Chromebooks for Personalized Learning

My students need Chromebooks so they can use technology in the classroom to support personalized learning.

My Students

My students are amazingly energetic and eager to learn, but they are a diverse group, with different academic and social/emotional needs. Many are English Language Learners or come from low-income households. They crave learning opportunities that reflect their diversity and teach them the academic and social-emotional skills they so desperately need, in authentic and engaging ways.

In my classroom, there are 22 unique, creative, diverse, and brilliant students, each bubbling with potential.

However, there are many barriers that get in the way of them achieving what they are capable of doing. My school is a Minnesota Focus school, meaning it is in the lowest ten percent of schools that receive Title I dollars in our state.

More than half of my students are English Language Learners with little to no exposure to the English language outside of school. Over 90% of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. The student body is very diverse, including African American, Latino, Somali, Asian, Native American, and white students. Our school has a high population of homeless and transient students, and many students have experienced great deals of trauma in their young lives.

My Project

These Chromebooks will allow my students to participate in online adaptive, personalized learning opportunities that differentiate instruction so that students can build reading, language, writing, math, science, and social studies skills. As a teacher, I have access to many great educational resources online that will support my instruction; however, by not having enough technology in the classroom for my students to utilize these curriculum resources, my students are limited in their access to such learning. By adding Chromebooks to my classroom, my students will become more engaged learners as the programs they will be able to use will identify learning gaps and assign lessons and games to address each individual student's missing academic skills. Furthermore, the cases will provide safety and security so that the Chromebooks are able to serve students this year and beyond, the wireless presenter will allow students to share their work on our classroom projector so that they can build speaking skills, and the interactive 120 pocket chart will correlate with their online math learning program to bring their learning beyond the screen.

This project will allow students to build and practice the academic standards they are learning in a fun and engaging way that will develop technology learning as well.

Students' lives will change for the better because this project will help students to learn beyond what I directly teach them in the classroom by allowing each and every one of them to work at a level that is perfect for their instructional level when at independent work time. By utilizing technology to support individual learning, students will learn more and the achievement gap will be lessened for every one of them!
