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

Laptops for Learning!

My students need laptops to enrich and bring their learning into the 21st century. I am trying to create a technology rich classroom that matches our technology rich world.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are great critical thinkers and they are so eager to take their learning to the next level. They have such a love for learning and we really spend a lot of time going deep into math and science content. They love to "ask Google" about their science wonderings and tell us about what they have learned. This really is a special group of kids and I am so honored to lead them in learning about the world around us!

My Project

My students love to learn about the world around them. It is so easy to take their learning to the next level because they really want to learn! Having some laptops in the classroom would really help offer more resources to enrich my students' learning and differentiate instruction.

The world is so technology rich but my classroom is so not!

I firmly believe that the classroom should match what students see out in the world. Everything is run using computers, but my students don't really know how to use computers.

What do you do when you have a question? You pull your phone out and google it! Well our kids need to learn how to do that. I want to teach them how to find credible resources that answer their questions, and I want to show them how to use Microsoft Office products to share what they have learned with the world!
