Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is full of energy and activity. I utilize interactive notebooks, discussions, and movement in order to keep them engaged and alert. I want my students to become proficient at using the computer appropriately and prepared to use technology whenever necessary.

My students are energetic, wonderful young people who go to a school that is full of history and excitement.

They are eager to learn new things and ready to implement more technology into their education. Many of them do not have the ability to bring their own technological devices to school because their families do not have the excess income to provide such things, so they need extra help in order to use technology in my classroom.

My Project

The students will use Chromebooks for a wide variety of assignments. They will have the ability to take what I have taught them and then navigate their understanding on computer documents, research papers, and virtual field trips. The Chromebooks will give them access to parts of our world they have never seen before, through my guidance. Google has made it so we can keep the students completely engaged through the use of their resources available to teachers and students online.

My project will make a difference because it will give students access to technology they would not have otherwise.

Although technology is utilized daily throughout the world, not every student at BHS can afford for that to be their current reality. Through the donation of Chromebooks to my classroom, we can give them that access.
