We are a very low poverty level school with an extremely high percentage of students which live in poverty. I am absolutely amazed at what my kiddos go through each day. Their home life is not even close to the best. I am talking about 70% of the students live in one parent homes because of divorced parents or parents which have passed away.
My students are very respectful.
School is their safe place and they are eager and wanting to learn and feel loved. They try so very hard each and every day. They do not get the support they need at home and this school is trying to provide that support.
Technology is the way of the future and if we cannot provide technology to these students at school, they will not be prepared when they get into the real world. We need to supply these students with every benefit to help them achieve if possible.
With these five Dell Chromebooks, my students will be able to use math applications including MobyMax, Edulastic, and Prodigy, along with Read-Works and other educational apps to help them become acclimated with technology. This will also help them with scientific investigations and real world applications such as budgeting a check book and asking for loans. My students will benefit from the one to one technology availability in my room. This technology will help me differentiate my instruction by pushing students higher and to achieve more. We will be able to interact with each other as well as some of the stakeholders with in our school district and building.
