My Students

My students do not have access to technology in the classroom. They need and deserve tools that will assist them in today's world.

The students I work with in California are eager to contribute to their community and find their place in the world.

They are freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and senior students of varying backgrounds, who face multiple challenges in life. They are socioeconomically disadvantaged and have physical and learning disabilities. The disabilities include intellectual disabilities, speech or language impairment, emotional disturbance, and specific learning disability. With the proper scaffolds and interventions these students can perform at grade level. Their performance is enhanced by technology. Technology not only boosts their achievement and it motivates their performance. Unfortunately technology is scarce in our classrooms. I am seeking two laptops to aid my students in their life learning. I cannot control my students' environment outside of school, but I can affect my students' classroom environment.

My Project

The vision is to be able to have discussions in class while students use laptops to actively seek information to support their arguments and learn new information. Using technology in the classroom will increase my students' engagement and background knowledge.

The use of computers has changed how the world functions.

Technology has changed the way we work, play and think. Technology, intertwined with curriculum, revolutionizes the learning process. Studies show that computer access in the classroom improves students learning processes/outcomes. Technology is more conducive to project-based learning. Students engaged in their learning can become active participants in shaping their communities. We need our students to tackle problems of tomorrow.
