My Students

"Technology can become the 'wings' that will allow the educational world to fly farther and faster than ever before-if we allow it." (Jenny Arledge) Access to technology will further student learning exponentially and facilitate differentiated instruction to meet the diverse needs in our classroom. Learning has to travel beyond textbooks and the library.

My fifth-grade classroom resides in a Title I school in Gilbert, Arizona.

The students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. My students thrive on computer technology and they are motivated to learn with the use of online educational resources. They enjoy collaborating with their peers on research projects, exploring computer programming with the Hour of Code and Scratch, and engaging in individualized instruction in subject areas across the curriculum using programs such as Zearn, Read Theory, and Prodigy.

Access to technology allows my students to satisfy their insatiable curiosity and take control of their own learning paths. With the use of technology, my students will be able to expand their expertise in all content areas.

My Project

My students need a Chromebook to gain access to the limitless educational resources available online, which would benefit their learning exponentially. The students will be able to have daily access to educational applications on the Internet to diversify their instruction and meet their various learning needs. This will allow them the chance to research a variety of topics and watch relevant videos to clarify new concepts. They will also be able to work with their peers through collaboration on project-based learning activities to solve real-world problems.

By donating to this project, you are helping make sure that every child has the opportunity to use technology to further their learning, work collaboratively with their peers, and meet their individual learning needs every day.

The students will be able to further their learning more effectively and gain the computer skills necessary for future successes. Computer literacy is a necessity for furthering their education.
