Ms. Ochoa from Los Angeles CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning Thru Technology

My students need 2 new computers in order to complete their curriculum.

  • $1,114 goal

This project expired on December 21, 2013.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students have autism and don't understand that old computers are slow and take awhile to start. Their frustration levels would be diminished tremendously if we had quicker processors such as in a newer computer with Windows 8.

My students range from the ages of 4 years old to 8 year olds.

They attend a public school in the greater Los Angeles area. The majority of students are low income. They all have autism and limited communication skills. They work great on computers. Sometimes I bring in my personal laptop and they learn so much. They are able to navigate better through Windows 8 processor than I can.

My Project

Please help my students with autism learn how to communicate through the use of technology. Having new quicker computers my students will have more time learning and less time getting frustrated. Help my students learn how to communicate and be independent in our society.

Thank you for making a huge difference to a child with autism.

Learning with technology is great way to get my students with autism and limited communication ready for the 21st century.
