My Students

Do you remember being in elementary school and opening a book to do your research for a class activity? Well now students, especially fifth graders, are required to use technology to research their selected topics. Unfortunately this is more so with the new Language Arts program.

My fifth grade students are eager learners who attend school in a low-income community with limited resources.

These students need to be able to access different ways of learning new concepts in a way that will keep them engaged and motivated. This is more so with the new Language Arts program that was adopted within our school district. The majority of my students have no access to any computer at home. The only time they have access to any computer or Internet outside of school is if they visit their local library or visit someone who does.

My Project

The two laptops would greatly benefit my students by allowing them to do the required research technology activities during their language arts group rotations. Not only would the laptops benefit them in language arts, but across their fifth grade curriculum as well like mathematics and science. This would also allow them to have the necessary exposure to technology that will become beneficial to them in middle school and beyond.

By helping our classroom acquire these laptops, not only will they be able to make full use of our school's language arts program, but it will give them an opportunity to acquire skills that will lead them into the future.

A future where computers are becoming part of everyday life, and only those who are technology savvy, will be able to take full advantage of.
