Mrs. Rust from Livingston MT is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Current Skills for Future Leaders

My students need three classroom Chromebooks for research, extra time for project completion, learning presentation skills, listening to reading, and understanding the importance of technology as a tool.

My Students

I teach a wonderful group of 26 fourth graders in a small, Montana town. My students are wonderfully creative and so energetic. Many of my students come from low income homes where it can be a constant struggle to make ends meet. In my class this year, I have three gifted students, five students with IEP's (Individualized Learning Program), and we are a Title I school.

Approximately 20% of our student population has diagnosed special needs; the national average is 13%.

I want to provide the best learning environment possible for all my students. Keeping students current with technology skills beyond gaming will be valuable to their future endeavors in any field of study. Having up-to-date technology in our classroom will provide students with an opportunity that many do not have at home. Our students are the future, and they deserve every opportunity we can provide to be successful, thriving members of our world.

My Project

Three Chromebooks in my classroom will allow students to have classroom access to research topics that come up during classroom discussions, have extended time to work on projects when the school computer labs time is not sufficient, (we share two labs between 14 classrooms) and listen to stories being read to them within their own interests. We will also use the Chromebooks to learn presentation and public speaking skills, for filming and editing videos for science and arts, as well as many other uses we've yet to discover!

In order to prepare students for a successful future, we must keep them current with technological skills, and show them that computers can be used for so much more than games.
