It’s so important to give back. This month, Second Sight made donations to McCurdy Elementary School in Florissant Missouri – so they could purchase 5 iPad tablets for their 2nd grade classroom.
The teacher Ms. Dietrich said “We are working on developing 21st century skills; however, we are in dire need of technology. Students currently have access to computers once a week for testing. This has created a negative attitude towards technology. With iPads, I hope to motivate students to become 21st century learners and help the world around them.
Having engaging materials, such as iPads, not only gives students extra practice of critical skills, but also makes learning fun. Sadly, in my second grade class, students are already losing sight of the importance of learning due to outside factors. Having iPads will help the students to become invested in their learning and to really take ownership of their learning.”
Parents also understand this important link between learning and education. Ms. Dietrich reported that she received-written thank you cards from every single student, about 25 after getting the iPad tablets!
It’s so nice to see the smiles on the faces of our future leaders! And these thank you letters are a real indication of the impact of our gift. Second Sight is thankful to be in a position to help make a difference in the lives of these students. Take a look. – Todd Deibel, SSS President
