Chrome Books to Fill the Technology Gap

My students need chrome books to access to the internet for research, to play education games, and to present information.

My Students

I teach in San Francisco, a city fueled by the tech boom. Unfortunately most schools in San Francisco are technology deserts. We are in desperate need of new computers to bring our classroom into the digital age.

I teach an inquisitive and wonderfully diverse group of 28 learners.

They come from many different social and economic backgrounds. My school has about 40% of the students on free or reduced lunch, and my classroom reflects this statistic. One of my favorite things about my students is how they can work together to learn, and when provided with the right opportunities, their strengths shine in a group.

My Project

Google chrome books are inexpensive web-based laptops. They will give my students fast and reliable access to the Internet. The students can use the internet to do research for projects, play educational games, access reading materials, and create.

If fulfilled, this project will help to make information and technology more accessible to my students.

They Will become more technology literate and will be more engaged in their own education. My goal is to build up the level of classroom technology so that my students are more prepared for a world that is more and more dependent on technology.
