Technology!! I Into the Future for Science and Math
My students need a tablet computer in the classroom in order to enhance their science and math skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Due to time and resource limitations my students have very limited access to the computer lab; as such they have not used the computer lab to date. Limited classroom space eliminates the option of having desktop computers to use during free time.
My students are predominately from low-income households.
Computer ownership is a luxury that they cannot afford. The entire school receives free or reduced-price lunch and is located in a high violence area. The school demographic is approximately 50% Hispanic, 40% African American and 10% other.
The future for all students and citizens will undoubtedly involve the use of technology. I believe passionately that my students need to have the same access and understanding of technology as students in more fortunate circumstances. All students deserve the opportunity to learn and have access to the resources that will be such a vital part of their future lives. My students need to be able to access technology and I can incorporate the use of a tablet into my lesson plans. The resources I am requesting will be used during small group instruction. Students will use the tablet for science and math concepts and also to do research on the internet. Over time and with constant use and access to these resources, I expect my students will gain confidence and be knowledgeable about using the newest technology.
Technology is part of the present and the future.
All students deserve the opportunity to be prepared to use a computer and technology. I'm committed to providing my students the opportunity to learn and use technology to prepare them for their future. These resources will have a significant impact on their lives and make a big difference in their learning. They will experience different ways to learn and challenge themselves instead of simply listening to the teacher and using pencil and paper.
