Ms. Guggenheimer from Dorchester MA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

It's the Case: Protecting Our New Tablets

My students need cases, screen protectors, and styli for the 6 new tablets we're getting for the new school year!

My Students

Math class is about learning how to think creatively and solve important problems. My students engage in meaningful projects and build their capacity to direct their own learning. We use a variety of approaches to math, and we learn computer programming skills to understand math more deeply. Regardless of whether they struggled in math class before, students are able to rise to challenges, have fun, and learn deeply.

My students are resilient, insightful people who face many challenges in their lives.

Our school serves Boston's Dorchester neighborhood, and almost all of my students are of African-American or Latino/a descent. Many of my students face difficult family situations, live well below the poverty line, and struggle with a myriad of learning and/or emotional disabilities. It is constantly amazing to see how my students persevere and excel through all of these perceived societal obstacles. TBA students are an inspiration to us all.

My Project

We are thrilled to get six tablets this year, so that each table group will leverage technology to engage in creative problem solving. Students will be able to collaborate on STEM projects and stream their results to the class projector. The tablets will also support students with special needs in accessing math content.

In a classroom of students, our tablets will clearly need basic protective gear!

Students will use these tablets regularly, so cases and screen protectors are an absolute requirement. We want to make these tablets last, even with constant use. Plus, we'll need styli to write out our math work on the tablets.
