I teach global history to an extraordinary group of bright and energetic 10th graders at a public school in the Bronx.
Sadly, our physical building closed on March 13.
Students have been distance learning since March 23. Teachers deliver instruction through Google Classroom using a combination of live instruction, written assignments, and individual feedback. Students use Google docs to complete written work and receive feedback.
Our school issued a Chromebook to every student who needed one. This technology is the lynchpin that makes distance learning possible.
My goal as a teacher is to provide seamless instruction during this tumultuous time.
Some students can no longer use their Chromebooks due to a broken charger.
Our school building is currently inaccessible, so it is impossible to fix or replace these devices. This represents a major instructional disruption for students.
Students have instead been offered a loaned iPad from the district. However, the iPads operate with a touchscreen rather than a keyboard. They are not an effective tool for researching, writing, and revising a five-paragraph history essay.
Please help me replace their chargers and get their Chromebooks working again!
