Ms. Librera from Brooklyn NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Nutty 4 A Netbook

My students need a HP netbook for projects, reports, and class presentations.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am currently a 6th/7th grade middle school science teacher in a high needs area. We are a Title I school and our students strive to be the best but lack resources that they need to succeed. My students are English Language Learners and the classroom would benefit from a basic HP netbook. My students have to overcome many language barriers, learn the English language and required school concepts with little or no help from their parents. Their parents are unable to help them in the educational area due to lack of knowledge and understanding of the English language as well as knowledge of school concepts. My students work hard and often support their mothers and fathers by running household errands and watching younger siblings. Unfortunately, another thing that my students have in common is that their families are struggling financially. Within my school the majority of the students qualify for the state's free or reduced meal program. With that said there is little money for their families to purchase technology and due to the budget cuts schools are facing, teachers in my school are no longer able to personally give each student the resources they need and desire. Supplying my students with this technology would be a small step but it would give my students one less obstacle to overcome on their own. My students enjoy doing experiments and visually learning. As shown over and over students learn better when they take part in the educational process. They can only do that if they are provided with the basics. My students eyes light up when they know that there will be technology use. The addition of a Netbook to the classroom would be a great new resource for my students. It is small and compact and easy to use. Students would be able to "check out" a netbook for projects, presentations, and reports. By providing my students with a netbook, you will be a valuable asset to my students' lifetime of learning. Since the technology is not available in their homes you will be providing a means for them to compete with more fortunate kids. Please support my project and provide my middle school science classes with an HP netbook basic. A technology resources that most students would just take for granted.
