Ms. Miles from Durham NC is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology: A Part of Our Everyday Lives and Curriculum

My students need new computers in order to have unhindered access to the engaging and exciting literacy and mathematics programs that our school uses.

My Students

Our students are an eclectic bunch from all over the world who attend school in a rural community of Durham, North Carolina. We are considered a Title 1 school, which means that most of our students receive free and reduced lunch. As such, we often lack the funds to provide our students with the high quality learning tools that we would like. The literacy and mathematics computer programs are fun and engaging reinforcements for what I teach in a whole group class setting. My students are able to practice the concepts I teach in a new way, and I'm excited for the opportunity for them to do this unhindered by incessant technological problems!

My Project

With the ever growing incorporation of technology into our classrooms, it is imperative that I am able to provide my students with the best learning experience possible in regards to technology. Our school being a very low-income school, we rarely have the money for new computers. As such, our current laptops are old and often malfunctioning.

The use of literacy and mathematics computer programs will be an integral part of my encouraging my students to truly engage with what we are learning in the whole group class setting.

Having new laptops for my students will provide me the opportunity to do this unhindered by the technological malfunctions that seem to plague us most days. My students will be able to apply what they are learning in new and exciting ways using these laptops. Not only will this help them to grow in their literacy and mathematics skills, but it will also begin to prepare them to thrive in our technology rich society.
