Technological Equity

Help me give my students the gift of equity. Technology is the great divide for our students, and the gap between the haves and have-nots continues to grow until we are able to rectify the technology shortage.

My Students

My students are absolutely crazy in the most delightful way. They are full of ideas and passion, but don't often have the technological resources necessary to put their plans into action.

These students come from a variety of backgrounds, but know how to learn together as a team.

They are impressive in their compassion, and inspire confidence in our future. We are looking to obtain enough Chromebooks that all students have the opportunity to use one throughout the school day.

My Project

These Chromebooks will allow all of our students to research a variety of different topics, that they might not otherwise be able to learn about. With the Chromebooks our students will be able to communicate with other students from around the world.

Chromebooks will allow students who may not have access to technology at home to complete the same projects as kids who have the privilege of technological access.

These Chromebooks will allow Highland students to access Study Island, do research projects in multiple classes, practice multiple languages and master core content subjects. Highland has an extremely diverse student body and access to technology varies from household to household.
