Our school is a beautiful neighborhood school located on the south shore of Staten Island, NY. It services students of various economic backgrounds. Students come from middle class, working families, while others struggle at or below poverty level.
We have a lot of diversity when describing our student home life.
Some students are fortunate enough to live in homes with extended families, others are living in single parent households, or being raised by other family members. Some students are even part of the foster care system. The majority of our students speak English but we do have struggling ESL children and non native parents. Our school has a fair amount of children receiving services through an IEP.
It is imperative that teaching Computer Science and using computers in the classroom is a priority for all students. We must keep students motivated by offering equity for all. We are preparing our students to be leaders of tomorrow, holding jobs in fields in uncharted territory.
If students are to succeed, then technology in the classroom is essential.
The use of computers in the classroom not only levels the playing field among students but also makes them happy which in turn, more productive.
The students at our school work extremely hard in class. They use laptop computers as well as iPads to create assignments and projects in their Google classroom accounts. The Epson 3750 eco-tank printer is just what's needed.
Often times they spend countless amounts of time and energy to make their presentations beautiful and professional looking on the screen, only to have it printed in black and white.
This printer is very cost effective because it doesn't use any cartridges. It would allow me to print everyone's work without limitations and stressing about the cost of replacing the ink when I run out.
