Mrs. Marshall from Detroit MI is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Tablets are Fabulous!

My students need more tablets to explore learning apps to assist them with fundamental literacy skills. They love the learning apps and interacting with the technology, but resources are limited.

My Students

I teach PreK in the city of Detroit. All of my students live below the line of poverty and are considered at risk which qualifies them to be in the program I teach in. Due to their economic and academic disadvantages, I try to afford them experiences they may not otherwise have access to.

I try to expose my students to various experiences that will help them develop a love of learning through curiosity and exploration.

I teach at a STEM school and I want my students to have learning experiences that promote experiences in science, technology, engineering and math.

My Project

The students that I service come to school at an educational deficit. Most have no academic experiences until they enter my classroom. They love exploring learning apps on the few tablets we have available to us. They are good with sharing and partnering up with a classmate, but being 4 years old they often grow impatient waiting for their turn independently. If we were to have eight more tablets with cases, each student will be able to independently work on skills that are unique to them at their own pace and developmental level. Tablets are portable and much more accessible than a desktop, plus the touch screen makes them more interactive and able to download learning apps to help them gain the necessary academic exposure needed for kindergarten and beyond.
