My students live in an economically disadvantaged area. It is a working class neighborhood, and many of the parents do not speak English. It is a challenge for many parents to put food on the table, especially in the current economy. Many parents do not have the time, resources, education, or language skills to assist their children in the learning process. Although they want their children to succeed, the means to that end are not always readily available. The students are kind, inquisitive, and bright, and excited about learning!
My students are at that essential age in life when they need to start thinking about their future careers. Technology is an essential tool that must be mastered in order to stay current and competitive in the workplace. I for, we do. Or have the funds at our school to keep up with modern technology at school. My students need Chromebooks in order to have the opportunity to learn crucial technology skills. Everything these days is done through the use of technology and they need experience and practice in using it. The Chromebooks are to meet our needs as a STEM school.
