Computer Mice for Little Hands
Help me give my students computer mice to make their online learning enjoyable. They will be able to focus on learning and not on navigating the trackpad.
Our school has been closed since early March. We have been distance teaching daily to our students via Google Classroom. My students are second language learners from socio-economic households. The majority of their parents have little to nonexistence tech skills.
Every day my students attend our online meetings excited to see what they will be learning.
Our students love school; they love to learn and are eager to learn.
We rely solely on donations and grants for classroom supplies and materials. Asking our families to help with fundraisers is out of the question. Since COVID-19, I have been purchasing resources for my students to use online or applying for free app donations.
My students struggle using the touch pad on their Chromebooks. They just don't have the coordination or fine motor finger strength it takes to navigate their device. This leaves them feeling frustrated and not wanting to participate during our meetings or complete their daily assignments after our meetings. Having a computer mouse for each student, that is designed specifically for their little hands would help greatly to alleviate so much of that frustration. Students would be able to work quickly and focus on the task at hand, rather than focussing all of their attention on the track pad.
