Smart Computer for Smart Students

My students need a laptop.

My Students

Technology is the present for most of us. It is the future for my students!

My students do not come from the wealthiest families.

They do not have the best things. They are low income, immigrant families mainly from Spanish speaking countries. They work hard and care about education. We live in NY and go to a NYC public school.

My Project

My classroom has 2 working desktop computers, 1 laptop and a couple of tablets. Adding another laptop to the technology arsenal will allow more students to use technology to enhance their learning. The students will use the additional technology to research their Social Studies projects on New York. They will play math games. My students will use the laptop to aid in research in conjunction with the new reading and writing program.

Technology is a given in today's times.

While many are used to it and have an abundance of it, my students do not all have access to it and I want to give it to them. Please help that come true!
