My Students

Have you ever become engrossed in a new topic through technology? My students love to use Chromebooks and they're so engaged in the task when they're busy on these devices. My school consists of about 600 students coming from a middle to upper-middle-class neighborhood. I've been teaching for 21 years now and one thing that rings true for my school is that the students are enthusiastic and have a strong desire for knowledge.

As many schools in other districts have Chromebooks regularly available for their students, my school has a limited number as we are small and technology funding is not regularly available.

In order to use them, we have to sign up for a Chromebook cart that all science classes have access to and more often than not, it is being used by another teacher. Having Chromebooks that are only meant for my classes, will complement my teaching to a level much higher than without them. The Chromebooks are excellent tools for developing scientific skills in problem-solving​, presenting information and collaborating.

My Project

We are just one Chromebook cart away from having a Chromebook available for each student in science. My students have been regularly completing inquiry-based lessons where they are discovering many new concepts- Climate Change, Ocean Acidification and Thermal Energy. Chromebooks enable my students to access the information more effectively and learn the material on a deeper level. Currently, however, we must sign-up for a department-wide Chromebook cart that might not be available when we need it. We've had to adjust teaching our units based on this calendar. Please help in building a cart that can be counted on any day of the school year.
