Mrs. Atkinson from Indianapolis IN is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Improving Our Technology With Chromebooks

My Students

My students are dreamers and strive for change in the world. They love to read, draw, explore, and grow. They are curious about how the world works and why events happened. Each child is creative and they enjoy engaging in work that requires building or creating.

Each student has a voice, a story and they all deserve to be heard.

They come from a variety of backgrounds. Some have computer and internet access at home, while others do not. The gap between those that have access and those that do not is widening, meanwhile there are limited technology resources in our classroom. I want to provide all students with equal access to computers and internet at school.

Our school is Reggio-Emilia inspired and students experience project-based learning. The curriculum allows them opportunities to explore the natural world, ask questions, and collaborate.

My Project

These Chromebooks will be useful for students in a variety of ways. Students have tablets but need these Chromebooks to practice typing skills as well as apply their typing to their writing pieces. Students currently cannot type unless in the school's only computer lab. These Chromebooks would give them daily access to typing their writing pieces or blogging weekly. They would be more excited for writing if they could type it.

Students will be able to access more information with the Chromebooks.

Our school is Reggio-Emilia inspired and nontraditional so teachers create the curriculum and find resources from different places. The Chromebooks would give me more resources to share with students.

With these pieces of technology, student engagement in the curriculum can improve in another way. This technology will give more students a chance to research information that they may not have access to at home. With these tools, students will be able to research, draft, revise, and publish their writing!
