Mrs. Davis from Memphis TN is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology To Give Students Better Learning Opportunities

My students need a Chromebook to allow them to participate in fun and engaging learning. They will be able to use technology to make their learning more realistic and relatable to real life.

My Students

My students are the reason I love what I do. It brings me so much joy to come to school each day and see their sweet faces. Every day is different and full of surprises. My students are constantly inspiring me with their ideas and their views of the world. It is so much fun to get to know them. They always teach me more than I teach them.

My students are a diverse, unique, and inspiring group of students.

Although some of them might not have the same opportunities as other students their age, their positive attitudes and bright outlooks on life are a constant inspiration. My goal is to give them many opportunities to learn and grow academically, socially, and personally.

My Project

Many of my students don't have much exposure to technology outside of school. Any time I give them the opportunity to interact with technology, I see their faces light up. They are excited, motivated, and ready to learn with technology.

By giving my students more opportunities to interact with technology, I believe that I can motivate them to improve in all academic areas.

I would like to use the Chromebook as a research tool for my students. I would also like to use it as a way to improve their writing. Some of my students have great ideas, but they get stuck forming the letters to write the words. I think if they were able to type the words, it would take away the stress of writing the words. It would help students to improve their writing skills instead of worrying about handwriting.

I would also like the give my students the opportunities to play educational games. These games will help them to see that learning can be fun.
