For example, Debra, a teacher from a junior high school in West Point in Mississippi explained, “as a Title 1 district (over 90% of all our students in the district qualify for free / reduced lunch), funding is always an issue, so this gift from the Wishpool has been a Godsend to me.” In addition, she told IPEVO that her district would have never thought of having such a constructive tool in her classroom.
Tami, a teacher from an elementary school in Altoona in Indiana told IPEVO how the document camera she received from Wishpool is drastically helping her students with vision problems. She also said, “several students have vision limitations that make it difficult for them to look back and forth between their work and the big screen. While still projecting the image for the whole class, I can connect iPads to the iZiggi's WFfi and those students can see the same thing much closer to their eyes.”
Since launching the Wishpool program, IPEVO continues to support thousands of educators with free technology for their classrooms and has also accumulated thousands of real-world stories and use cases. Wishpool not only supports teachers with the technology needs for their classrooms, it also helps IPEVO to better design products based on the direct feedback from real classrooms.
