Laptop Computer Needed for Classroom!

My students need a MacBook Pro laptop computer.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Currently, my students and I cross our fingers every day and hope our classroom laptop doesn't freeze or go blank in the middle of our lesson. I teach 153 of the best ninth and eleventh graders in New York City. Even though the majority of my students come from high-need communities, we use our time together as inquisitive travelers who visit different time periods and parts of the world (global studies) and country (us history) through interactive "AWESOME POWERPOINTS" (as deemed by my students), field trips, and guest speakers.

Unfortunately, recently we've had to shift from "AWESOME POWERPOINTS" to my printing out and photocopying my powerpoints/ eliminating video clips/ cutting interactive quiz games because our classroom laptop has reached the end of its life. It will all of a sudden freeze or a black screen will pop up on most days. My students are understanding and flexible, with only a few grumpy moans-- but they deserve better! With the majority of my students as extremely visual and auditory learners (and a large number with special needs requiring graphics to aid in processing), the interrupted/ absence of "AWESOME POWERPOINTS" really prevents them from absorbing all the content that they will need in order to graduate from high school and move onto college.

I need a new laptop for my classroom that will allow me to create "AWESOME POWERPOINTS," videos, sound clips, and allow for my students to create their own presentations to share what they've learned--- without the fear of a sudden crash or "screen of death."

By supporting this project, you are ensuring that my students are truly absorbing what they are learning in class, and as a result, helping to bridge the achievement gap.
