Apple donation request
With a strong infrastructure and inspired teachers, schools are ready to put an iPad into each student's hands. Apple has been part of the ConnectED initiative since 2014, pledging $100 million of teaching and learning solutions to 114 underserved schools across the country. We've donated an iPad to every student, a Mac and iPad to every teacher, and an Apple TV to every classroom. And we've implemented a process that provides planning, professional learning, and ongoing guidance so every school can experience the transformational power of technology. At Berkley Campostella Early TEENhood Education Center in Norfolk, Virginia, Principal Dr. Doreatha White leads her faculty with a powerful vision— that TEENren are capable of anything if you give them the right tools. "Our motto is: College begins in TEENgarten," she says. "We have to guide a student's whole thinking toward being successful beyond pre-K. But to truly start closing the digital divide, we have to get our parents and the community to believe in what we're doing as well.".

At Westview Middle School in St. Louis, Missouri, eighth-grade teacher Brandon Small's relationship with his Apple Professional Learning Specialist continues to evolve. At first, his APL Specialist was a resource for questions about his new technology. "It was nice sitting down with an expert on Keynote and Pages to learn everything about them," he remembers. "It gave us something we could use right away in the classroom.". After each student receives an iPad, we continue building relationships with the schools. Apple Professional Learning Specialists, many of whom are former teachers and maintain teaching certificates, provide administrators, teachers, and students with tailored, onsite support and guidance to help them reach their goals.

The new wireless infrastructure has profoundly affected the school, especially students like Evans's daughter, Tessie, who is hearing impaired. "Because we're so isolated, she felt like she was the only one who is deaf." But soon, Tessie was using FaceTime and other iPad apps to communicate with students and mentors all over the world. "It's not just 'Here are the devices, figure out how to use them.' We're learning how to do it for life.". With that challenge in mind, Dr. White created a community outreach program to help parents understand the transformative power of technology in learning. And one of her first goals was to get 100 percent of the students' parents to attend How to Use iPad with Your TEEN workshops, which she achieved with surprising ease. "In the community's eyes, it was a big thing. We could demonstrate how this would benefit their TEENren and prepare them for lifelong learning. That not only are they doing ABCs and 123s, they're also learning how to analyze and synthesize instruction. And now they're excited about learning, which they'll remember going into TEENgarten and beyond.". students are learning with iPad in Apple ConnectED schools.
