My students need four laptops in order for basic computer use in a high poverty, academically challenging education environment.
Technology is not only coming, but it's here all around us. While technology is the driving force of our communities, businesses, and society, students in this inner-city school lack the resources to be competent in basic technological needs.
My high school is a free and public charter school for not only Oklahoma City Public School patrons, but also for those students who live in other school districts who may transfer to our school for its program.
This school’s mission statement reads: Every student shall graduate with the qualifications to attend any Four-year public institution. Regardless of the academic focus, HCP serves 53% of free/reduced students as a minority majority school. These students are first generation students that need extra support and guidance in order to attend and succeed at a four-year university.
With these new computers, students will be able to complete research assignments as well as other assignments in a timely manner. Every subject has projects that need to be completed on computers. They will be used for every class that comes into the Media Center instead of alternating classes as the ones we have now take a class period to recharge. They will also be used during the End of Instruction testing that takes place in April.
The students are frustrated already with the rigorous classes required at this school.
These new computers will alleviate any frustration when they go to the Media Center to do research. It is very heartbreaking to see students want to accomplish an assignment, and not being able to because of the old computers.
