My students need a set of Chromebooks so that we can use our sphero edu SPRK+ balls throughout the school day. Current access to necessary tools is limited as we must check out shared devices.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our students come from a variety of backgrounds. Most of our population is one of poverty. All of our students receive free lunches. The students try their best every day but have a lot of obstacles facing them, and for some just getting to school is a huge problem.
Our students live on the Flathead Indian Reservation, and with that comes a diverse group with unique challenges all their own.
I have never seen a group of students who try so hard and face the world and it's challenges head-on the way that my students do.
These iPads and Chromebooks will make a difference by letting the students program the sphero balls anytime we need to in class, without having to make a reservation for the devices that we all share with the entire school. There are many ways to integrate this project across the curriculum and we would love the flexibility provided by having tools located in our classroom space.
Having these devices specifically for my students will give us an opportunity to do more with technology in the classroom.
We will be able to use the mobile lab in all our areas of study and through multi-age class projects. We can use them for Language Arts, Arts and project-based learning. The students want to get into using technology more in the classroom as they make powerpoints, presentations and photo art to creatively demonstrate their learning.
