Mrs. Ortman from N Las Vegas NV is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chromebooks are the Way to the FUTURE!

My students need these chromebooks to help broaden their horizons and to explore things on the internet.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My lovable, energetic first graders from North Las Vegas are eager and excited to use computers! They come to me with little experience using technology so I would like to broaden their horizons by exposing them to the use of technology. I teach in a low income community where students don't have the money to buy computers or tablets. They are not able to explore and search for things on the internet. I would like to give them the opportunity to do those things.

My Project

Technology is a great way for students to explore and learn from the internet. The chromebooks that I am asking for will be used for exploration, educational videos, reading lessons that can only be done on computers, and for learning how to type. Technology is all over now and children of all ages are expected to know how to use it. Teaching my first graders how to use a computer to type, look things up, or just to explore is one thing I would love to be able to give them.

My students will be able to complete reading projects and search the internet for writing projects that we work on throughout the year.
