Let's Get Digital!
My students need tablets to access our online curriculum, practice reading and research skills on their own, and produce writing pieces digitally.
Not all students have the same resources at home. They come from all ability levels and backgrounds. Some are in advanced courses, and others are in more remedial courses. ALL have a need for technology in the classroom, per our curriculum.
In order to prepare these students for their futures by teaching 21st century skills, they need 21st century technology!
Not every student can afford to buy all of their school supplies, much less a tablet. I want all of my students to have access to this technology to enhance their learning in the classroom every day.
With a set of tablets in my classroom, students can regularly access technology every day. Students who have a tablet in the room can access our textbook online. They can re-read assigned articles at their own speed or reading level. They can do research and write about their findings. They can digitally publish their writing, or even connect with other students in other schools!
We have limited technology in our school.
What IS available must be shared between 40 teachers and 5 administrators. Regardless of what we are required to share, I still have to teach to my required learning standards, which includes things like comparing multimedia versions of texts, using technology to produce and publish writing, and including multimedia components and visual displays in student work.
A classroom set of tablets would make a world of difference in how my students will learn and operate on a daily basis. I could have a 100% digital classroom. Students will be more engaged and likely to participate in class projects and discussions. Increased student engagement means students have a desire to succeed.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
