Having a set of Chromebooks in my classroom would enable me to provide a more personalized learning experience for my students. Due to extreme gaps in reading abilities, I teach my class using differentiated instruction. This means that my students are broken into small groups based on their reading levels, and I rotate among the groups, working with each of them for a portion of the class period. For this reason, it is particularly important for me to have technology to supplement my students’ learning while I am not working with them directly. A class set of Chromebooks would allow my students to engage in much more personalized, productive, and interactive assignments while working independently. There are a myriad of language arts curriculum online that address individual student deficiencies. Through Google classroom, I can assign students personalized projects that focus on their specific needs. For example, if I have two students—one who need practice in eighth grade reading comprehension, and another struggling with third grade vocabulary—it makes little sense to give them the same assignment. With the Chromebooks, I could give the first student a research project requiring him to synthesize various texts and the second student an online vocabulary activity tailored to words he has not yet mastered. Additionally, as an underfunded school with the majority of students coming from low-income households, many of our kids do not have access to technology at home. Incorporating technology in the classroom would give these kids access to more learning materials and familiarize them with the technology necessary to set them up for success in the modern world.
