Mrs. Hinson from Camden NJ is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need computers to access the internet to help them complete research projects and access district mandated instructional websites.
For the past 15+ years I have been teaching students who live in an urban school district. Despite the fact that my students live in a city with an extremely high crime rate, they come to school every day ready to learn.
Technology is essential if students are to be competitive in the 21st Century.
New laptops will enable them to develop the academic and technology skills necessary to function in this 21st century.
My students have little experience with technology due to the lack technology in the classroom. Once a week in the computer lab isn't enough.
Children who are not technologically aware will have a very difficult time assimilating into our society. Cellphones are the primary means our children use to communicate with one another. They have yet to understand that technology can be used for more than posting information and pictures on Facebook and Instagram.
My goal is to expose them to the host of other things technology can do!
With 2 new Chromebooks, my students can visit countries and experience cultures they may never have the opportunity to visit in real life. In addition, they will able to access district mandated websites to enrich their learning, type research papers, and create presentations for projects. I'm reminded of what Benjamin Franklin once said, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I may remember. Involve me and I learn."
