My Students

My English Language Learning students are eager to learn English! They are newcomers to the U.S. from countries in Central America and the Caribbean. With such positive attitudes, I know they are able to be successful in spite of the digital divide that leaves them without technology at home.

My English Language Learning students do not have access to technology at home.

They are eager to learn English but the digital divide prevents them from completing online homework assignments. Our school district uses reading and math technology programs to practice skills learned in class. While they are able to complete some tasks at school, teachers assign homework on technology programs that they are not able to take part in. In addition, my students do not have access to technology over weekends and long holiday breaks.

My Project

Six durable Chromebooks would be checked out to students for use at home to complete reading and mathematics home-learning assignments. These district mandated online programs are research based and provide phonics, vocabulary, reading comprehension practice as well as algebraic thinking and geometry work in math.

The digital divide is real in a high poverty school such as ours.

Imagine how successful our students can be with the proper technology tools at home. Our world is rapidly changing and technology learning is key. I am asking for equity in technology learning for six students who do not have the resources at home.
