Ms. Mead from Bronx NY is requesting technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Increasing Knowledge by Boosting Classroom Technology

My students need 13 individual computers to complete work, look up information for projects and lessons, and work together on group projects while having the ability to contribute on their level with less adult assistance.

Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

“Can I use the computer to look it up?" "I wish we could communicate better on projects and add our own ideas."

A teacher in New York consistently hears students in the school say such phrases.

I am striving to bring technology into my classroom to meet individual needs during independent and group activities this year.

The school I teach at is a high school for Students with Disabilities. Many of our students come from single parent/guardian homes with limited to no access to materials or outside experiences. My particular class is a 12:1:1 population of boys and girls all with various disabilities and academic levels. The students take pride in their work and achievements. By having access to computers, the students will learn skills that will be needed to help them attain jobs and community experiences. If the students can use technology to comfortably communicate and participate with one another, the amount of learning that will come out of every day lessons would surpass what was previously labeled as "limits".

My Project

Having technology that the students can easily access within the classroom on an individual level is crucial to their learning needs. Technology is consistently changing, as is the world around each student on a daily basis. Giving the students a way to connect with each other and the world in their own way is not just one of my responsibilities as a teacher, it is my job to fulfill this need.

Remember when you had to work in a group and you struggled to stay up to speed with the others just understanding what was happening and the work that had to be done?

I did not like group projects for that reason, so I want to make it my mission as a teacher to ensure my students thoroughly enjoy working together and want to work together more than I plan.

In order to have the student engage with this world and understand what is happening, they need constant access on an independent level and have the ability to research further to expand knowledge of topics. I want the students to be able to interact with the lessons on the SmartBoard using their personal Chromebook. This will allow those that are reluctant to answer in a group or those needing assistance of a communication device to participate with ease.

As a teacher, making learning fun and interactive can be challenging. But with the right technology and integration within the classroom, the students can be challenged with new knowledge. With the use of these 13 Chromebooks, the students can work together while giving their individual input on their own independent level. My overall goal is to expose the students to the world that surrounds them with the use of technology on an individual level.
