Laptops for Learning New AMAZING Things!

My students need laptops to continue with our blended learning model and researching all the new experiences they are being exposed to in the classroom.

My Students

My students are BEYOND amazing!

We are at a Title 1 school in Las Vegas, where many students believe New York or Paris is just a few miles away on the strip.This has to change!

I have adjusted the way I teach from a text, or a set curriculum, to teaching to experiences. My students have never soaked up so much information in all my twelve years of teaching.

We use challenging vocabulary words each week and thrive to find multiple ways to use them, whether it be watching a live feed of a lady "coax" an abandoned puppy from under a house (this went viral), or having a Glow Party to learn about odd and even numbers.

Our favorite was "traveling" to Italy for lunch and having to fix the menu that had no punctuation! I have never been so excited to go to work each day and my students that have attendance problems in the past are actually coming to school!

Please help us out..these kids are "going places!"

My Project

While I make all these new experiences come alive for my students in the classroom, they are instantly eager to learn more!

Having laptops in the classroom allow for my students to safely research their newest learning experience and become teachers of the content they have discovered!

While researching immediately, instead of during our assigned computer lab time not only allows for higher engagement, but they are able to make connections and compare and contrast their experience.

Students in today's world need exposure to technology as it is used daily and with district and state testing. The more technology they can be safely using in the classroom, the more prepared they will be in the future.
