Help me give my students the technology they deserve with the Microsoft Surface Go 10. I will use this to help improve my teaching skills and be able to better implement technology within our outdated classroom.
Hello! I am a teacher at a Title I school, that has a unique program for kids with disabilities. This year, I transferred from the self-contained classroom back into the general education classroom (at the same school) and noticed that the needs may be different, but my students still have many struggles to overcome in order to be successful!
My students have a wide variety of skills we are working on, one, in particular, is the ability to do their math facts and read fluently.
This is a group of students who are academically at several different levels, yet are all in the same classroom (which is typical of most classrooms, today). Meeting all of the needs of my students, while continuing on with the curriculum is hard for several of my kids. My students that need to be challenged are left to do more independent work, and my struggling students are provided with more one-on-one attention they need to be successful! I am hoping to even the playing field and have the ability to meet more of my students' needs.
The use of whiteboards and technology is almost a daily activity in my classroom, especially in math. The whiteboards allow me to see exactly what my students are doing, as well as provide an easy place for them to show and share their work. Since Smart-boards have been introduced, it has made the job of showing work and using the whiteboard to its full potential. However, in a school that is using outdated technology, it makes it hard to effectively teach my kiddos. They have to use whatever programs happen to be working at that time, and have to frequently adjust what we're doing. By having the Microsoft Surface Go 10, I will be able to use technology more efficiently so that lessons can run more smoothly and be even more effective.
By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, but you will also ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand, and not whether their materials are going to work. Plus in this technology literate world, any interaction with updated technology will increase their literacy as well as their desire to learn and use the new technology! My students will be able to avoid all of these problems and focus on increasing their learning!
