Bring Technology to the Classroom Part 2

My students need a Kindle Fire HD Tablet for research purposes and chance to read E-books in the classroom.

My Students

Technology is growing and student are using it everyday to better themselves in school, we just want to make sure our students aren't left behind.

We are a specialized special education program in a Title 1 school with over 60%of our school population on free and reduced lunch.

The students in our program are especially impacted emotionally and really struggle with academics. Dealing with everyday life is a struggle. High School is already challenging and added to these struggles these students already encounter, school can be debilitating. Our goal is to provide the stability and structure needed to add some balance. On top of that, we work hard to create an environment of success. To do this, there are tools needed and technology is just another component. With such technology, we can set these kids up for academic success and give them a leg up when they seem to always be down. It is already a struggle and many of our students do not have the right kind of access at home, let alone enough access in school to keep them moving forward in a school setting. Your help is a way to help those that need it the most.

My Project

We are asking for a Kindle table to go along with our classroom iPad mini. While we have a couple of tabletop computers they are older models, we want to expand our program and allow our students a chance to access new technology for research and academic support. Many of our students don't have access to many current technological advantages at home, often they can also be left behind in public school. Having access to adaptive technology would be beneficial for our lower level learners so they are not left behind.

Working at a poverty ridden school with major budget cuts, technology is even more important now as a resource for students' education process as it has been in the past.

We don't want our students left behind.
