Mrs. Colley from Saint Louis MO is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Agents Of Change: Moving Towards A Paperless Classroom!

My students need individual tablets to help support their instruction so we can move towards a paperless classroom.

My Students

This will be my first year at this school, but I already have big plans for my students. I am teaching ELA to the 5th grade students and I want to try and have a paperless classroom.

I believe we must encourage technology in the classroom as much as possible.

Students find it engaging and I find their experience using various online and digital resources helps students with grammar, writing, and reading comprehension skills.

Unfortunately, I do not have a class set of tablets or chrome books to help make this possible. While our school is working hard to make sure we have a 1:1 correspondence with technology for students in testing grades, we currently have to share. Having my own class set of individual tech devices would allow me to use the Google suite with a high degree of efficacy, particularly when it comes to peer editing. It would demonstrate green practice within our classroom and help eliminate paper waste.

My Project

Having access to individual technology on a daily basis will help my students during their independent work time--they will be highly engaged in practicing their skills with digital resources. Additionally, we will be able to do all of our written work using the Google suite. Our curriculum demands written responses to their reading, research, and final performance projects which require production elements (slide show presentations, PSA's, etc), all of which can be done on their tablets and stored so it is easily accessible without the mess of paper.

Using this technology will allow my students to interact with each other, help facilitate peer review, and streamline grading and feedback.

In particular, the tablet I chose has a keyboard that allows my students practice with typing, which is a very valuable skill!
