Ms. Scott from Charlotte NC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Nook for Knowledge

My students need a Nook, a truss case, and a trip kacket so the Nook will not become damaged.

My Students

Do you remember the first time you experienced a new piece of technology? My students are learning a love of reading and I feel that with a nook reader they will continue to love reading but also have the opportunity to use and love 21st century technology that they will be required to use in life.

My students are from an inner city area of Charlotte, North Carolina.

They have a strong desire to be successful but all of my class is socio economically disadvantaged and some only speak English at school. I have a third grade class of children who don't have access to computers, laptops, Ereaders, and other technology at home (their families struggle to provide food, shelter, and clothing). So, without your generous support my students will probably never see a nook, let alone be permitted to use one and experience how cool modern technology has made books. The nook can download books from all subjects and meet all reading levels in my class. I want my students to be globally competitive and the only way to make them competitive is to teach them how to use technology. So, please support this project and provide my students with a nook so that they will be able to learn about modern technology at an early age and develop confidence in using this type of technology

My Project

The nook holds hundreds of book. My students will learn how to use the "new card catalog" to access the book they want to read. They will experience the thrill of marking virtual pages and highlighting key points in the book without using pencils, pens, or highlighters. Many colleges are now requiring students to have ereaders and I feel that my students need to be introduced to this technology early so that they can learn to use it and feel confident. The books that are downloaded onto the nook are much cheaper than "traditional" paper books and last forever! So, I will be able to afford more books for my class and not have to worry about the books wearing out. The nook also will help my students learn other languages, because books are available in many different languages(this will enrich learning for my ESL students, as well as challenge other students to learn a second language). So, please help me bring my class into the 21st century by supporting this project

My students all have potential to become the leaders of tomorrow; doctors, lawyers, engineers, or anything they desire.

America is falling behind because our children aren't globally competitive. With your support not only will my students continue to read but they will truly understand modern technology, because they will be using it daily. Make my children and future classes globally competitive.Please help us, you are the only opportunity my students have of getting a nook into our classroom!
