How they are participating

Help us reach our #GivingTuesday goal of $5,000 to give students technology adapted to their needs!

Your gift will help us purchase specialized apps, subscriptions and protective covers for the iPads used by students at the Marklund Day School and Life Skills Academy.

Technology is a part of our everyday lives. How many times a day do you check your phone? Texts, emails, and sometimes even to talk. Do you use your iPad or other tablet at home? Are you on a computer at work? It’s pervasive!

Students today use technology more than ever before. In addition to typing out papers and researching online for projects, students today use apps to complete projects and answer questions. They submit papers online and even chat with classmates outside the classroom. (Sometimes, they even chat about the class!)

Our students use special apps to enhance their learning experiences as well. These apps are adapted to meet the needs and abilities of students with special needs. It’s a part of everyday life, and a part of Marklund’s vision – to make everyday life possible for individuals with profound disabilities.
