Help me give my students Chromebooks to aid in student learning, writing, and researching. We also need a surge protector to safely charge the laptops between use.
My English Literature and Language classroom is full of students who have the drive and dedication to succeed in today's competitive society. But, they also come from a wide range of backgrounds. Many of them experience financial hardships, even to the point of homelessness.
My philosophy is to not just prepare students for another test, but to prepare them for anything--that takes developing their critical and analytical thinking, reading, and writing skills.
Not only is my school a low-income majority, but also was severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Even one year later, we still feel the painful effects of the devastation. Some students are not back into their homes even today.
My students need access to Chromebooks throughout the year, from writing and revising essays to research projects to completing daily assignments. However, having access to Chromebooks and wireless mice extends beyond my English classroom as well.
In a tech-driven society, my students need to learn and develop their technology skills and literacy in order to compete and thrive in the future.
We currently have 3 class laptops to share amongst 22-30 students. While my district has a BYOD (bring your own device) policy, the fact is that many of my students cannot afford this and rely on school-provided technology. Having daily access to Chromebooks and wireless mice will ensure that my students have the means necessary to achieve success not only in my classroom, but beyond it as well.
