Project Title: iPad to the Rescue
Preschool Innovation Grant Recipient

Preschool teachers engage students in hands-on activities in 5 developmental areas: communication, cognitive, personal/social, adaptive and motor to meet IECE standards. An innovative way to meet standards and increase student knowledge is through technology. Project iPad to the Rescue uses iPads in small group and in learning centers allowing preschoolers to interact with math apps. This grant will focus on student knowledge of shape identification, number recognition and one to one correspondence and the impact technology can have with these readiness skills.
