Mrs. Holman from Burnsville MN is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the power to learn and work every day in class and use their technologies without the "my Chromebook is dead" excuse, please.
I have a very large multi cultural 6th, 7th and 8th grade group. In FACS we learn about nutrition, how to cook, design interiors and fashion, sew and budget! These skills are critical to being a successful adult! Everyone needs these basic skills. While some classes are made to "get a taste of everything", Teen cuisine and Design are dedicated to students who have found an interest in these fields. Teaching our younger generation ways to be successful in everyday life is so critical in today's world! I want to give them the best opportunity to understand these skills as I can. These kids are the future of our world.
Students use their Chromebooks almost every day in class. They take tests on them, work on projects on them, they research on them, and the submit homework on them. Most of which is done in class. Students forget to charge their Chromebooks pretty regularly. When they come to class without charge, they cannot participate in classwork, which puts them behind. With charging eaisly available at each desk, there is no excuse! On occasion (though only as a last resort) they are allowed to use their phone. So a small charging station for those, seems only fair. I would like ALL students to succeed and never have an excuse to fall behind!
Thank you for any help you can provide.
