Mrs. Woodward from Springfield OR is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Computer Is a Window to the World

My students need 3 Chromebooks in order to access all of the tools available to them for research, online communication and collaboration, and to see the world beyond their small scope.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students come from a diverse community. Like most cities, ours has its depressed neighborhoods; my students come from those areas.

As children of lower income my students have had certain disadvantages that are available to more affluent students.

Despite these disadvantages they have a love of learning and a desire to succeed.

My students would benefit from gaining a solid chance to succeed. With your help we can provide them with that chance. The knowledge that people in the world are supporting them will also increase their confidence.

My Project

These 3 Acer Chromebooks will be used in my classroom in more ways than I can count. In Language Arts they will be used for online research, essay writing, producing book trailers, presentations online collaboration and communication with other students, and plethora of activities too numerous to count.

In social studies, we will examine the world via the internet; we will design projects, and enhance our knowledge of geography.

The internet is a window to the world outside our small community; my students need that window to see their true potential. With a computer in each student's hands, learning will be more engaging and efficient.
