About My Students

My students are 8th graders in an ICT classroom made up of English Language Learners and Special Education students. They represent seven different countries and most of them speak more than one language. Many of them have learning disabilities and/or language development needs. All of them are at least one grade level below in reading and many lack learning resources at home to help them improve their reading, writing and computer literacy skills. Despite these challenges, they are extremely hard working and dedicated to improving their skills and getting prepared for the demands of high school.

With the help of other donations, we currently have six Chromebooks in our classroom. They are great for small group work and we use them almost daily! When it comes to bigger projects, like individual research, typing up essays or using online reading programs, we all need our own computer! Right now, we have to vie for time in the computer lab with other classes in the school.

In our world today that is increasingly dependent on technology, it is important that all my students are gaining computer literacy skills that they will need in high school, college and in their future jobs. Right now, students struggle with basic research and typing skills. Being able to use these computers will help facilitate the learning of basic computer literacy skills and improve their confidence in reading and writing as they use online programs to read and write their own texts.

In Their Own Words

We are trying to get computers for our ELA class to help us with kinds of ELA assignments like Achieve 3000 reading program, research for projects, and making PowerPoint presentations to show to the class. Also, we type our stories and essays that we write in ELA, which is nice because we can print them out and they look neater than writing them in pen. We can also add pictures and show them to our classmates and families.

We want to help our classmates get a better education, so it is important for us to help make this project happen. We will tell everyone in our school to share this project so that we can get these computers and start using them every day to make our class better and help us learn more.

Using laptops makes learning more fun. You can do all kinds of things on computers that you can't do in the regular classroom. Personally, a lot of us just have cell phones and not laptops or computers at home and the only time we get to use computers is at school for projects and writing things.
