Mrs. Floyd from Charlotte NC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Getting the Jump on Learning

My students need 24 4GB jump drives to store their work/projects on at school in order to continue to work on them at home.

My Students

My students enjoy using technology to complete assignments. However, they become frustrated because they rarely have a way to take this saved work home to continue working. Having a jump drive to take home will provide a better opportunity for completion of assignments.

I work with students at a Title I school who are mainly from a low socio-economic class.

Fifty percent of these students are English-as-a-Second-Language learners. They are students who are excited about learning. They remind me of sponges soaking up water - they want to learn everything they can because they will take this knowledge back to their homes and teach it to their parents and other family members.

My Project

With the ability to create and save their assignments on a jump drive at school and then to take it home or to the local library, students will be more excited about completing their assignments, which in turn will lead to better grades and higher self-esteem! They will be given an opportunity to be as creative as technology will allow for assigned projects and "show off" their technology skills when presenting their finished product. Students will also design spreadsheets and graphs to keep track of their academic growth (i.e. pre/post test results for various units of study). Using this technology will prepare them to be better 21st century learners.

As my students develop their technology skills by maintaining and saving academic data as well as creating project presentations, their confidence in their abilities was soar!

This will give them a head start for their middle school years, not to mention high school and college.
