2nd Graders Building 21st Century Skills with Chromebooks

My students need a Google Chromebook for technology integration.

My Students

"We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher's hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world." - David Warlick

Our school is Pre-K-2nd grade with over 850 students.

We are a Title 1 school with 53% English Language Learners and 62% free and reduced lunch. Our school runs on a block schedule with eight 50 minutes blocks each day. This allows for small group learning, brain breaks, one-on-one instruction, and instruction from teachers specialized in specific studies. Currently my second grade classroom is equipped with a large television and computer. Technology is not easily accessible to students unless the teacher reserves tablets or space in the technology labs. By providing three Google Chromebooks, students in my class will feel more ownership and involvement with technology. In previous years, my students lit up when they have the opportunity to use technology. Technology makes learning fun, and my students become more motivated when given the opportunity to learn and explore on a computer.

My Project

Students need to learn 21st century skills, and I want to provide them an opportunity to do so. I am excited to utilize donorschoose.org to provide my students with three Google Chromebooks. The main purpose for the Chromebooks is to allow students to be more connected. The internet provides a way for students to connect to the world in ways that were previously impossible. Chromebooks are very intuitive and user friendly, which is perfect for my second grade students. I envision my students using the Chromebooks to support project based learning and exploration. They may also be used as listening centers to improve reading fluency. Educational games and learning tools are also found on the internet. After attending the Google Apps for Education Summit last year, I also plan on using Google Forms, Google Spreadsheets, Google Presentations, and Google Drawings to support collaborative learning amongst my students.

"The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do.

It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn't think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential." - Steve Ballmer
