My students come from diverse backgrounds. Many come from broken homes or high poverty but they are determined to be the best they can be. They work hard and are excited to learn. Many of my students are in school for the first time and it is hard for them to be organized. Many of their parents chose our school, so their children would have the opportunity to get a better, more well-rounded education. Our students not only focus on academics, they also learn about social responsibility and character education.
My students will use these materials to complete individualized goals and for working on project-based learning. I chose a touch screen Chromebook because many of my students can not use a mouse. The touchscreen will give them the same opportunities as the other students.
Project-Based and Individualized learning is very important in my classroom and at my school.
Having these laptops would help to ensure all the children have an equal opportunity to access technology. As 21st century learners, my students need to be able to navigate technology and work collaboratively. These laptops will make all this possible and more.
