Reaching Online Databases for Research Projects with Chromebooks

My students need 2 Dell Chromebooks to check out from the library when they need to work online and they do not own an electronic device.

My Students

Born from the frightening events of the Cold War in 1957, our school, a charter school in the lower Mississippi Valley, is considered a math and science school.

We serve a population of students with high intellectual potential from diverse socio-economic backgrounds (61% minority)

A vast majority of our students will chose scientific careers. We serve 200 ninth graders and 200 tenth graders as well as 200 eleventh and 12th graders in AP science classes each year: Biology, Environmental Science, Chemistry, and Earth Science.

My Project

Your geography teacher has assigned a research project about a country of your choice and you need to access online sources.

If you do not own an electronic device, doing online research can be quite a challenge!

This is why my school library is trying to develop a bank of chromebooks to check out to low-income students (we have 30% out of 947 who are under free lunch status) who need to borrow an electronic device.

As the librarian of my high school, I purchased 10 chromebooks, but because of high demand, I need more devices. The school cannot afford to purchase more chromebooks at this time, so getting a couple more would make a difference.

These Chromebooks can be used for research (any subject) and also, our school uses the google tools.
