Chrome Crazy!

My students need easy access to internet-based research and word processing tools like Google; these two Chromebooks make that possible in my classroom.

My Students

We want our students to learn. We want our students to succeed. An easy way to do this is to provide them with the tools they need to accomplish both of these tasks. Since many of my students do not have computers at home, Chromebooks in my classroom offer a solution for both.

Our students are not unique; they are a blend of all types of backgrounds, but the increasing common denominator is the lack of technological tools they have available at home.

No computers, no printers, no Internet; these problems make it very difficult for a teacher like me to assign computer-based projects. I would like to be able to help my students compete with other students around the nation that are, in many cases, learning solely through technology. As my classroom moves into the future, providing students with Chromebooks to use in my classroom will help me to bridge the technological gap for my students. Chromebooks are an ideal solution because the students that did not have access to a computer or Internet at home would likely choose not to complete the project at all, and now I will be able to help them see that there are other options for success. They will see that I will not allow them to fail simply because they don't have the tools to succeed.

My Project

At the end of the school year, our school has students complete a web-based research project where they delve more deeply into the world of a famous person from history. We are trying to make the history relevant for them, and this project really helps accomplish this task. Students often return to my class years after they have been gone and talk about how they loved that project. Having several Chromebooks in my classroom will enhance this project because researching will be easier. They will be able to create their projects directly into the Google Drive, and they will be able to access their account from any location--not just the computer where they "saved" the work. I really do not see a more practical gift to a classroom than this one to help move a classroom out of the Dark Ages and into the technological wave that we are currently riding.

We want all of our students to have equal opportunities, and Donors Choose helps make this a reality for my classroom.

Contributing to this project will influence hundreds of students for years to come; this year alone, 270 students will come through my classroom and have access to these machines. Not all will choose to use them, but I will feel better knowing that I've tried my hardest to provide my students with tools to help make their scholastic journey more successful.
