Chrome Crisis!!

My students need 1 Chromebook in the classroom, so that half my class will to have more access to learning through technology at one time during the school day.

My Students

"Tech gives the quietest student a voice. " The quiet student who so kindly shares the last computer in class, or who volunteers to sacrifice half of their time, or to forfeit their tech time completely, so that someone else may have the luxury, is something that can be taken for granted.

The families of my school work hard to provide their children with the basics, and sometimes still fall short.

My students who have clearly developed their work ethics from their families, come to school determined to work hard, and enthusiastic to absorb as much knowledge as a days work will allow. This year I have the pleasure of working with 31 students, 16 of whom are 4th graders and the other 15 are 5th graders. I see the hunger in their eyes every morning and I want to feed their desire for education and allow them to grow as learners. However, with a combo class students are given only half of the attention a single grade classroom would get. As a teacher, I struggle finding meaningful work that allows students to continue learning and growing while the other half of the class requires my attention. Additional technology in the class will help.

My Project

With an additional Chromebook in the classroom I will have a set of computers for exactly half of my class. My class is currently one Chromebook short from allowing half of my class access to technology at once. Since we are balancing work and teacher attention of two different grade levels in the combo class, the Chromebook will allow one half of the class to receive direct instruction from me, while the other half of the class can work independently through the use of technology. Students will be able to take electronic quizzes and assessments, they will be able to increase their understanding and fluency of technology, and they will be able to use online resources to continue their practice of core standards through the use of online programs such as Khan Academy, Front Row, or News ELA.

An additional Chromebook in the classroom will allow a half class set of computers to use thought the day.

The Chromebook will allow my students to work independently on publishing work, increasing technology fluency, and continuing standard practices on electronic sites. This will allow one half of my class the opportunity to work independently on skills necessary for college and career readiness. This will allow my quiet student who kindly shares the last computer to finally have their own.
