Let Our Fingers Do the Learning

My students need 2 HP Chromebooks to learn how to type using real keyboards to access the world and develop life long skills.

My Students

I am a special education teacher working at a low-income school. My students are very energetic and curious. They learn best visually with a hands-on learning approach. At times, we don't have access to the same resources as the general education class due to limited funds.

I work with students with special needs, ranging from learning disabilities to autism; they all have a thirst for learning.

Our school has a diverse population and culture with a wide range of needs. Our student body is a melting pot of local and military families.

My Project

My students need 2 HP Chromebooks to help them learn how to type. They need to feel the keys on the keyboard and know how to manipulate their fingers correctly. This will help with their kinesthetic memory and it prepares them for the 21st Century. By learning how to type, this will help them become more confident in using the computer and accessing information in an efficient way.

We live in a computer-centric world and we need to prepare our students with proper keyboarding skills.

It's one thing touching a screen and using a mouse, but keyboarding, is the KEY!
