Mrs. Darden from Ooltewah TN is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Rolling Research: Computers To-Go!

My students need 20 laptops to put into a mobile lab to provide entire classes the opportunity to learn together using technology.

My Students

Feed us! Feed us! There is a famine of technology in our school. Please help us quench their thirst for knowledge!

The students at OES are bright, creative, and ambitious individuals.

They are hungry for technology and they have a knack to use it. For some students, school is the only place they are exposed to computers. Unfortunately, within our four walls, we are not able to provide the access for each student to have one on one time with a computer. We feel the more these extraordinary students are exposed to technology, the more they will flourish in their life long pursuit of knowledge.

My Project

A mobile computer lab will provide our students the opportunity to research world-wide resources, create power point presentations to share with their classmates, and communicate with other students their age around the world through email. This would mean no more waiting in line to use the computer, and would provide the opportunity to have whole group instruction from the teacher on various topics. With over 30 teachers brainstorming different ways to incorporate a mobile lab, the possibilities are endless.

With your help our students will be prepared for our technologically advancing future.

For some OES students this could be their only exposure to learning the vital skills they need to impact the world around them.
