My students need Chromebooks so they can take learning into their own hands!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Technology is the key to differentiation in the classroom! Every student learns in a different way, unique as a snowflake and to best suit the needs of each individual student technology must be harnessed!
My students are a 12:1:1 special needs class.
They struggle with the challenges of emotional disturbance, including bipolar disorder, ADHD, depression and school phobia. My kids live in an urban environment near or below the poverty line, and attend a Title 1 school where the majority receive free lunch. Despite their challenges my students are clever, resilient and hungry for knowledge!
My students need Chromebooks so they can take learning into their own hands! Imagine a classroom where each student can log on to their laptop and view a lesson at their own pace, where they can pause to work out a difficult concept or to take notes. Ideally, this would be a paper-free classroom where students can be assessed after they learn a lesson by using the Chromebooks themselves. And once students complete their lesson they could either go further in the lesson for enrichment or focus on fundamentals with educational games. Each student would be able to learn in their own way, at their own pace and take ownership of their own success.
Many of my students don't live in home where a home PC is available, a resource that many of us take for granted.
By getting technology into the hands of my students you will be increasing their chances of educational success!
