Students Love Technology!

My students need six computer tablets for use in our classroom.

My Students

I teach a total of 163 sixth grade students. In my classroom, there are one hundred ninety six textbooks and only one computer. I may teach history, but even I know that's bad math! My students love learning with technology and we need more computer tablets in our classroom.

My students attend a multicultural, rural, public, Middle school in south Louisiana.

There are a total of 440 students in our school. Our students enjoy a sweet sense of community and share a lot of small town pride. Still, poverty and isolation are obstacles for many of our students. Fifty-three percent of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch and many of our students have never traveled beyond the deep south. The textbooks in our classroom are not interactive and they cannot update information daily (or even yearly!) Computer tablets in our classroom will empower my students to make real time connections to the world beyond our borders. These real time, real world connections are key to engaging, inspiring, and preparing our students to be 21st century thinkers and workers.

My Project

I have requested six Asus computer tablets with protection plans and covers. I plan to also use our own class funds to purchase two additional Asus computer tablets and protection plans. These supplies will go directly into the students' hands where they will use them in small groups to become more efficient learners. In these small groups my students will digitally travel the world as they take virtual tours of faraway places such as the Lascaux Caves and Great Wall of China. My students will also develop a more expansive world view as they access primary and secondary sources to compare and contrast five major world religions. Students will explore ancient civilizations by making online mummies and digitally fighting to survive a Spartan military camp! Students will gain a sense of security and knowledge as they collect real time data and create hurricane tracking charts. Finally, my students will publish reports of their online adventures using Microsoft Office.

Sixth grade is a very influential year for middle school learners.

Real-world problem-solving, and technology usage are needed to prepare students for success in middle school, high school and eventually, the 21st century workplace. These computer tablets will give my students the resources they need to become successful lifelong learners.
