Thank you, thank you, thank you! My students truly enjoy using the PadPillows in class. The pillows provide them the opportunity to either sit or lie down while working on their iPads.

Your donation has helped to make learning with technology fun and developmentally appropriate.

Thanks again,

What an awesome tool! I have had the opportunity to share many virtual conferences with curriculum coaches across the district without ever leaving campus. This has been a great chance to collaborate and share ideas throughout the district. I have also used the conference station with my students (pictured) to read with other groups of students across the district. We have worked on fluency and enjoyed reading with our fluency buddies at other schools. This has been a great resources for bringing people together who would normally not be able to make those connections.

My students have really enjoyed the PadPillow stands for the iPad. I have used the stands as a reward system in my classroom for the students that are continuously showing expected behavior. Students that want to use the PadPillow stand strive to do a better job as they know what the reward will be. I encourage a creative music classroom and when students are composing on an iPad app, they use all perimeters of the room. The PadPillows allows students to be comfortable when composing which I feel fosters a greater level of creativity. Thank You IPEVO Wishpool!

I am truly enjoying the internet conference station. I am currently using it to play music and sound from videos. We are getting ready to go on spring break, I will be looking for webinars that my students may be able to participate in, now that we have a way to respond to the speaker. I am extremely excited to introduce my students to a whole new way of learning and to bring more technology into my lessons. I am so appreciative of the gift. I cannot wait to find more ways to employ this technology.

I am so grateful that my students received these pad pillow stands. I work with students that have physical limitations and this particular student has to change positions throughout the day. He utilizes the lap pad pillow as do other students at this program to use their iPads more freely in various positions. THANK You IPEVO!

I use my Typi Folio Case while assessing my student's oral reading fluency. It makes the assessment much easier to conduct. It also has helped them focus more on their reading rather than trying to look at my iPad during their test. I can't wait to discover new ways this case and converter can help!

As the media specialist, I strive to find ways to allow students to learn in their own way. It was a clear to me that by applying for these pillows, I would be providing students with a way to use the media center's space in a new way while using the iPads. This product allows my students to sit or lie on the floor, sit on the couches, or sit at a table more comfortably.

WOW! The iPad pillows are great! Sometimes it is difficult for the younger students to hold the iPad and manipulate the activity - the pillow holds it steady for them, and frees up their hands. Great! I also like the way the pillow keeps the iPad from slipping. I am very appreciative of iPevo Wishpool - these pillows were a wish come true for my classroom!

My students are benefiting from the Interactive Whiteboard System in so many ways! We use it for whole class math instruction. Each student also gets an opportunity to use it in small groups throughout the week during our intervention time to sharpen their reading and math skills. "I like practicing ELA on the witeboard. It doesn't even seem like work!", said one of my 6th grade students. I have recommended the system to my colleagues on the district technology team. Thanks Ipevo!

We love our PadPillows! What a great way to hold the iPad at the perfect angle while allowing two hands to be free. This is especially useful when students need to take screen shots for their digital journals where they reflect on the activities from class. With the PadPillow, the iPads are more secure, making them ideal for use throughout the classroom, even the floor. The 8th grade students truly appreciated them as they worked to launch virtual rockets.

I need it because...
I work with five schools in the district as an Instructional Coach. I have several meetings throughout the week. I would use the VX-1 Internet Conference Station to set up meetings that all five schools can participate at the same time. This will enable teachers to have more collaboration and opportunity to share ideas.
I also provide professional development and by setting up webinars this too would allow teachers more collaboration and sharing. It would also give me more time to see individual teachers since I would not need to repeat the training several times.
I would love to receive the VX-1 Internet Conference Station!

I need it because...
Hi! I am Kate and I am a first year teacher. I teach in a school that does not have a whole lot of technology present for me to use due to the fact it's a traditional styled school, the only problem is that I teach special education, and technology is a MUST. I try really hard to buy and provide everything for my students on my own, but with no classroom allowance, it gets really pricey. The reason I think this technology would benifit my classroom is because of the interest and excitiement I could create with this. In the next year or two I will be pioneering for my school, American Leadership Academy, to go and teach in Beijing, China. Technology like this would allow me to conference wetween classrooms and even teach my students from half way around the world. When technology is scarce, something that I can use with my personal technology to enhance it for wide spread use could help change the way I teach. Thank you for the concideration!

My students need the Internet Conference Station so that they communicate with other classes in our district, state, and country with ease. This station will allow all students to be able to participate fully through the use of the microphones. It will also allow all students to be able to hear the other class through the speakerphone. The ability to conference with others will allow us to move our learning outside the classroom without leaving our room. "Oh the places they can go", with the Internet Conference Station.

I need it because...
The internet conference station would be an amazing tool to use to connect with other classrooms across the state, country, or even internationally. We could use a program like Skype to learn about different cultures by conferencing with other classes using this station. We could also use it for "virtual field trips" by conferencing with employees of places we are unable to visit. It would help provide opportunities that my students would otherwise miss out on.

I love using technology with my class. My students are always more tuned in and excited when I turn on the IPEVO whiteboard or start a video. We even use Skype to connect with authors. My class would love to have a good speaker like the VX-1 Conference Station. It would make our learning and use of technology so much easier. IPEVO products have had a great impact on my teaching and the way I can present curriculum. The Conference Station would be another nice addition. Thank you for helping educators!

I need it because...
In both my English and computer science classes, I give students the opportunity to work in teams and individually on unique projects that they choose.

As they work on the projects they have to reach out to community members to serve as mentors. These people have ranged from chefs, programmers, graphic designers, to politicians.

We have always struggled in our groups to be able to contact and communicate with these mentors. This wonderful project will help make that interaction simpler.

In addition, the VX-1 will add the capability to bring in multiple expert sources, like professional writers, college professors, and others, who would love to donate time but don't have enough spare time to come out to the school.

However, the MOST important reason to bring in new dynamic technology into the classroom is all of the unforeseen ways we can use it.

It is a wonderful tool that will help our students more and more.

I need it because...
I teach a technology/computer class currently at Central Elementary. I would like to be able to do different projects with classrooms around our country where we connect through Skype or other programs to complete different assignments. Right now I try to do it with my iPad but we then have to complete the assignment in groups so that everyone is able to hear and see what is going on. Currently we do math challenges with students from other schools so that we can incorporate math with our technology skills. If we had this Conference Station we could complete the assignment in a whole group setting.

As a media specialist, it is important for me to connect learning to the world outside the classroom. Using this Internet Conference Station, I can help create online discussion groups, partner with local businesses as they provide work-to-school relationships with our students, and help teachers provide real-world discussions with other teachers, authors, or other classrooms.

I would also utilize this to help with chats with authors using Skype and other communication software.

I took a course on virtual field trips using Skype video conferencing where they modeled the use of such a internet conference station. We interviewed a park ranger from Yellowstone
National Park using Skype and a station. In our classroom discussion, I discovered that students I taught in India attended the school on the Yellowstone park. This was true transformational learning and having this station tool would continue such learning experiences where we can make social studies learning global.
Thank you! Brian
