Mrs. Morgan from Mabank TX is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Engage Kids and Enhance Learning With Technology

My students need Kindle Fires and Chromebooks in order to benefit from online learning programs.

My Students

In my classroom, we understand that students learn best when they are activity engaged and interested. I am constantly looking for ways to engage my students by bringing their interests into the classroom. My students are very interested in learning with technology as well as by playing games.

My students are great kids who are excited about learning.

Many of my students are living at or below poverty level. Because of this, most do not have access to technology or Internet in their homes.

My Project

Let's face it, times are changing fast! Nowadays, students are not interested in pencil/paper activities. Kids spend their days on technology; phones, tablets, game consoles and computers.

Kids are more engaged when they are able to learn in a game-like setting.

There are many engaging educational programs available for learning. The problem is the lack of Internet supporting devices. Without the devices, the students cannot benefit from the programs.

Kids learn best through play. What better way to enhance learning than through two of their favorite things, play and technology. Help make our dream for a more technology driven classroom a reality! We need Kindles to run several educational apps and we need Chromebooks for those times that students need a keyboard to complete a project.
