Mrs. Zamora from Lubbock TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Moving Along with Technology

My students need these wireless mice and mouse pads to help them navigate their Chromebooks more easily and effectively. My students take many online assessments and use many educational resources to help advance their educational learning.

My Students

The students I get to work with on a daily basis are full of life and energy. They are always ready to work and eager to pull out our Chromebooks!

Our favorite part of learning is learning new technology ideas and teaching each other.

Every day we discuss new ways to use our Chromebooks and ideas we may have to incorporate more technology into our everyday lessons.

These students are eager and willing to try just about anything in the name of technology! They are brainstorming ideas they have seen used in other classes or in their previous grade level to bring into our classroom.

My Project

Last year our campus was provided with 1:1 Chromebooks for students 3rd - 5th grade. Students have been using the Chromebooks for testing and increasing their learning in the classrooms.

"Technology is not just a tool; it can give learners a voice that they may not have had before" - George Couros.

After reading this quote I realized that making technology more user-friendly could really benefit my students. After a year of using Chromebooks, my students are still having a hard time using the mouse pad. Due to this, I have seen the struggle when they are taking assessments for classroom instruction or for district purposes. I am requesting wireless mice, mouse pads, and batteries for my students. Being able to use a wireless mouse is going to improve their scores because they can focus on finding the correct answer instead of getting frustrated because they can't maneuver the mouse.
