I teach at a title 1 school in North Carolina. All of our students receive free school breakfast and lunch. Several of my students benefit from the backpack program offered at our school.
Technology is growing in schools every day.
My students love to use it whenever possible. And are always excited to learn in new and fun ways. More computers in the classroom would help students show more growth in reading and math. Students need 21st century skills now more than ever.
In our classroom we use Chromebooks daily. Students use them to better their math and reading skills. In our classroom we use websites such as Khan Academy, GetEpic, Read Theory and Prodigy to name a few. We also use the computers to complete class projects and research. Students also enjoy reviewing with Kahoot.
More computers in the classroom would allow use to do more.
I would love to set up weekly math problems on a program we use called canvas. This would save paper and make it quicker to assess and help students better. It would also allow me as a teacher to assign more assignments on the computer. With our limited number it is difficult to assign assignments because we run out of time for everyone to complete them.
