Technology to Enhance Learning!

My students need a tablet/computer along with flash drives to help enhance lessons and their learning in the classroom.

My Students

My students strive to be 21st century learners in a high tech world in a school that offers them very little and basic technology.

I teach in a school where the majority of the students are African American and come from impoverished homes.

Many of these students do not have access to computers or technology at home. Schools should make up for this lag however the technology here is subpar to say the least.

My Project

My students love using technology. It is also an essential part of financial literacy. However, our school does a poor job of providing our students with adequate access to working technology. The computers in our classrooms are purely decorative. Using the computer labs is frustrating because most of the computers don't work. The addition of the Microsoft Surface would prove to be a viable asset that would enhance lessons and student learning. It would allow my students to keep track of the stock market as well as answer any pertinent questions at the swoosh of a finger. Please help us incorporate this very much needed techonology into our classroom.

The donation of this Microsoft Surface and its accessories would really push my lessons to the next level.

Students won't have to wait until the next day to get answers to their questions. They would be able to research them right in the moment. It would help drive them to be critical thinkers and understanding how to navigate the web to get the answers they are looking for.
