My students need Nook simple touches, eBooks and tablets.
We are raising a technological generation. I foresee paper/hardback books as becoming extinct. Having technology available in a classroom will hook students and create an atmosphere of learning that will be engaging and motivating. This expense is something our school district cannot handle alone.
The majority of my students come from single family homes, live in their vehicles, or are homeless.
Needless to say, education is often on the back burner. Their reading levels place them in the lowest quartile within their public high school. Motivating them and engaging them in a subject they are poor at, is often difficult. Having a technological advantage will enhance their ability to stay in school, as well as to improve their reading levels. They would be amazed if nooks were available to them within the classroom. Their self-esteem and confidence levels would increase due to the fact they would be the first in their school to have a classroom set of Nooks. Having this technology in their hands would help them focus and stay on task with the reading material presented.
My students would be amazed if this technology were made available to them. This would give them a reason to come to school. Utilizing this tool on a daily basis would cause them to turn their negative outlook on reading to a positive one. They will learn to stay focused on their reading, thereby improving their comprehension skills. They will stay on task and actually look forward to reading. Ultimately, they will learn to love reading!
By supporting this project, you will be touching teen readers' lives in a profound way.
Reading is essential in life...no matter what line of work or career one chooses to pursue. Technology is everywhere...except in my classroom. To have Nooks made available to them would make them the envy of the school...something they rarely, if ever experience. Help us stay on the cutting edge within the classroom setting. Make school exciting and something a teenager can look forward to on a daily basis.Read More
