Chromebooks for Individualized Learning

My students need four Chromebooks in the classroom to access our individualized learning software and develop technology skills.

My Students

When I was in elementary school, I went to the computer lab once a week to play Oregon Trail. Not much has changed for my students, who only get to attend once a week. However, they do have amazing programs to play that will help their learning. They just need additional access to computers.

I teach at a Title I school in a urban setting.

We are lucky enough to have two computer labs. However, our computer labs are shared with 30 classrooms. This means you can only get into the computer lab once a week for 30 minutes. Having students practice typing once a week, does not help develop students who are fluent in technology. In addition, it does not allow me to fully utilize the wonderful computer programs provided to the school. Our students have access to programs that teach them English, typing, reading, math, and writing at their own learning level. These programs could help my struggling students even more and challenge my high students, if we just had more access to them. My goal is bring Chromebooks into the classroom, so they can access these programs every day to accelerate their learning while developing necessary technology skills.

My Project

Students learn at different speeds; some students need more time with a concept and some need less time. I plan to use the Chromebooks to help me meet the need needs of my students by providing individualized instruction through blended learning. Students will receive instruction through me as the teacher and then practice the skill on the computer through our software programs. Then, taking my observation of their learning and the data gathered from the computer, I can form my students into small groups to either reinforce their learning and provide additional practice or take their learning to the next level and challenge them more. Small groups of students will be on these computers every day getting the assistance they need to be successful in school. They will be engaged in programs to teach them English, reading, math, writing, typing, and other computer skills.

This donation will change the way I am able to teach, by providing my students individualized learning while allowing me to work with my students in smaller groups.

It will also provide data on my students' learning, so I know what students to pull together and work on certain skills. Instead of computers being a once a week special thing, it will become a daily part of learning. My students will be able to see computers as a tool to help them learn, instead of a fun weekly activity.
