My Students

I teach 30 fourth-grade students. I also work with students in other classes that speak another first language (ESL). They benefit from the ESL computer program our school provides, but they need the technology to be able to access the program.

My students are very creative and love to work on the computer for writing stories and other projects.

They love to look up information for science and social studies. My ESL students have access to a computer program called Reading Horizons that helps them with English language development. The program suggests each ESL student be on the program for 20 minutes every day. With only three computers in my room it is hard to get all of them the full 20 minutes needed a day. If I had more technology in my room, more of my students could be on the program at a time, and headphones would keep the noise down.

My Project

Our school is going paperless and taking most of our tests online. Wonderful news for the environment, but tricky to get everyone on the computers at once. With Chromebooks more students will be able to test at once. 4th graders also do a lot of writing, and with today's demand for typed reports having technology is even more important.

My students need to use the computers to be able to do their programs.

Chromebooks are a lot less expensive and easier to use than laptop computers. ESL students would be able to take the Chromebooks back to their seats and work quietly.
