Chromebooks for Equal Access (Round 3)

My students need need assistive technology, specifically Chromebooks, to allow for equal access to grade level materials and learning experiences. Their disabilities should not hold them back from learning. Please help my students succeed!

My Students

I teach in a Title I school in which the majority of our students fall below poverty levels. Many of our students do not have access to technology outside of the school setting. I work daily with special needs students ranging in ability levels. Some of my students read above average, but struggle in other areas of the school day, others read well below grade level. These weaknesses affect each and every area of their lives. One way to level the playing field for these students is to allow the use of assistive technology in all classroom settings. Due to budget cuts, we do not have the resources to put technology into the hands of all of our students.

My Project

I teach a wonderful group of students in grades 4 and 5 who just happen to have a special need which makes them even more unique. These special needs do not stop them from wanting to succeed! This particular group of students range from average to high intelligence to those with mild mental disabilities. These students do not want to take the easy road and want to participate in all classroom activities like their same age peers.

Chromebooks would allow my students to participate in grade level activities, assignments, and projects while breaking down the barriers that disabilities put in their way.

Chromebooks would not only allow for my students to read materials on and above their grade level, but would allow them to participate in group activities and class discussions. Google Classroom assignments would allow for me to scaffold my lessons in a way in which I can reach all students and their varying ability levels. Please help make this dream a reality for my deserving students!
