Mrs. Williams from Ravenna OH is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Students that Touch their Chromebook Screens will Create More!

My students need a touch-screen Chromebook to draw their interpretations of science concepts with technology like they would on a piece of paper. . . to create art animations, comics, and presentations.

My Students

Einstein said "Imagination is more important than knowledge." By stimulating my students' imagination I strive to build a love of learning that will help my science students gain the knowledge they need both now and in their future.

Although our district is not rich, the hands-on learning experiences that I engage my students in strive to be as rich as possible.

Our school receives 100% funding for free breakfast and lunch for all students. My 6th grade science students and science club work best when they interact with what they're learning. Many of my students have not been outside their own community, making it hard to visualize science concepts or understand vocabulary that they have never seen or heard. The only way to support students with limited life experiences is to provide opportunities for them to see, touch, interact with, and talk about the concepts they are expected to learn. Through my science classes and science club students are given opportunities to feel like everyday is a field trip where they are transported to new interactions within the science world and most importantly where they are the center of this learning.

My Project

Adding a touch-screen Chromebook to our science classroom will give students the opportunity to use technology like they would a piece of paper. To use a finger to draw like they would a pen will allow students the ability to create pictures, diagrams, and even animated art and comics without trying to work within the restraints of a mouse-pad or keyboard. Such work can be screen shared to the Smart Board for class interaction and the touch-screen Chromebook can be passed around like a tablet while also utilizing the students' and teachers' Google Drive features. My students love to create animations through abcya Animate or add drawings to comics in or to class or group presentations on Smart Amp, but drawing with a mouse is slow and difficult. Some students with special needs or poor hand-eye coordination are not able to draw with our current technology, but a touch-screen Chromebook will give everyone that uses it the opportunity to draw the way drawing is intended- with the artist in control of the canvas (in this case, the screen).
