My Students

My students’ lives have been turned upside down by this corona virus pandemic! We are all trying to navigate this new and different way of learning. I need the proper tools and resources to be able to help them to learn effectively.

My Project

I need to be able to connect with my students over google meets. I need an up to date laptop that will allow me to share the screen and still see my students’ faces. One that will be compatible with the newest online textbooks and resources. I chose the 13” MacBook Air to accomplish this task. I need the three year service protection to keep the equipment in top condition and a surge protector to insure it is safe during our spring storms. Staying connected with my students is so important at these unprecedented times.
