We are a Title One school in which families are from a low social economic status. My gifted students are always eager to learn and be challenged. They are always curious about things around them and enjoy learning and researching a variety of things despite the lack of resources.
My students are always challenged to "Think Outside the Box" and to put their thinking caps on as our brains are fed with a growth mindset.
Each of my students are unique and special in their own special way and I always instill that no matter what's around us, they can always make a difference!
The Surface tablet will enhance my students' research skills and therefore, improve their school lives by having the technology at hand to provide them with up to date information that can be utilized to acquire new knowledge.
My students will get an opportunity to research, explore and inquire different, engaging topics that will enrich their lives and inquisitive minds with knowledge forever.
They will then transfer this new learned knowledge and improve their writing skills, as well as their ability to produce PowerPoint presentations in which they get to orally present and pass on to their friends and families.
Our classrooms are not yet at the level technologically to meet their needs as learners. This grant will help to close that gap just a little bit more. My students will use this tablet to do research and be able to learn how to work with programs such as Microsoft Word and Microsoft Power Point.
