Our school was 100% virtual starting March 2020, and just recently transitioned into the hybrid instruction model where some of our students attend in person and others attend 100% virtually. Our school district pushed all technology funding to much-needed student devices. While we are doing a great job providing devices to our student population, it was assumed that teachers either had their own devices that were compatible, or that they would be given the necessary device by their school. Unfortunately, district-issued teacher laptops are not as reliable as we would like them to be. I have been teaching from an outdated school laptop to my Special Education students in the classroom and virtually which frequently crashes during an important lesson. Virtual learning has brought on many issues that we have not faced before--who would have thought I would need my device to run video, Google suite programs, and document programs all at once?! While on Zoom, my students need to be able to see my screen in order for me to deliver specially designed instruction in the areas of Reading, Writing, Math and Social Studies. In addition, we share social-emotional and mindfulness videos to help ease the stress of pandemic learning. The success of my students depend on me having dependable, updated, and compatible technology to support their learning. Unfortunately this is very challenging since I have an older, slow district-provided laptop. Along with teaching my students virtually, I am also my school's Special Education team leader and hold many IEPs with families through Zoom. I love being able to show my families the progress their child is making by sharing data from my screen. This means I need to have numerous windows open and unfortunately since my computer is older it often crashes during these important meetings.
