Mrs. Williams from Kearns UT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Techie Books to Teach Influential Minds

My students need these books in order to learn more about responsible use of technology, online safety, reliable sources, their digital footprint, cyber-bullying, technology addiction/unplugging, coding/programming, and email etiquette.

My Students

As a teacher in a low Socio-Economic Status school, I was lucky to have been accepted into a Technology program that has provided 1:1 Chromebooks. We have a high percentage of English as a Second Language students who don't have many opportunities to use personal computers for educational purposes. We use our 1:1 Chromebooks everyday. Students are working on programs that are tailored to their educational needs. They also receive explicit instruction on how to use the technology and how to be safe on the internet. These books will allow me to have those important conversations on using technology in the classroom and reach readers on all levels.

My Project

Students need to be prepared for the technology in their world. It cannot be assumed that they know how to stay safe and smart online or that it is taught and supported at home. These books will be used in whole group, direct instruction followed by tiered support. They will be shared across a grade to reach more. I am especially excited about the coding/programming books on my list. They mostly involve women/girls, an overlooked population when working with technology.

I have chosen easy readers and picture books to help nurture the love of reading ALL books in the classroom.
