Ms. Ray from Murray KY is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Removing Barriers: Equal Access to Technology

Help me give my students the equal access to technology they all deserve. These Dell Chromebooks will not only allow my struggling readers to access grade level materials, but will help them to grow in all areas.

My Students

I teach 1st and 3rd grades students with special needs in a rural, low income school. My students are eager to learn and achieve. They are hard working and far exceed their abilities in most situations. These students are motivated and want to grow and learn new things.

My students are inquisitive and very creative; however, they do have limitations and disabilities, therefore they are all working on individual levels and it is often difficult to help everyone at the same time.

It is very difficult for them to complete independent work tasks. I want to keep them motivated, learning, and challenged even when I am working with other students. We need extra experiences for them in the classroom so they can continue to learn, grow, and gain independence.

My Project

My special education classroom is full of students of varying ability levels who are dependent upon the support of others. Our Title I school has a high percentage of students who qualify for free and reduced-price lunches and whose parents are not able to donate to classroom projects. With these Chromebooks, my students would be able to work independently on materials and tasks that are specially designed for their unique strengths and weaknesses. Chromebooks would allow for my students to practice and engage in grade level materials and assignments, while I work in small group sessions with students of varying ability levels.
