Our high school is located in a 100+ year old elementary school, but the students never let this deter them. They come to class every day prepared to work hard for what they want. These students are some of the most hardworking, determined people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
My student are used to working to overcome adversity in their lives.
I would love to help make one aspect of their lives less of a struggle. I would like to help them do by providing them with the resources they need. We may have not all of the resources that we would like, but we work with what we have. In today's world it, is so important that my students learn to value our planet and how to be good stewards of what we have. By letting the students create their own Eco Club and run a recycling program, they are learning responsibility, leadership, and will create a sense of pride in their community.
Currently, when we have a presentation, project, or paper assigned, the students have to take turns trying to do this on the eight chromebooks we have. We also try to borrow a few spare chromebooks from other teachers if they are free for the day. My students need new chromebooks for our classroom.
They will be thrilled by the opportunity to research their projects and papers on new computers rather than trying to share the eight chromebooks we currently have.
That amount does not even cover a third of my students in each class; the rest of the students must use their personal phones to research and write, which is a huge hassle.
The students will be able to research information and learn how to be more technologically literate at the same time.
Providing more computers for the students to access the wealth of knowledge that surrounds them will not only better enable them to learn facts, it will also give me opportunities to teach digital literacy and citizenship. These computers will also give a morale boost to students that are not used to having nice, new things provided to them.
