Mrs. T. from Bronx NY is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need more Chromebooks for class assignments! We are trying so hard to get a class set!
The students from my school live in one of the poorest Congressional Districts in the country. Many of our students are English language learners who live day-to-day and view coming to this public school as a way to escape their home lives. Some don't even have homes to go to! We try our best to provide students with access to after school programs and technology, but with major budget cuts, we can no longer afford to fund student-centered projects. It has become increasingly difficult to offer services to our English Language Learners as well as our large population of students with Special Needs.
You may be asking yourself, "What can she do with three Chromebooks in a classroom of so many?" The answer is astounding. There are countless apps that I can download for free that can be used for small group instruction with students who need that extra "push" to do well. I'll be able to use the camera for all kinds of amazing activities and the apps for reading and writing alone would make this worthwhile. I have one student in a class who is severely visually impaired; what a perfect tool for her! We can use apps like Flash Cards, Prezi Viewer, Mindo, Tiny Vox, Skitch, and Voicethread just to name a few. I'm excited for all of the possibilities just talking about them here!
My students are reminded on a daily basis how little most of the nation cares about them.
Budget cuts, political digs, and a lack of adequate facilities and materials teach them at an early age to toughen up and not care. A donation of something as special as these devices would mean so much to them. Not only would they assist them in classroom activities, they would also help them to realize that people really do care about their education.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
