Mr. Wong from Los Angeles CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology for a Modern Classroom

My students need the use of an up-to-date desktop computer to be able to access the internet in the classroom; to do research as well as word processing to write reports.

My Students

Our children/students need to be able to have access to current technology in a modern world to have the skills to compete globally in the future. A desk top computer is one such tool that will facilitate this goal.

My students are ten and eleven years of age who attend fifth grade at a public school in California.

They are from diverse ethnic groups; as is our school. Most are comfortable and familiar with current technology such as cell phones, iPads, and laptops.

My Project

Our classroom has four very outdated desktop computers (more than 10 years old); of which only two are functional. We could greatly use a new up-to-date desktop computer for our classroom. The desktop could then be used for a wide variety of educational purposes.

Your donations for a new desktop computer would made a tremendous difference in improving student access to information and technology in our classroom.

One functionally operating desktop would be a big improvement to our students; not only this year, but for years to come.
