My Students

My students are the hardest working kids in our school. They come to school ready to learn everyday!

I work in a high poverty school and most of our students don't have access to computers at home.

This sadly puts them at a huge disadvantage. While our district has adopted the "Bring Your Own Device" to school - my students simply don't have one. Compared to other students across the district, my students are losing valuable skills because I cannot successfully integrate technology into my lessons.

My Project

If we had a new laptop in our classroom, my students would be able to get on-line easily to research or use applications that allow them to create videos or make a computer program using the Code Monkey application. Enrichment or remediation would be easier because I would be able to assign on-line activities and tutorials for those students requiring additional help. My assignments would integrate technology and allow students more choices in how to complete them. Envision learning plant parts through either making an electronic book. A laptop would be used daily and keep my students on an even playing field. My students cannot adequately learn how to use technology if they do not have access to it. Our computer lab is not always available due to high stake testing or adequate time slots. As a result, my 18 students are forced to share the computers in our classroom.

With a laptop, I will be able to have students research and choose how they want to showcase their learning.

They could use the laptop to create a movie on a science concept or they could use the laptop as a tool in their presentation.
