My students need additional Chromebooks to ensure that every student has access to technology.
Our school serves students with special educational needs. Our student enrollment is primarily comprised of students from single parent lower socio-economic homes. Our students have emotional and behavioral disorders which effect their academic performances. Students arrive at our school with a variety of educational levels. Some students arrive at our doorstep reading on a first or a second grade level while being in the eighth grade.
Our students are in desperate need of numerous resources that will help them overcome the challenges they face in their day to day educational struggles.
Special education students would benefit from the use of technology as it levels the playing field. Students will be able to perform complicated tasks with the swipe of a finger. Today's students must be computer literate as the world is shifting into a more technological direction. Our students are driven to learn but we lack the resources to accommodate their educational needs.
Our students predominately come from lower socio-economic single parent households. Their families struggle with many aspects of life and at times do not prioritize education as their children will probably have to contribute to the household at a young age and forego college. Many of our students struggle with basic skills such as reading and writing. Struggling readers eventually fall behind in all subjects as reading is required for success in Math, ELA, Science and Social Studies. Technology can help students scaffold their deficiencies and focus on the concepts presented during instruction.
“Technology affords our students the ability to learn on par with General Education Students.”
In today’s society writing is one of the essential tools that teachers use to assess students’ knowledge. Our students do not possess this skill which leads to poor performances at times. Many of the students have the background knowledge but have no means to deliver this knowledge. As Harold Garner theorized, all humans possess different forms of intelligence that can be nurtured and cultivated into productivity. At times our student’s performances are in no way indicative of their present levels of intelligence.
Technology gives our students a conduit to communicate in various methods and mediums. Students will spend quality instruction time inferring, processing information and learning rather than getting frustrated due to lack of skills. Technology will tap into their intelligence and cultivate learning that they may not be able to achieve using traditional learning methods. Please help us bring our students into their future endeavors prepared for the challenges they will face in their educational journeys.
