Mrs. Kile from Chicago IL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chromebooks for Learning Beyond the Walls of the Classroom!

My students need Chromebooks to create computer stations to help them go beyond their textbooks and other classroom materials. They will be able to conduct research and utilize websites the school has purchased.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is a wonderful combination of English Language Learners, Special Education, and Regular Education students. I work for Chicago Public Schools in a low-income area with 100% of all students receiving free breakfast and lunch.

Having Chromebooks would be a wonderful tool to enhance my students' learning.

Our school's budget is limited by the district and state. Every year the budget has been slashed to the point that the school doesn't have the funds to purchase items we need to help our students be successful.

My Project

The Chromebooks would be set up as workstations and would be used daily in my classroom. Students would be able to access computer programs the school and I have purchased to enhance the individual learn of each student.

These Chromebooks would also be used to conduct research, which would give my students the opportunity to explore the world allowing them to go beyond the classroom walls.

Setting up workstations would allow the students to explore the world through educational websites. They would see the world in new and exciting ways, which would allow my students to view the world globally. The Chromebooks would enable my students to take virtual field trips on many topics of interest that we are studying.

These Chromebooks would open up a whole new world outside the classroom and add a new way of learning in my classroom for all my students.
