Remember when you didn't have a printer? Remember having to have to tediously write down the information? Now technology has allowed students, especially special education students, to utilize computers and printing tools to help with learning and accessing information.
Technology has allowed my students to more easily learn and show knowledge.
However, the public school system does not have the funds to have printers (sometimes not even paper) for student use. Many of my students do not have access to a computer or a printer. They really should be able to print out homework, research, etc.
My students have many academic and emotional requirements and I intend to foster the confidence they build with learning. Many days, students run into my class needing to print or find information for a report. However, recently my own personal printer has fallen to the grave and the children have nowhere else to turn for support.
These days, you can access textbooks, assignments and research on the computer. Having the availability of a printer will allow my students to print homework and materials to do research for reports at home. They will be able to quickly print work for other classrooms, home, or reference. They will be able to print homework or research papers.
My students who struggle with the basic tasks in the classroom are continually requiring adjustments in the way information is being presented.
A printer will allow for these students to print out notes, homework, assignments, and research for reports. They would also be able to print out graphic organizers and information to fill these in. A printer would improve my students' academic success and I know they would be very appreciative if they would be able to receive one.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
