Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

Every morning, my students have the unique opportunity to log into their own Chromebooks and explore learning websites. My students use a typing website to increase their typing speed as well as learning websites to improve their ELA and math skills.

We are in an urban district where technology is hard to come by.

My students love learning, and now that we are using computers everyday, the participation has increased. We spend about 75% of the day on the computers researching, typing papers, and even doing our math problems. When my students need a synonym, they google it. When we are reading about an animal they have never heard of, they google it. One student is even making a PowerPoint presentation on the John Hancock building just because he was interested in it!

My Project

Fortunately, we were able to raise money to get a class set of Chromebooks through donorschoose.org, and we are now looking to enhance our experience! Since the students are new to technology, the mouse on the computer is difficult for them to use. I would like them to have the experience of using a mouse and learning all of the functions of right clicking! We are also in need of headphones because the PARCC end of year test requires students to learn from videos. Having the headphones would also allow students to listen to peaceful music while they are doing their work. Having a calm classroom environment helps learning so much! I am requesting 25 mice and 25 earphones, one for each computer.

My students have learned so much about technology in a short period of time.

I am so impressed how easy it is for them to pick up on new skills. Having a mouse for each computer will help them learn computer skills even faster. Having headphones for each computer will allow them to take their learning to the next level by having access to websites with sound. Also, they can enjoy their time on the computer if they are able to listen to videos and music.
