I am requesting Chromebooks, because the use of Chromebooks would be very valuable throughout various activities, especially in creating animated stories – not only would students become the author of these stories, they would also be able to act as illustrator, animator, and the voice behind their stories. Another aspect in which the Chromebooks would be beneficial is the preparation of instructional slide shows. Slide shows allow students to teach their peers about a subject; after all, being able to teach a topic demonstrates a deeper level of understanding. The use of Google Apps would also be facilitated by such an addition in the classroom – groups of students could more easily collaborate on research projects. Additionally, Chromebooks allow students to experience many fascinating virtual field trips that may not otherwise be an option or possibility. Finally, students would be gaining the frequent practice necessary to become proficient at touch typing. Computer proficiency is no longer an option – it is a necessity. In today’s world, many college classes are offered at least partially online; hybrid classes even begin as early as high school. Hardly a job exists that doesn’t require computers in some context. To stay competitive in the modern world, we need citizens who innovate, collaborate, and problem solve. In the current climate, none of that is possible without being fluent with computers. To prepare the generation of future innovators in my classroom, access to Chromebooks is essential. Investing in our kids now is an investment in our future later.
