My students need the opportunity to utilize the educational programs supplied by our district that connect to digital learning. Laptops are an exciting way for students to engage in interactive learning.
I am a teacher in Durham, North Carolina. We are a Title 1 school providing a strong foundational education for a very diverse student base. Currently, my classroom consists of one Asian student, six African American students, three mixed-race students, and eight Hispanic students coming from a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds.
Based on current data, my students present a wide range of reading abilities.
My students are in second grade with a range of reading levels from an emergent reader on an end of kindergarten level to one student who is reading at a 4th grade level. We work together tirelessly to instill a love of reading.
I am a first year second grade teacher with a limited state budget to support a wide range of books in our classroom library.
Currently, I have 3 desktop/laptop computers in my classroom. The goal for our school has been 5 in every room. Our district has been generous in its purchasing of digital learning licenses, however without adequate technology in the classroom these tools benefit fewer students.
Children from challenging socioeconomic backgrounds deserve the opportunity to engage and learn how to use technology.
This HP Stream Laptop can make a difference by allowing these students access to a world of knowledge through websites such as Reading A-Z, DiscoverEd, and more. Using technology to support research projects align with our curriculum and help develop skills needed by lifelong learners.
