Ms. Hansen from New York NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Key to the future? Technology (Part 2)

My students need 3 computers! We are working towards a class set of 11 Acer Chromebooks. Help us reach our half way point with this project!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

If your teacher gave you a choice to type or hand-write an essay, what would you choose? TYPE IT! Not my students, they all chose to hand-write! Why? Because computers are foreign to them. They don't have them at home and access at school is limited. Help me turn my students on to technology!

My students are from the inner city of New York; the majority living in government housing or living with government assistance of some type.

They have duties and expectations apart from school such as watching younger siblings, cooking for the family, or cleaning. Their lives allow them little time to grow up and little time for themselves. School is their chance to better their lives, but they need your help!

My Project

Education is the key to the future and the future is technology. A student cannot hope to succeed without a knowledge of technology. For most of my students, technology is not an everyday part of their lives. Even those with access to computers at home do not have programs such as word, PowerPoint, and excel. That's why, in my class, I introduce them to GoogleDocs. GoogleDocs and Drive might seem like 'common sense', but to many of my students it's new technology, and it's accessible. Help me, help them, bridge the technology gap so they find success today and in the future.

Donations to this project will improve my classroom, because it will make it a 'modern' technology-rich environment.

It will allow students to access computers and familiarize themselves with technology. However, the donations to this project will go beyond that; the true reach of this project is gifting underprivileged students with technology to help them compete in the competitive world they live in, the same world that has stacked the odds against them for socio-economic reasons.
