In the Honor's Program at the University of North Alabama, Seniors must take on a Capstone Project. This project is a research project that must somehow relate with your major. As my senior year began approaching, I began to speak to our honor's director about what kind of project I wanted to start. I am an Elementary Education major, so it needed to relate to education. After we got out for Christmas, I got an e-mail from the honor's director asking if I was interested in working on a technology project with Dr. Katie Kinney. Since I have known Dr. Kinney since I was young, I jumped on the chance and was so excited to begin. The only problem was that I did not have an iPad. How was I supposed to do research on iPads in education without an iPad? I went through my finances and realized that there was no possible way that I could afford to buy an iPad. As I began to get discouraged, someone suggested sending an e-mail to Apple and asking for one. What could it hurt? After speaking to my honor's director and Dr. Kinney, I went for it. I sent an e-mail to the CEO and Vice President of Marketing and said a little prayer. Counting on a miracle, I began to research different apps and ways that iPads were being used in the schools. The day before I made my trek back to UNA, I received a phone call. An Apple representative was on the other line. He told me that the Apple executives had been so impressed with my e-mail that they were willing to let me use an iPad for my research. This iPad must be returned after my project ends, but I was so grateful to be given the chance to borrow an iPad for the time being. I am so excited to be picking up this iPad this week! Not only has Apple provided me with an iPad to enhance research, but they have given me a huge opportunity to be successful in my research. The process of just getting started has been so exciting, and I cannot wait to dive into this project. Not only will our research be presented to faculty and parents of Kilby Laboratory School, but Dr. Kinney and I hope to take it across Alabama and hopefully nationwide. I am so thankful for this opportunity, Apple's great support, and Kilby for opening their doors and allowing me to work with the Kindergarten students.
