Mrs. Garcia from Bronx NY is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a Chromebook to complement a Math and Movement Program that incorporates STEAM activities and technology.
My students come from various cultural backgrounds: Africa, Iran, Afghanistan, India, China... and these are just a few. We are in a community school and funding right now is very tight. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful.
Our goal this year is to advance our learning using technology so that students can be creative within their teams and explore exciting and innovative ways to further their learning.
Children are our future. Why not give them an awesome start this year with technology!
This year we are incorporating math mats using movement and technology as part of the curriculum. The Math and Movement program integrates kinesthetic learning along with STEAM which will allow all students to grow academically. It is imperative for all students to have strong math skills as the global market for jobs in math, science, and computers are on the rise. Jobs in STEAM are growing more than twice as much as other jobs. The Math and Movement program enhances students' creativity and innovation. These mats allow students to build the confidence that they need to build all mathematical skills in a fun and engaging manner.
As part of this program, students need to use technology to go into the website and engage in math exercises to help them build math skills.
It is not your traditional paper and pencil program that requires students to learn math in a sedentary manner. Technology is not just a tool , it is the future. Like David Warlick said," We need technology in every classroom and in our student and teachers' hands, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world." This is why I am asking for a Chromebook for my students because education is evolving due to the impact of the technological world. This will definitely gear my students’ vibrant energy to embrace technology to make learning fun and interactive!
