Our Students are in High Need of These Items.

Help me give my students the items they need so that they don't get behind in technology.

My Students

I teach a bilingual first grade class in a low socioeconomic area where many of our students need extra support to be on grade level. Many come with little exposure to things outside of their home. Books are a privilege and so is technology. Most do not have computers, laptops, or even wifi in their homes.

My students are smart and capable of achieving great things, but the lack of technology at home immediately blocks them from advancing at the same rate as students who come from a stronger socioeconomic background and who have the use of technology at home.

Giving students more access to technology in the classroom can offset the lack of technology at home and expose them to apps and programs that can be individualized to target their own educational needs.

My Project

These items are necessary for the classroom. The headphones ensure that all students can work individually in their own assignment without interrupting other students' learning. The mice will help them use the set of chrome books that we share in class.

Our students get so excited with these basic items because they don't have access to these at home.

Every child deserves the opportunity to have access to technology, especially now when technology gets more and more integrated in our daily lives. No child should lose an opportunity to be great just because they were not lucky enough to have the right resources.
