Gift of May

IS-01 Interactive Whiteboard System

The IPEVO Interactive Whiteboard System, or IS-01, transforms most any flat surface into an interactive whiteboard. Pair IS-01 with a computer and projector, and in just a few simple steps you can draw and annotate on a projected "board" large enough for the entire class — up to 100"!

My classes use the Typi Folio Case and Wireless Keyboard every day. Sixty-one students in my 5-6 grade language arts and reading classes use it to extend the use of the four computers we have in our classroom. With the Typi Folio Case + Wireless Keyboard my students are able to use our iPad as a fifth computer. The additional use of the iPad with the keyboard has made our classroom skill work more accessible for students with all levels of need. Thank you so much!

My students take turns in using the Typi Folio Case with Wireless keyboard to work on iPad based activities. They create their own sentences, encode stories and best of all, they can select an area in the room that they feel comfortable working in. We created a story as a class about the field we went on. Everyone was able to type in a short description of their experience.

As a teacher, I can bring the case with me to meetings to access files and encode notes. Thank you for this wish come true.

I use the document camera on a daily basis. It is used to show how I do close readings of a text, show my thinking process, project the page I am reading, or to take pictures to send and upload to our classroom website. This has become a necessity for my classroom!

Our kindergarten class was practicing how to unscramble words to make simple sentences. Afterwards we wrote the sentences then I had them to practice typing their final drafts.

It was very challenging finding a compatible iPad wireless keyboarding app. I decided to use Notes for temporary practice. If anyone knows of an app that I can use with my kindergarteners on the iPad (with the wireless keyboard), please let me know!

Thanks IPEVO!

My students love having the Folio with the wireless keyboard. The physical keyboard allows them to type at a quicker rate and easily interact with the educational websites and apps that they are using in class. The equipment is very light weight and easy to use. The kids keep commenting how they wish we had a few more for them to use.

Technology is great when you have the right equipment. However, when you have just an iPad as your main source of technology, trying to type on the screen can become difficult. Now, with this cover and keyboard, not only can the teacher complete typing activities more quickly, it also makes it easier for younger students.

We are using the PadPillow Pillow Stands with our kindergartners and special education students. We have not had another broken iPad since we received these to use. I also think this would be a great product for us to use during Professional Development when we have our iPads out for note taking. Thanks for allowing us to receive this very useful gift!

Thank you so much for the wonderful gifts. I was able to reward our Tech Savvy Teachers of the Year. Both teachers will use the Typi Folio case as a part of a technology center in their classroom.
I am overjoyed and they were so happy. Here is a picture of Ms.Hale with her typi folio case.

Wow! We just got our ipads today and your wonderful case was the frosting on the cake! The easel stand and the keyboard made entering all the new info much easier and faster. As I take the ipad home to learn more about it I will feel much better knowing it is well protected, and when the students enthusiasticly start using them it will be nice not to worry about possible damage to the ipad.
Many thanks!

Our school system will be rolling out IPads in all three of our buildings next year. I teach 7th and 8th grade and our 8th grade will be going 1:1, with our 7th graders having use of three Ipads in every classroom. We are a parochial school, so we do not receive any federal funding for technology. We are also on a very tight budget. The only way we update technology is through fundraising. Learning about the IPEVO Wishpool for Ipad cases and keyboards was a timely gift!! Getting these cases to be used for teacher Ipads and classroom IPads will save us enough money to be able to put more devices into our students' hands! I am truly grateful to IPEVO for their generosity in helping us help our students to better prepare for their future. These cases are very stylish and well made, and will last for many years in protecting our devices. After trying to use the keyboard on the IPad using the hunt and peck method, it is much easier using the Typi keyboard included with the case. I cannot thank you enough for improving our school situation and helping me as a teacher to be more procductive!!!!

Thank you so much for making my wish come true. At my school, we are just beginning to add iPad technology into our classrooms. We have had to do a great deal of fundraising to accomplish this. I am learning so much about the different and fantastic apps available to help in the classroom. The case that I received from IPEVO is wonderful! I love the keyboard! I also love that the case can stand up. Those two components combine to make my iPad function like a laptop, something that will no doubt ease my transition to the iPad! Thank you again for the great service you are providing to teachers!

I cannot begin to thank IPEVO enough for donating two Typi Folio Cases + wireless keyboards!

I need it because...
I teach a variety of classes at our school. I teach advanced placement language and composition to juniors as well as high school creative writing and advertising and middle school creative writing. A big part of all forms of successful writing is the revision process. While I model the skills necessary for this crucial part of the writing process, I would love to have the ability to have students actively demonstrate their writing and revision processes. Students learn so much from the collaborative process and from their peers. This product would make it possible for me to provide the opportunity for students to share their work, create and revise on the spot, share the creative process, and to post it on the class website for others to analyze and utilize for their growth as well. This process and the added benefit of the projector will be beneficial in essay, research, and creative writing. I would also love to be able to have students creating ads piece those together and have class input on the spot. I am excited about the myriad applications of this product and the fact that it allows me to use the technology that I already have to increase the interaction as well as the academic and artistic rigor in my classroom through a more student centered approach.

My room does not have a promethean board. I have a document camera that I earned from attending a summer workshop, but must use my own personal projector and speakers. An interactive, savable technology would be very helpful. Lessons could be captured and put online for students to access from home.

I need this for my students! I am integrating interactive technogy to my Honors English 10 and ACT Prep classes. Currently, only those with devices and who have the data for apps can participate; the others use miniature whiteboards or notecards and pens: it would be wonderful if we could all interact simultaneously through one system. Other teachers in my building have this technology, and it has transormed their teaching methods. I want my students to have the best options. Receiving one of these would make me a better teacher. Please!!

I need this for my classroom, since I have a very limited amount of technology. With technology so present in our lives, my classroom needs to be up to date. If you come to my class, you will without fail, see me writing on my non-interactive whiteboard. I would love to see my student engaging in new technology. I would love for myself a more functional method for communicating information to my students. What I have works, but this needs to be corrected. There should be technology like this in every classroom.

Help me help my students!

Thanks for supporting teachers! I appreciate you.

Hello!
I can think of so many reasons that this would be so useful at my school! I am the Instructional Specialist at a K- 12 Special Education center in Savannah and we are always looking for innovative ways to acquire resources and enhance learning for these hard to engage students. One thing that can get nearly every single student authentically engaged is technology! It never ceases to amaze me. This Interactive Whiteboard system would be so helpful to so many of the teachers. My idea for this system is to set it up in some classrooms across the program (in all grades) and then go into those classrooms and demonstrate ways that it can be used in the various subjects and situations. We do not get any Title funding and no one in the building has an interactive whiteboard, but you often hear people daydreaming about having one. This is so reasonably priced that if several teachers also wanted one for their classrooms, the costs would be much more feasible for us that it might actually be possible for all the teachers who wanted one to get one. Thank you so much for this opportunity!

I need it because...
My school is a Title I school located in rural Kentucky. The students I serve are wonderful 5th graders, who work hard every day to achieve their academic goals. While we do our best to accommodate all of their needs, we face the devastating realization that our school has the following rates: 82.5% poverty, with a parental unemployment rate of 17%. These facts and the unthinkable environments many of our students face on a daily basis make the roles of students and educator very difficult. However, even with the trials they may face, our students achieve among the highest in the state and have been given National recognition by receiving a Blue Ribbon award. This interactive system would allow me to become a more innovate teacher and reach my students in versatile ways.

This would be a WONDERFUL tool to have at my classroom's disposal. With the implement of one-on-one student Chromebooks at our school, I feel that I have included technology in ALL of my lessons. Having this system would allow me to project these lesson plans, interact with them, annotate and work with them easily.

I also incorporate "Flipped Videos" in my classroom where I record myself teaching a lesson and then have students watch/re-watch and take notes on the lesson I teach. Having this system would make this process easier because it would allow me to project the lesson and interact with them at the same time.

I see numerous benefits of using this technology in my classroom. I know I would use it in advancing my student in 21st century learning.

I work officially assigned to two schools, Franklinton Elementary as listed on my profile, as well as Long Mill Elementary. I am in charge of developing and delivering technology teacher trainings at my schools. I also deliver model lessons or co-teach with K-5 teachers at these schools (and also assist in the delivery of trainings and lessons at the other 6 elementary schools in the district with my Instructional Technologist teammates). This interactive white board would be an amazing tool to use during our trainings and lessons! Teachers and students will want me to come to their rooms! I hope they do anyway, but this would be a fresh tool to bring into the elementary classroom. Part of my job is GETTING myself into the rooms - opening up collaboration opportunities and staying up on the latest technologies. I think this tool would help me in these aspects of my job and it could travel with me to all the elementary schools of Franklin County! Thank you for considering our team!

I currently work at a second grade teacher at a brand new STEM school. The technology we have available to us in the classroom includes Apple TV which I use on a daily basis with my students. This is great and the students really enjoy being able to see different apps and games on a projector, however, I would love to have the interactive whiteboard system so that the students can more actively engage in lessons across the curriculum. Students will be able to participate in lessons more actively, get up and move around, and not to mention have more fun when learning!

I need it because...
I am a 5th grade math and science teacher. I like to show the students videos and use simulations in both classes to spark their interest and teach them about important concepts. It is difficult to do this, especially in math, because of the arrangement of our classrooms. Students often have to turn their bodies back and forth to see the dry erase board and then to watch simulations/videos. If I want to write on the dry erase board, they have to turn themselves to see the board, then turn back around to see the video or simulation. This would help us save time (and energy) by allowing me to project right onto the dry erase board.

Thank you!
