Mrs. Day-Alston from Orlando FL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need two Chromebooks with a mouse set to enrich their learning experiences by giving them access to leveled computer programs and opportunities to find the answers to their continual stump the teacher questions.
Every year, I am blessed to have another group of enthusiastic learners! They come in ready to learn and ready to ask questions about their learning! Students can't wait to find out not only what they will learn, but how they will learn it.
As with most classroom settings we are shifting to the use of technology in the classroom.
This provides a great experience for the students and gives me a chance to enrich their learning experiences. With such a diverse home experiences with technology it is vital to ensure that in the classroom I am able to teach the basic functions of computers. This helps ensure their success in upper grades!
Can you picture it? The look of excitement and empowerment when students have access to a computer for learning. In this 21st century world, students need computer skills as much as they need any other basic skills. We are in need of two Chromebooks in order to achieve our goal of every student having a turn on the computer every day.
Computers empower students to do their own research on topics.
Students light up when they are able to get online to discover their own answer to a question. Additionally, the use of computers will allow us to better differentiate instruction. During small group time, students can learn on leveled reading and math programs, getting content designed specifically for their needs. Early finishers would also be able to access computer programs more frequently, so every student is always engaged in a meaningful task.
We have noticed the need for keyboarding skills. Our county purchased a typing program that kids rarely get a chance to use. These Chromebooks will give our students the opportunity to use Typing Club and to learn the keyboard in a way that will help every step of their way in the future.
We work so hard everyday to teach our students as much as we possibly can. In an ever changing technological world, a blended learning classroom where teacher-led lessons are combined with computer learning seems to be the best way to lead our students to ultimate success. Thank you for supporting our classroom and contributing to our love for learning!
