One of my first grade inclusion classes needs computers in the classroom. We are a title one elementary school in NYC, with more then 77% of our students qualifying free or reduced fee lunch.
My students need modern computers to build the IT and Math skills they need to help them thrive in the modern world.
This is a wonderful group of students. They are kind, smart, loving, and they all love technology. Now we need your help to bring our class into the 21st century.
This is the fifth computer center project I have started for one of my classes. The first four have been a huge success.
Linux is free, as in freedom.
There are literally thousands of high quality educational games, tools, and resources available for absolutely free. The only catch is you have to have hardware that is powerful enough to run the software.
The Raspberry pi 3 B+ is an affordable computer designed for use in the educational environment. If this project is funded, we will expand the free software that we can use to support learning in the classroom with programs like sonic-pi, Gimp, libre office, Gcompris, TuxMath, and Scratch.
On top of the huge library of Open-Source educational programs, our students will also have access to many high quality online resources. These include prodigy math game, Starfall, ABCya, PBS KIDS, Khon Academy, Brain POP, tumble books, and that’s just to name a few!
Note: There will be 4 student computer work stations. The 5th raspberry pi computer will be hooked up to our smart board for lessons and group games.
