Mr. Gaun from Brooklyn NY is requesting computers & tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Another Slice of Raspberry Pi Computers!

My students need computers to get the 21st century education they deserve. This is a kit of 5 very affordable desktop computers that will be used to setup a math/technology center in a G2 classroom.

My Students

I'm a physical education teacher at a Title 1 elementary school in NYC, with 77% of our students receiving free or reduced fee lunch. I also support my colleagues with technology integration.

My students need modern computers to build the IT and Math skills they need to help them thrive in the modern world.

I have done a similar project in one of my other second grade classrooms and it has been a very big success.

My Project

This is based on a now completed project I did for one of my G2 classes, and now I would like to bring it to a second classroom.

Linux is free, as in freedom.

There are literally thousands of high quality educational games, tools, and resources available for absolutely free. The only catch is you have to have hardware that is powerful enough to run the software.

The Raspberry pi 3 is an affordable computer designed for use in the educational environment. If this project is funded, we will expand the free software that we can use to support learning in the classroom with programs like sonic-pi, Gimp, libre office, Gcompris, TuxMath, and Scratch.

On top of the huge library of Open-source educational programs, our students will also have access to many high quality online resources. These include prodigy math game, Star fall, ABCya, PBS KIDS, Khon Academy, Brain POP, tumble books, and that’s just to name a few!
