My students need a laptop to become more technologically literate.
We all know that teaching and learning has changed in the past few years and decades. One major way is in the use of technology. But, how can students keep up with technology if they don't have any?
Our school is a kindergarten to sixth grade charter school servicing low-income families within an urban community in NJ.
We are a fairly new charter school and growing each year. My classroom follows the co-teaching model and is the inclusion classroom containing both special education and general education students. We have wonderful students who want to learn and an energetic staff that celebrates each child's success.
My students will be able to use this Acer Chromebook to pick up general computer knowledge, such as mouse and keyboard use. They can also use it to practice literacy and math skills on approved websites to reinforce the lessons that are taught in class.
It is so important to make sure that our students are on grade level academically and up-to-date technologically.
This not only prepares them for the real world in the long-term, but also prepares them for standardized tests that will have to be completed electronically beginning next year!
