Preparing Students for Their Future

My students need 2 Chromebooks in the classroom in order to work on various Google Presentations (similar to PowerPoints) throughout the year.

My Students

Have you ever been asked to do something where you did not have the tools or little knowledge of the task at hand? Well, my students encounter this problem in the classroom and at home daily. Teachers assign projects to be completed on a computer, and if they don't have access, it is difficult.

I have a classroom filled with 38 sweet little faces and their ages range from 9-10 years of age.

They have great personalities that puts a smile on my face each day. My class is a diverse group ranging from GATE identified students to the English Language Learner(ELL). Varying levels of learning in the classroom are important. Our class loves to work in cooperative groups and believes each person brings a different level of perspective that is valued. Our school is located in Southern California. We are a Kindergarten through 6th grade school and relatively small with less than 600 in attendance. Our class is an energetic group with a big interest in technology. About a third of my class does not have computers at home, and others share with me that they have to compete for time on the computer with siblings. This makes using technology, and all it has to offer, a difficult and slow learning process for them.

My Project

Chromebooks in the classroom means ALL students don't need to wait for our 60 minute block of time in the computer lab on Tuesdays. Students with Chromebooks in the classroom will have the ability to go on the Internet and access Google Docs from their student portals. Throughout the year students are given several Google Presentations (like PowerPoint), need to be able to research on the Internet, and then present in front of the class. Sometimes this takes several months, but with working computers in the classroom, students will have the opportunity to work in class when they cannot otherwise at home. My students will be able to share documents with me, giving them another avenue of completing work in the classroom. Chromebooks in the classroom means students can learn, practice and become more confident in their abilities on the computer.

Chromebooks in the classroom would provide my students the tools necessary to work on research and presentations on a more consistent schedule.

In addition, it helps level the playing field with regards to certain students not having access to computers at home. Having Chromebooks means students are investing in their own futures by learning and keeping up with technological advances.
