My Chemistry students range in grade level from 10-12 grade. While some of them have access to the internet and a home computer, most of them lack these resources to be successful in today's world. Many of my students come from low income households, and it is difficult for them to find the resources needed to complete their classwork, let alone homework or class projects.
Although they lack many resources, my students are still successful in Chemistry.
I would like to help them become more successful by giving them more than they already have, and enabling them to be successful in their education.
I would like these 3 Samsung Chromebooks to offer my students the ability to use the online resources (OneNote, Canvas, Microsoft) and software systems (Vernier, Phet Simulations, Chemistry Matters) our district already provides for us.
These Chromebooks would impact my students immensely by allowing them to do research in class on topics we are covering, write up lab reports and use certain software programs to analyze data, as well as allow them to access online class resources.
Our district gives us access to multiple online resources such as Microsoft Office and Canvas, but my students lack the laptops to access these materials. Chromebooks would be greatly beneficial by allowing them to actually gain more understanding of our chemistry topics. They will allow them to see online simulations and videos, as well as take quizzes on the topics we cover in class.
