My students need Chromebooks, a laptop storage tray, and a surge protector.
My students are English Language Learners from a high poverty area. We are a Title I school with approximately 90% of our school population receiving free or reduced lunch. Some of our students are part of the Backpack Buddy Program that provides them with food for the weekend. Most of my students are the eldest of their family and are a resource for their younger siblings when doing homework. They should continue to be a fountain of knowledge for their family and serve as role models for their younger siblings.
They are bright students who are captivated by the capabilities of technology and love hands-on activities.
My students should not be limited in their achievements because of their economic status, they should have access to the tools they need to succeed. I want to instill in them that they are capable of anything if they set their mind to it and work hard to achieve it.
Technology is ever-evolving and by allowing students to have more exposure to computers we are inevitably preparing them for the future. My students love using technology and using computers keeps them motivated and engaged. By having Chromebooks readily available in my classroom, students will be able to utilize them when needed. Some science topics are hard for my students to comprehend, because they are not able to experience them first-hand. With Chromebooks, we will be able to conduct virtual experiments that would be extremely difficult to conduct in a school setting.
Chromebooks are a versatile tool, unfortunately a majority of my students don't have access to a computer or internet connection at home.
Some of the ways we will be using them are:
- to access online math and science programs,
- to research and help prepare their STEM fair projects,
- for a small group math center,
- to complete class projects, and
- for fun review games like Kahoot and Quizizz.
