessons to practice our math facts, review difficult skills and concepts and model them for others in our class. We could also use it to model our narrative writing, as well as view science concepts that learn throughout the year. The Interactive Whiteboard System could be used all day, every day and would be highly motivational for my kids, who would be able to learn in a variety of ways.

I need it because...
In this day and age of the technology driven classroom, the abilty to use you computer as an in class teaching tool is imperative. Smart Boards and Promethian Boards have become the rage throughout the education world, and if you aren't using the interactive technology they provide your classroom with, then you really are lagging behind the times and doing your students a disservice.
I am at a disadvantage when it comes to this because I am a floating teacher with no home to call my own. Because of this, I am often put into classrooms that do not have interactive white board technology, and it sometimes limits what I am able to do with several of my classes. Your Interacticve whiteboard system is perfect for teachers like me that do not have a classroom. It is easy to transport and set up, which is perfect for a teacher on wheels.
If selected, I look forward to using this device so I can share your product with my fellow teachers. There are people and schools all over Mississippi that would love to purchase outstanding technology for there schools at such a reasonable price.

Thank you for your consideration,

This Interactive Whiteboard would be an amazing tool to use in my special education classroom. I teach Social Studies to students who have a wide range of abilities and have trouble staying focused in class. Having this Interactive Whiteboard would allow me to design lessons where the students can get out of their seats and interact with the content using the whiteboard. My students who are non-verbal could demonstrate their understanding by dragging and dropping images. This would really revolutionize what we are able to do in our classroom!

This would not be an item for myself, but for one of the classrooms in my building that is not currently equipped with a smart board like the rest. This teachers work with students who are special needs and this could provide him a tool to help meet those students needs better in the classroom he has been assigned. We are Title I School, but have been working hard in other areas with our funding to meet the needs of all of our students and this could help us out tremendously.

This would allow us to use the interactive whiteboard while we are sitting on the carpet during a whole group close reading lesson. We could use the interactive whiteboard while we are at the back of the room doing a science experiment. We could even use the interactive whiteboard while we are in the hallway doing small group instruction and remediation. The possibilities are endless. We can't wait to get started!

I need it because...
I teach science exploration to the kindergarten classes through 5th grade. My classes are active classes where students examine and study concepts through hands on activities and models. Having such a wide range of school ages, the ability to demonstrate and show life size examples are key. So many tims I find myself holding up pictures and pointing, hoping all the students can see what I am talking about.

The interactive whiteboard will allow me to show clips or pictures of land forms, scientific diagrams of plants or seeds and stop to highlight key concepts. Students can also use this board to demonstrate their understanding of an idea by approaching the board to answer questions and be able to show the whole class the answer. This technology will allow me to stop and point out details that would be difficult to explain or show to the whole class from a book or single picture. It is a terrific tool to improve my students understanding of scientific concepts.
