I NEED YOUR HELP!
* I am super excited about the new Google Cardboard Goggles I now have for my classroom, but I am unable to fully integrate them into daily lessons because of a lack of devices. If, and only if, you are already planning on upgrading your phones this holiday season, PLEASE consider donating your old smartphones AND/OR an iPod Touch (and charger if available) to my classroom. My mom already gave me her old iPhone 5 so we at least have 1 to share at all times! 🙂 The kids are SUPER excited and some have already experienced the bacteria cells up close, explored inside an animal cell, and even climbed Mt. Everest! They ask me everyday if we can use the goggles and I want to say yes, yes, yes! If you have any old phones and chargers laying around the house or in junk drawers, please help me get my students more connected to their learning and donate them! Email me if you need help on resetting the old phone back to factory settings. I will be more than happy to help and figure it out for you. Thank you so much!
**UPDATE- I’ve learned that the iPod Touch will do exactly what we need as well…without the extra cost of an iPhone. If you have any laying around or know someone with connections as Apple, put in a good word for our science class! 🙂 This is a great option to add to your child’s Santa Wish List, too…for those parents who want all the thrills of technology without the need for an actual phone service/data plan!
(New 32 GB=$199, 128 GB=$299) I’ll be adding it to my wish list as well!
