21st Century Classroom
My students need a laptop to improve their research skills, writing skills, have more interest in school, and improve their self-confidence.
My students have to be ready to compete in the global market of today. The way they can be successful is to have the knowledge and skills in the changing world of technology. Technology use allows many students to be actively thinking and processing information while at the same time learning.
My classes are filled with culturally,diverse,excited 7th graders, who are ready to take on the world of technology.
I teach at a middle school in a rural part of Texas. 80% of my students receive free lunch. They are engaged during the day in classes and actively participating in after school programs. I enjoy teaching them everyday,because I leave school knowing I made a difference in some child life's that day. I'm making a difference everyday, one student at a time. Most of my students don't have computers at home.
Receiving a laptop for my classroom will allow the students more opportunity to explore research in science. It will increase their self esteem and I hope to motivate them to pursue a STEM(Science, technology, engineering, and math) career. When I'm teaching project-based activities the students will have a more willingness to write and work on their computational skills. The students will get satisfaction with the immediate feedback provided by the computer and the sense of accomplishment and power gained in working with the laptop. The students will learn more by having current information from the computer.
Donations to my project will help me better prepare my students for the future.
This laptop will help their self esteem. Mastering using a laptop will increase the students' sense of self worth. Computer skills will help them get a job one day or to choose a career in the computer industry. When entering the world of work the students will have a basic understanding of how various computer tools work. This project will have an impact on my students by preparing for the workforce.
