Tablets for Low-Income Families to Support Distance Learning

Help me give my students their own device to use at home to support their distance learning.

My Students

My students are from low-income families, many considered homeless. Some are using phones to connect to the Google Classroom while most have been able to obtain a laptop from school. Many of my students have multiple siblings that require them to all share one device throughout the day and as a result unable to submit the minimum assignments. I'm looking for donations of devices for my students that can be used to support their distance learning.

My Project

Almost all of my students share their borrowed school devices with a sibling, a cousin, or another family member for their online learning. To support my students I want to give them the opportunity to have their own device to continue their learning.

One of my second graders shares his school chromebook with his younger cousin.

His teacher meets with her class at the same time as my class does and as a result he cannot always make our meetings. He has expressed that he misses his friends and has a hard time connecting because he knows his cousin needs more instruction than he does. I miss my kids and they should all be given the opportunity to connect with their teachers and classmates.
