Ms. Bove from Staten Island NY is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

New Generation = Technologically Driven!

My students need HP Chromebooks in order to have stimulation in the classroom. Being able to use interactive technology with an assortment of activities would give my lessons so much more productivity and excitement!

My Students

I teach ELA to 11-14 year old students in a special education setting in a title one school. Specifically 7th grade self-contained students with a variety of disabilities. My students are low functioning, so their brains have to be stimulated with an accumulation of activities between hands on and visual, etc. Each student learns in their own way, which makes learning and teaching fun!

Learning is hard work, so as a teacher I try to build my students up with the confidence needed in order to achieve success.

They put in such great effort and progress constantly. Each student grows academically or socially and either way, it puts a smile on my face!

My Project

In many of my lessons, I plan to incorporate activities and assignments through Google Suites i.e. classroom website, Google Classroom, Google slides, etc. In ELA, my students are prompted with many thought provoking questions and activities. They are expected to participate but some students unfortunately rarely do. I would love to have the constant availability of technology to implement activities that use various medias. If we had computers, it would make each lesson more interactive and differentiated. The students that rarely participate will have their turn through typing, and it would be okay!

Through change comes growth!

Many of us stick to our routines in the classroom and barely break out of that shell to use technology. Sadly, this generation has an obsession with it. Something new comes into this world everyday, so we may as well use it to our advantage! This resource would guarantee a window of opportunity for each student and I believe, would create such a drive in them.
