Individual Student Technologies

My students need four Kindle Fires and 10 portable CD players for access to technology. We have materials for their use at our school and at home that require technologies that students can check out.

My Students

We are a Title 1 school, and many of our students have limited technology at home. They enjoy much more access at school, but we have materials and want to extend that access for them at home. We want to put CD players and devices into their hands to use in their learning.

Our school is intact, but our neighborhood was devastated by the tornadoes of May in Oklahoma.

Many families lost everything and this year we want to provide a wide variety of materials from school to the students for check out. Individual CD players will be available to play audio books to help them with their reading and learning. Portable devices will be available for students to access the Internet and many online resources available through our library.

My Project

We have a collection of audio books that have recently been made available to students for check out and use at home. It was a pilot program in April 2013 and students loved it. Many have lost everything in their homes and they need CD players to enjoy audio books. We need ten more individual CD players to check out to students and send home with them. Portable devices like the Kindle Fire can access the Internet and provide greater access to many school resources outside the school library walls. We can provide great access to learning for our students with these technology materials. These materials will expand opportunities for research, language acquisition for ELL students and more support for reading skills as students listen to high quality literature in audio format.

Our students have lost so much and we are striving to bring more library materials to them.

Right now we have opened the library one day each week through the summer to welcome students with activity, books to check out and take home, and a place to feel comfortable during this time of upheaval. Adding more technology in our library expands the options for our students, and provides greater access to things these children just don't have at home anymore.
