My students need 2 HP Chromebooks in the classroom!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
5th grade students are curious and eager to learn, especially when technology is involved. However, many students do not have access to computers or technology at home, also being in a school with over 900 students trying to share one computer lab and one roving lab is extremely difficult.
5th grade students are motivated, creative, and enthusiastic.
During lessons, their curiosity and intrigue consistently amazes me. They are full of ideas, thoughts, and questions when they enter the room. Access to technology in the classroom would allow students to push their imagination to new limits.
Students will benefit from having two Chromebooks in the classroom. With the implementation of Common Core Curriculum, Chromebooks in the classroom would allow students to research, write essays, access Google Docs, view educational websites, complete AR test using our Renaissance Place, use a multitude of online sites turn studying into a game, check classroom websites/agendas, and submit projects. The more familiar students are with technology and navigating through tools offered on a Chromebook, the more prepared for the challenges of high school and college.
Access to computers in the classroom will allow all students to be active participants in the world of technology.
Students must be ready for "Âlife in a technological society." (CCCS) To do this, students must treat technology as part of their curriculum, not a separate entity. The ability to have immediate access to a computer will enhance the learning process.
