Providing More Students with Access to Technology

My students need increased access to technology in order to utilize online resources, such as myON, Padlet, and Code.org.

My Students

My school is located in a high poverty/low socio-economic status (SES) neighborhood. One hundred percent of the students are on free/reduced-price lunch. They also have a history of low academic achievement and high behavioral incidents. Four students in my class are English Language Learners, and one-third of my students have special needs related to autism, speech/language, and learning disabilities.

Although most of my students have great academic and behavioral challenges, their potential to achieve is much greater.

One hundred percent of my students have the ability to succeed academically and behaviorally. One goal is to engage them in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activities that will develop their proficiency in the 4Cs – collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and communication.

Another goal is to help my students improve their reading and writing skills. Since reading comprehension is necessary in all subject areas, it is imperative that my students develop a love of reading. They must also learn how to use writing as a communication and collaboration tool, as well as a way to express themselves. Unfortunately, my students and I lack access to the technology and literacy materials needed to accomplish these goals.

My Project

My students need more access to technology. Most of my students do not have access to technology at home, and their access to technology at school is also limited. Thanks to a previous donation of two tablets, I was able to teach students how to turn devices on, log in, and access online learning resources. My students now know how to utilize online resources, such as Code.org, Think Central, and Padlet. However, their experiences are limited, because 20 students share two tablets.

With your generous donation, I can continue the process of creating a technology-rich environment in which students will be able to access online educational resources, develop their STEM skills, and collaborate with other learners in and outside of the classroom.

I will also be able to provide students with increased access to individualized online activities during center time, which is particularly beneficial for my students with disabilities and English Language Learners. When students are engaged in individualized activities, they need headphones, since many computer-based activities have sound and require students to listen to directions.

With two additional tablets, I will also be able to work with small groups of students on their technology skills. Teams of students will also be able to play highly engaging, technology-based learning games, such as Kahoot! and Quizizz.
