My Students

I am a special education teacher in a large urban district in Ohio. I teach small group intervention to 5th graders in math, science, reading and social studies. We are struggling to get access to technology to help support my students.

Our entire school of 530+ students has to share two computer carts which hold a total of 48 computers.

They are constantly checked out to take standardized tests, and we can't get any time to practice on them. My entire group of students is permitted to use calculators on their test, but we don't have access to working calculators for them to use. I would like to have a set of computers and calculators for my students to use so that they can have access every day.

My Project

Our students are taking the Ohio State Math Test online for the first time. They need to learn how to use a calculator to best utilize these tools. My special education students get confused when they use different style calculators and they need to have focused practice on the same calculator every day.

Every one of my students can use a calculator on the entire test as long as they are state approved, like the TI-108s I am requesting.

We also need computer access, so that my students can use the test preparation sites available. Having a laptop in the classroom will allow them to take turns to learn the format of the test questions. This is my first project, and I'd like to be able to obtain these much-needed resources for my special education students.
