My students are intelligent, wonderful children who come into the classroom each day ready to learn and be challenged. I teach in a rural, agricultural area. Many of my students do not have access to technology or Internet outside of my classroom.
Eighty-eight percent of the students at our school receive free or reduced lunch based on their socioeconomic status.
Fifty percent of our students are ELL students and come from families where Spanish is the primary language spoken in the home.
My students and I are working hard to create a 1:1 technology environment in our classroom. The Chromebooks will be used for center activities, vocabulary practice, writer’s workshop, reader’s workshop, and so much more on a daily basis! My students love having the opportunity to work on computers during class. There are so many resources out there for students to use that will be an asset to my teaching. I know that my students will benefit from using the Chromebooks daily not only short term in my class but also long term by learning technology skills they will need later in life as well.
