Mrs. Mc Keon from Paterson NJ is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Microsoft RT Tablet

My students need a tablet in order to keep up with current technology as my room does not have access to any technology.

My Students

Help my resource room students achieve a higher proficiency with today's ever evolving technology.

My students are all classified and live in high poverty area in a New Jersey city.

Their parents have high hopes for them to succeed in school. They come to school willing and eager to learn, and using a tablet would give them self-confidence and a feeling they can compete with children who have more advantages.

My Project

With a tablet my students will be able to access information from the web and increase their learning status. It will self-motivate them to try harder and improve their reading and language skills. The games that are available on tablets would increase their expertise not only in language but also in the area of mathematics.

Since my room lacks any technology this tablet would be a great start!

These students want to learn and their parents are very supportive and anxious to have their children acquire 21st century technology skills.
