Help me give my students one Chromebook to work towards our goal of a 1:1 classroom.
My students are hard working, motivated, future leaders who love technology. Their school is diverse with many different economic backgrounds. In order to prepare students for college, our district has created and assigned a Google account to each student as well as implementing Google Classroom to help streamline their education. However, our school is still lacking all the needed resources in order to fully utilize what Google has to offer. As a result, many students have encountered problems with accessing their accounts and I am not able to fully utilize the teaching opportunities through Google. As of now, generous donors from donorschoose.org have provided my students with several Chromebooks. However, there is a waiting list for students to access those Chromebooks and not enough for each student to have one during each class period. This leads to frustration for those who are not able to get one.
Despite this, my students are eager to learn, be successful, and college ready.
They want and deserve the tools to achieve in all areas academically without frustration and to help them stay engaged.
With each student having a Google account and many teachers utilizing the educational opportunities through the use of these accounts, the student computers available are in high demand before and after school. As of now, I have several Chromebooks available because generous donors have provided them for my students. This helps ease the traffic for the computers. However, I have over 100 students who are in need of access to this technology and who prefer the Chromebooks to a computer. It is my ultimate goal to become a 1:1 classroom with Chromebooks. In addition, our current computer lab is outdated and does not house enough computers for each student. The ones that do work are not reliable, crash often, and are not up-to-date for certain educational programs to work. Each Chromebook that I am able to get for my students is one less student that has to wait for a computer and each Chromebook leads to my students becoming 1:1 with technology while in my classroom.
Your donation of one Chromebook will help my students see that academics matter, understanding and knowing technology matters, and that they matter.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
