My Students

In order to access the future, our students must have experiences to directly prepare them for that future.

Our students lack access to online resources outside the school setting.

A majority live in public housing or low-cost rental housing. All students receive free school meals and have few resources outside the school, including internet service.

Even at school with 1:1 devices, students are not often successful in properly imputing without external devices, such as mice. With so much impacting their ability to learn, the inability to adequately access provided technology just furthers the "digital divide" that will severely impact their future success.

My Project

By providing a computer mouse to each student, the successful manipulation of elements on devices will be increased. My students have found it very frustrating when attempting to use popular Internet-based learning sites because they cannot successfully complete tasks using the built-in trackpads or touch screens. They know that a mouse is much more easily used, but they do not have them.

Without the ability to fully access input into the devices, my students are not able to learn, create, or grow from the use of beneficial online learning opportunities.

If they cannot fully access devices, my students will never be able to catch up and shrink the "digital gap" that is so necessary to bridge for success in our digital world - both now and in the future.
