My students need two computer tablets to be able to research data for their science fair projects.
My students are amazing people willing to work hard and are determined to succeed. Many of them don't have the financial resources to buy a computer so they are falling each day to a greater disadvantage in the technological world of today. My class of 28 students gets to use three computers.
I teach an amazing class that consists of 28 eager learners at an inner city school.
My class is composed of a wide range of learners. For many of them Spanish is their primary language. Our school implemented a new reading program that is embedded with technology. Many of my students do not have a computer at home so their only means of exposure to technology is at school and in our classroom. Unfortunately we only have three computers and half of the time only two are functional.
Computer technology is a positive supplement to bridge the gap between education and the technological world in which we live. But how much will a lack of technology in our schools put students at a disadvantage?
Students are naturally drawn to new technology and it is important that teachers find ways to integrate this technology into their classroom. These devices will allow the shy student to explore class content at their own pace, engage the student who was lost during lecture, and countless other possibilities. The tablets will allow my students to do research for their coming science fair. They will have so much fun using this new technology and at the same time they will enhance their own learning.
Education serves as a window through which imagination and curiosity can take flight into the unknown and enhance my students' creativity.
The use of computer technology in education plays an enormous role in helping my students achieve their full potential. This can only happen with your generous donation and your great support. You can make a difference in these kids' future. We can't without your help Thank you.
