My students need a laptop, tablets and presentation clickers for research and projects necessary to complete assignments that prepare them for college.
We are an inner city magnet school to our district with a medical theme. My students come from all over the city, from all different schools, cultures and backgrounds. In spite of the many obstacles, my students achieve higher than all the neighboring high schools and have a 100% graduation rate and college acceptance rate. I need to improve technology access for students to pick up our pace and stay current with today's trends in education. DonorsChoose.org is the best chance for my students.
These added tablets, laptops and clickers will allow students total autonomy so that they will be empowered to take control of research, development and delivery. These are all characteristics/skill sets necessary for college and careers. This added technology brings them into the 21st century and gives them a better opportunity to succeed. Students will have access to these materials 24/7. Students will also be able to move throughout the building and sign out when necessary. Students will be responsible for care and accountability of the devices, which is another lesson in responsibility. Students will also be able to create PSA's for community engagement.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
