My students need tablets to increase their technology literacy and to close the achievement gaps in math in our under-served minority groups. With these tablets in the classroom, I will be able to create individual modules personalized to each student. As technology continues to become more prevalent throughout the world, it is important that my students develop technology literacy. Our school is a Bring Your Own Device school; however, there are still students that do not have access to their own devices. By providing technology they wouldn't have access to in our current setting, the path to closing those achievement gaps becomes much easier. With our current math curriculum, many resources are available only online. By opening the chance for my students to access these resources, their chances of understanding and applying the material while developing technology literacy skills increases dramatically. During our current STEM accreditation process, technology has been emphasized as a key pillar of their platform. In a city that provides countless STEM career opportunities, this added resource would certainly provide my students with skills and lessons needed to succeed outside my classroom.
