Ms. Dickie from New Orleans LA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Computers for Personalized Learning

My students need computers! With computers I can meet my students' diverse needs. Some students need their texts read aloud to them. Other students need to be challenged to complete independent research projects.

My Students

My 9th grade social studies classroom is a place for students to read, write, think, and discuss history and current events. We learn about social constructs such as race, Social Darwinism, and artificial borders; injustices such as imperialism, genocide, and famine; solutions such as human rights campaigns and social movements.

We are working to learn why the world is the way it is and what we can do to help make it a better place.

We look at primary sources, complete research, write essays, and have class discussions about questions essential to society.

In our school, 99% of our students receive free or reduced lunch, 80% of my students are African-American, 20% of my students are immigrants from Central America, and 30% of our population receive special education services. Our school is an open enrollment school in New Orleans.

My Project

With a computer cart I would be able to meet every 9th grader's needs. There are a number of free programs that I would love to consistently utilize to push literacy levels beyond what I am currently able to do without technology in my room.

Some of my students read at an elementary school level, others at a 12th grade level, and some don't speak any English.

Computers allow for every student's needs to be met. Computers would allow some students to have their texts read aloud to them and others to complete independent research projects. They would allow supported independence for my 150 students.

I have attended over 30 hours of technology in education trainings without the ability to act upon this knowledge. With computers I would use all of the information and programs I have learned about every single day.
