Ms. Scheiderer from Columbus OH is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Tech Time

Help me give my students tablets to be able to practice technology standards in this technological learning world. They will also be able to have more interactive test prep and individualized instruction.

My Students

My school is a public charter school in Columbus, Ohio. Attendance sits around 350 students. The 3rd grade consists of two classes of around 50 students. These students are mainly Hispanic who receive ESL services, a large African-American population, with a few Somalian, Caucasian, and Asian students as well. 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch and come from low-income households.

These students are ready to learn, but they need additional resources to take their learning to the next level.

The third grade students are dedicated to learning but have very limited supplies. Many of the students do not receive help at home. Some of my students have even told me they don't have any books at home! I want to provide these students with as much as possible while they are at school because of their lack of resources and support at home. These donations for supplies will help me to teach and prepare my students for their future education and lives.

My Project

Technology is very limited at our school. We have dying computers and only 1 laptop cart to be shared among 17 classrooms in grades Kindergarten through sixth. Having a tablet in our classroom would allow my students to work on educational apps and programs that would help them learn on their level.

All students deserve the chance to have experience with and learn with technology, having this tablet would help give them that chance.

Many of jobs today and jobs of the future will require people to use and understand technology. All students should have experience with various types of technology to prepare them for their futures.

Having this tablet in our classroom would greatly benefit my students and enhance our learning. This tablet will help my students practice their math skills but they can also use these tablets to practice our reading skills and use them to assist us in STEM projects. There are also many more apps that we will be able to utilize for history, science, and geography.

Please consider donating to this project and put technology into the hands of my students.
