Engineering Education

My students need tablets for access to technology to better their 21st century education.

My Students

Nineteen versus one. That's the ratio of students to computers in my class. Nineteen children meant to take AR quizzes, complete study island, and take virtual tours on a computer that's so old it struggles to load Google.

I have 19 first grade African-American students, whom attend a public school, in an urban school district.

Despite their life struggles and hardships they are vivacious and eager learners. They come to school everyday, ready to attack the day's lessons (especially the ones centered around technology) with a ferocity that inspires me to want to do more for them. For my homeless children, school is a safe haven and their only access to the American Dream and that global domination, to which kids aspire.

My Project

Everyday we tell our students that the world is bigger than them and their neighborhood. For many of the students who attend my school, that lesson is a struggle because they never leave the street, on which they live, and many never will. We also try and inspire them to not only go out and experience the world, but to want to make a difference in it. I have requested two Asus Tablets, and with the added technology in my room, I can do more projects that allow the students access to the world beyond their block, through such activities as Skype meetings, e-pen pals, and virtual field trips.

We are to be teaching our youth to be 21st century global learners, but without quality access to the world and its information, my students cannot hope to obtain the rich hands-on education they truly deserve.
