As a teacher in a low-income school district, my students are faced with many challenges. Students come to school already worried about things going on that they should not have to worry about. I would like to help keep their mind on their studies while they are in my care.
Students will use technology for the rest of their lives and I would love for them to have as much access to being taught how to safely navigate and research the world wide web.
We often take for granted that everyone has access to technology, but realistically most of my students only have access while at school.
The use of technology is almost daily in my classroom. We do have access to a Smart Board to enhance Reading, Math, Language Arts, and Science activities. Chromebooks would allow students to work independently or in small groups. Chromebooks would give my students access to research areas that we have limited access to currently. We have access as teachers to so many great teaching opportunities and resources, but without the proper technology for students we are not able to utilize it.
By donating to this project, you will not only help to improve and increase students attention and focus, you will ultimately help increase academic achievement through the use of technology.
Students will be able to simply focus on academic material at hand, and not worry about waiting on others to finish with the resources they need. Plus this is a technology literate world, any interaction with technology will increase their desire to learn.
