Mr. Linnell from Austin TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

No More Boring Math Workbooks

My students need Amazon Fire Tablets to explore math that is otherwise unavailable to them through pencil and paper work.

My Students

I am fortunate enough to work in a community where my students are extremely hard working. They show me every day that they are responsible, respectful, and ready to learn. Unfortunately, many of them struggle to quench their thirst for knowledge. 92% of our student population are economically disadvantaged which leaves them with the inability to truly unlock their potential outside the school walls. I can, however, say that our school has been supportive of our community. Everyone at our school strives to give them the best opportunity possible.

One of the things that I love about my students is that they are always willing to take risks.

When we are learning new material, they are not shy about asking questions or even thinking outside the box.

My Project

Technology can help students access a world of information in a way that workbooks, worksheets, etc. cannot. I am requesting Amazon Fire tablets for my students so that they can experience math in ways other than putting pencil to paper.

It is my experience that students are more engaged in math and more willing to take risks (gaining more information as a result) through the various math websites offered.

We try and use technology daily, whether it be through Kahoot, IXL, or Quizlet. Unfortunately, we are restricted by the activities we can do with such limited technology. With more tablets, our class will have more access to the interactive math games that drive them and promote growth in class. Using the tablets will also be a great way to prepare this younger generation for the future, as more and more jobs depend upon technology.
