My students need Chromebooks in the classroom so that they can learn to become technologically savvy global citizens.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher's hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world.
Hello and welcome to our school.
It is located in the East Rogers Park area of the City of Chicago. 95% of the students population receives free or reduced lunch. Because of this, money is spent on the necessities and not on technology. This means my students do not have the same access to technology in the classroom as other schools and other students.
My middle school students are eager to learn and excited to share what they have already learned. Technology in the classroom provides us with endless opportunities to both share what we have learned and to continue to learn. My goal is to prepare my middle school students for what comes after they leave my classroom and this school. In order to do that I must provide them with the tools and the opportunities to use technology on a regular basis.
My Middle School students will use these Chromebooks in varying ways throughout the school year. For example, they will be able to use publication programs and software to create and publish their written work. They will be able to access the Internet, where they can conduct research, practice skills, review concepts, and learn new material. With this type of technology available at all times, my students will have access to a wide range of resources that will enhance learning and further understanding in all content areas. Students will also have an opportunity to learn how to properly use the internet to gain a perspective of the global community in which they live.
By donating to this project not only will you be helping my students gain access to academic content you will also be helping these students to grow into responsible and productive global citizens.
