Ms. Downing’s Golden Bears from San Jose CA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Crazy for Chromebooks

Help me give my students access to a chromebook in order for them to acquire the skills they will need in future work and educational endeavors.

My Students

At this Title I school, most of the students (78%) are second language learners. They are eager to acquire English and become fluent while still trying to maintain their cultural roots. Most of the students are also from families with economic challenges. A large percentage of families (77%) qualify for free or reduced-priced meals due to income levels.

My talented, curious students strive to learn and grow but suffer from great opportunity gaps due to the lack of technology in their homes.

My Project

My students do not have access to technology at home. If there is a computer, they do not receive instruction on how to properly use it as a vital learning tool. Students need instruction on safe internet research, coding, keyboarding, as well as personalized learning opportunities using digital apps. This isn't possible without your help.

My students need updated technology in order to stay in the game and our old equipment will no longer be supported by Google.

I might get access to a chromebook cart once a week if we are lucky. That is not enough to expose students to the digital learning they need to be competitive. I will be using this chromebook to help run a LEGO robotics club, coding, and for keyboarding practice. I will also use the chromebook to personalize learning through the Google classroom app especially for students at risk in literacy.
