My students need a new MacBook Pro for updated technology in the classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Education is limitless, yet many students have limits placed on them by factors out of their control. My school is trying to update our technology to offer our students more ways to express their knowledge and creativity.
My students are amazing.
I teach a very diverse student population. I not only have students of various ethnic backgrounds, but I also teach students of various economic backgrounds. Through our school's technology integration, our school has expanded the possibilities of many of our assignments. Our classrooms now have students working on devices like an iPad or iPod. This allows our students to become successful 21st century learners while also sparking an increased engagement for learning. Students create videos, interactive presentations, detailed reports, and various other projects and have been able to expand their knowledge through the use of modern technology. The school and district have provided support for the participating teachers, increased our wifi capacity for these students, and organized professional development to enhance my lessons. This has led to a huge increase in students' engagement, participation, and work completion.
This MacBook Pro will open up some amazing activities and learning opportunities to all of my students. Students can edit and create videos, projects, and "book trailers" to encourage each other to read a good book. I can demonstrate how to create projects by projecting from the laptop to my big screen for all to see. The learning is multiplied when students create and share while having fun.
Limitless opportunities do not come along everyday.
This updated laptop will allow many students to become successful 21 century learners, not just this year, but for years to come. Students will receive opportunities to engage in learning in ways they never had before. Education, like our world, is rapidly changing because of technological improvements. Please help bring about a positive change.
