Desperately Seeking Technology!

Help me give my students a new laptop computer. Our technology is very outdated and not functional in the modern classroom.

My Students

I teach special education at a Title I school in Los Angeles. Over 50% of our students receive reduced-price lunch, and everyone receives free breakfast. My students have many needs, including students with autism and various learning disabilities. Although they struggle with academics, every day my second and third grade students work hard and come to school with a contagious enthusiasm of learning. They engage in all of our classroom activities and are alway ecstatic to learn new concepts. Our school is a wonderful multicultural school that has a strong sense of community.

My Project

We are desperately seeking technology to help bring our classroom into the 21st Century. We need technology for our daily learning and as a part of my daily teaching practice. My students love technology but at the moment we are behind the times. We need a laptop that will give us access to all the programs we wish to use. Reading A-Z, Excel, Word, Google docs, Google classroom and Google drive are just a few examples of programs we would love to have access to. In addition, I would love to bring innovative and interactive lessons by incorporating laptop computer programs into my daily teaching. We would be able to track data using Google drive, Excel or Google sheets. I would be able to present dynamic lessons by connecting to my classroom projector which would increase overall engagement. My students are super excited for the chance to discover new, technology driven ways to learn!
