My Students

I teach in the 5th Grade Reading classroom. I currently teach seventy-two, nine and ten years old. The majority of my students come from low income families and having technology in the home is not a priority. I want to give my students the same educational advantages as their peers. Many of them have never traveled outside of neighborhoods or community but they are eager and wanting to use technology daily in the classroom.

My students are are curious about the world around them and through the use of technology they can learn more about it.

My students love learning through first hand experiences and project based learning. With the use of these tablets, I can open the world to them. I feel that as children of the 21st century, they need to be prepared to use a variety of technological tools to engage their world. Teaching in the 21st century can be a challenge due to the lack of technology in the classroom. I feel that is it my duty help them be on the forefront of current technology.

My Project

This desktop will help my students to learn, read, and use digital resources increase to knowledge. Having this desktop will be a great resource fro my students because it would not be taken from the classroom during district testing. The majority of my students do not have technology at home because of the financial cost to purchase and maintain the services. My students will be able to strengthen their technology skills as well be better prepared for the future. It will help those students who struggle with traditional learning methods used in the classroom to be more engaged and develop a sense of achievement. It will help students to become responsible digital citizens. It will also help my student to keep learning even though they are playing.
