Ms. Winsley from Orlando FL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Knowledge Is Power

Help me give my students access to tablets so that they will be able to complete assignments and projects. Also, through use of technology become more knowledgeable and able to compete with students in the 21st century.

My Students

My students are eager, creative, and ready to learn! They arrive to school each day with renewed minds and willingness to learn. I enjoy watching my students collaborate with each other, and complete culminating tasks that require them to use different methods of thinking. They come to school each day with the mindset that every day is a new day. They are willing to take risks and confront challenges. It's amazing watching their growth academically and behaviorally. I know we should uplift the students, but I think their light is shining on me as well. It's amazing!

One of the challenges my students face is completing assignments due to the fact that they lack access to resources and supplies.

My students have fostered a love for learning, although students range in their modalities of learning. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, small group work, preferential seating, and differentiation of content to ensure that all student needs are being met at their functioning level of success. They are truly an amazing bunch, and I am so humble and grateful to have a new group of scholars who are eager and ready to become successful learners.

My Project

The use of technology is a daily occurrence in my classroom. Technology is used to complete classroom assignments, homework, reading centers, IReady, and students take reading assessments using Accelerated Reader. The technology allows me to see exactly what students are doing, it shows me what skills students are proficient in, or where students are still struggling. It helps me to monitor student growth and make adjustments to my instructions to ensure student success. By having these 15 tablets, students will be able to focus more on learning and not have to focus on pencils breaking in the middle of an assessment, if seating is available at the three school computers we have in our classroom, and they won’t have to concern themselves with losing assessments as the tablet allows students to submit assignments/assessments upon completion.

By donating to our project, you will help improve student academic achievement, and students will be afforded the opportunity to focus on what’s truly important: academic success!

The more students immerse themselves in learning through technology, the more adept they will become with the content and learning. In this technological world we live in today, any interaction that students have with technology will increase reading levels and comprehension.
