Mrs. McIntyre from Roscoe IL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chromebook Curiosity

My students need a chromebook and a digital camera.

My Students

Question. Research. Create. These are words that should be a part of every students academic vocabulary.

My students are curious and love the thrill of the chase for knowledge.

They, like many others in their generation, are technologically savvy and are drawn to technology as if compelled by a magnet, but the amount of technological resources available in our school limits the opportunity that my students have to do the research that they enjoy.

My Project

This is a baby step toward getting enough Chromebooks to fill a classroom. Ultimately, I would love to have an entire set. Until we get a full set, however, we will use this device to do center research projects, to allow students to work on math fluency, and to collaborate using Google docs with their teammates. We will also be using this Chromebook to do quick formative assessments to better guide instruction. The digital camera will allow students to add their own images to their created projects. They will be able to put their own special "stamp" on their creations.

The Chromebook will be used often in my classroom, but moreover, my students will benefit for the knowledge that there are people in the world who care selflessly about others.

Thank you.
