Ms. Lucas from Kenai AK is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology For All

My students need 2 more Chromebooks to add to the 5 Chromebooks we previously received to help students have more access to technology.

My Students

I am lucky to teach both 6th graders, who are new to middle school, and mostly 8th graders in Algebra, who are nearing high school. While this is my first year at our middle school, I already feel welcomed by the warmth my students have shown me.

My students are eager to learn and come to class ready to do so.

They come from a mix of low-income and high-income and are diverse in ethnicity. While most students are Caucasian, there is a mix of Alaska native, Native American, and Hispanic students as well.

My Project

I have just received funding for 5 Chromebooks! Ideally, I would like a total of 10 for my classroom, as my classes can range from about 20-30 students depending on the year. So by adding these 2 Dell Chromebooks, I would have a total of 7 for my classroom. I will be adding another project later for a few more. KPBSD is pushing for personalized learning, and I believe adding Chromebooks to my classroom will help me achieve a more personalized learning experience for students in my classroom.

My goal is to create a station rotation model and use some flipped instruction to engage students in their learning.

In the station rotation model, I plan to have a computer station where students are engaged in either a game or software that will help demonstrate a concept. This helps free me up to work with students in small groups and give more targeted instruction. With the flipped model I am hoping to create videos that students can watch before class as homework. If they don't have access to technology at home, I would need these 10 computers to allow students access at school, so they aren't missing key concepts.
