Mrs. M. from Roseville CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bear with Me, One More Time

My students need a Chromebook for 21st Century technology in their hands each and everyday.

My Students

The computers in my classroom are starting to hibernate with the bears! These machines are so tired and not able to be updated any further. Sadly, we are losing our access to the Internet for research in the classroom.

My 35 fifth grade students attend a public school that does not qualify for any special funding.

The population in my class is varied and hungry to learn. We are limited by outdated technology and lacking funds to replace all of the old hardware. In my classroom, students are assigned to study groups to help them in science, history, and math. If each group had a Chromebook, all students could use the technology to research and enhance their curriculum by immediately seeking answers to questions that arise, as they work together on mastering the content for each subject area.

My Project

The greater depth of understanding and the immediate results of the use of these devices will allow a more varied access to information and will take group discussions to a higher level. Students can also use the technology to create documents to share with other groups. I am asking for one more Samsung Chromebook to allow students immediate access to Internet sources to support our studies. Children have so many questions and we lack the computers to allow easy searching for answers.

Please help my class gain access to the wonderful offerings for children on the Internet, by donating to the project to buy one more Chromebook for our classroom.

It will mean a great deal to students from diverse backgrounds, various socioeconomic levels, and a wide spread of ability levels.
