TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need access to tablets more consistently to practice grammar, review terms, take quizzes, conduct research assignments, and much much more. Many students can and do use their phones, but many do not have access.
My students belong to a very diverse socioeconomic high school. There are many students who come from very wealthy families, and many who must work after school to help provide for their parents.
However, they are all hard-working and dedicated students who deserve equal opportunities.
Our community is very supportive of education, and the students can see and value that involvement. They are encouraged to do well in school, and most take that directive to heart and try their hardest. They are good students who deserve the best.
Education is so focused on moving forward, but many times students are held back because they do not have the same access to technology as others. A small set of tablets for use by students who do not have smartphones, tablets, or laptops of their own will be very beneficial to helping all students stay on task and stopping any from falling behind.
In my classroom, we use technology for everyday assignments like grammar, bell ringers, definitions, and review.
Our school does not have 1:1 technology--we have a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) set-up where students are welcome to use their own technology when approved by the teacher. Students without a Device are left borrowing a friend's phone or going to ask for extras from other classes.
Just a small amount of technology available for students to borrow on an everyday basis would be helpful. It would keep students from standing out in a negative way to their peers, and help them keep up with classwork.
