Mrs. Dragone from Raleigh NC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology for All

My students need a set of ThinkPad laptop computers in order to strengthen their individual technology skills.

My Students

On a typical day in our classroom, we use technology to explore the world, establish relationships with students beyond our local area, and to take virtual field trips.

My class is made up of twelve amazing, energetic, and enthusiastic low incidence, special needs students.

Some need to improve their literacy skills while others need support strengthening their understanding of math concepts. They all love being challenged academically and working on their social skills. They REALLY love using technology to explore the world.

My Project

My students will use the set of ThinkPad laptop computers to write reflective journals and create presentations teaching others about their experiences throughout the year. These presentations foster their independence, self-advocacy, and self-determination. They will also use increased access to technology to establish relationships with students across the country.

We are currently already doing some technology projects in cooperative groups, however, the lack of available technology prevents them from completing individual projects.

Therefore, this will strengthen their independent technology skills.
