Mr. R. from Mason WV is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology Urgently Needed!!

My students need a Toshiba Satellite laptop computer.

  • $954 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a teacher at a rural high school in West Virginia. Unfortunately, funds for extra materials are often in short supply. I do not have a laptop computer in my classroom! Moreover, the limited amount of computers that we do have at the school are almost always being used by other classes. In order to fully maximize their potential, my students need access to technology. This computer will enable my students to acquire much-needed college preparatory experience by allowing me to incorporate many more tactile, real-world learning experiences into the curriculum. I constantly hear students ask the questions "Why do we have to learn this?" or "What does this have to do with real life?" With this computer, students are better able to grasp important concepts in all academic areas, and are able to link their classes to their daily lives. Many of the assignments that I create are geared towards college prep and the skills necessary for success in higher education, and this computer would allow me to further personalize these lessons for my students. With this computer, I can have students work on group projects by utilizing PowerPoint, Excel, video creation software, and so much more! I can also create individual projects utilizing the vast amount of information available at their fingertips, and allow them to explore potential interests and careers. Should you choose to fund this project, I assure you that this computer will be utilized on a daily basis. Thank you so much for reading this proposal, and thank you for making a difference in the lives of young people!
