Power Up Learning

Help me give my students more Chromebooks so that we can increase our technology ratio in the classroom.

My Students

At my school in North Carolina, about half of the students receive free or reduced-price lunches. Our school population is diverse racially, socio-economically, and academically. We focus on educating the whole child: socially, emotionally and academically.

My students are curious, tech-savvy, and problem solvers.

They are inventive and passionate. As a result, they enjoy working on projects where they can explore topics that they care about, collaborate with one another, and show what they know in creative and digital ways.

My Project

My students love working with technology and, as a result, are most engaged when we have access to these tools. They love to work on Google docs, Google Classroom, and Seesaw, a platform that allows them to create a digital portfolio that automatically shares their work with their classmates and parents. Currently, we have only five Chromebooks, making it difficult for students to access these tools regularly.

With more Chromebooks in our classroom, students will be able to access these digital resources to demonstrate their learning.

In addition, students will increase their digital literacy by utilizing the tools through Google Drive to collaborate and share their work and writing pieces. I believe that these Chromebooks will increase student engagement and ultimately student growth in my third grade classroom.
