Ms. Wilkison from Waco TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creating 21st-Century Learners

Help me give my students 3 Google Chromebooks so that they will continue to develop 21st-century skills. By adding just 3 computers will allow them to have 2:1.

My Students

My students have quite the sense of humor. They enjoy watching youtube, playing board games, and writing fictional stories. They especially love creating scary stories around Halloween. There favorite thing in my classroom is the trampoline. We use it when we participate in discussions. They also love earning "Lunch Bunch" which means they get to have lunch in the classroom and hang out with their groovy teacher.

I currently am trying out the flipped classroom blended learning model.

This means that my students go home to watch the lecture. During the day we apply their knowledge in the classroom by completing interactive activities. The students are completely excelling at this. I've been realizing that the students are already gaining skills that they wouldn't have learned until Jr. High. I love seeing my students turn into 21st-century learners.

My Project

C. Elementary is a title 1 school in which all students are on a free lunch. In years past, we have been an IR (Improvement Required) school labeled by TEA. In 2018, we were finally able to get out of the stages of IR. Our school still has a long way to go to improve. I personally believe that by adding more technology into the mix, that will continue to help our school and community. Adding Chromebooks to my classroom will help students during ELAR stations. We are currently pushing blended learning in our school which will allow students to be working online on particular concepts. By pushing blended learning, it not only allows students to build 21st-century skills, but it also creates engagement in the classroom.

When the students are engaged, knowledge is retained.

In currently have access to 5 desktop computers and 4 workable Ipads. The students can have access to the computer lab if they come in early at 7:30. I want my students to be able to access Google Classroom from anywhere in the building. Because we are going flipped, it is imperative that students are accessing their online work. This will allow them to do that on the go before or after school.
