Ms. Kraus from Detroit MI is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Making Progress

Help me give my students the headphones needed to do their online learning. The iPad will allow students to work on their online learning programs without the need of a laptop or computer.

My Students

The students that I work with are severely emotionally impaired in grades 2-8th who attend a day treatment program in an urban setting. Some of the diagnoses include mental illness and dual-diagnosis cognitively/emotionally impaired.

Due to the severity of my students' behaviors they often times struggle with their behaviors, and this can lead to them being escorted to our Refocus Room.

Many of our students come from diverse ethnic backgrounds including Native American, African-American, and Caucasian. Furthermore, many of our students come from predominantly low-income single parent families.

My Project

Our day treatment students are 100% involved in online learning. Each student requires a pair of headphones to listen to the online assignments. Due to several students using the headphones they tend to break easily. Without the headphones the other students will not be able to concentrate on their assignments. The iPad will allow the students the opportunity to work independently on their assignments. With the iPad they will be less distracted by the keyboard and mouse and more able to utilize the touchscreen. Individual students will also be able to use their fingers to navigate the online learning programs.
