My classroom shows the variety of people that live in the area. I have students that live in $500,000+ homes, while others live in extended stay hotels. This wide economical gap is most noticeable when we have the students use their own devices and some have to share. My goal is to be able to provide every student in my class a device they can use while in my classroom. In order to increase the use of technology in my room, I have to have technology for them to use.
My school is what we call a BYOD school, it stands for Bring Your Own Device. Unfortunately, with the economical gap as wide as it is I have some students that don't have access to their own devices. When I have students research a topic they will sometimes share devices in small groups or not use them at all.
If I am able to get these 5 Chromebooks I will be able to have not only smaller groups but they will also have the ability to create more meaningful and exciting final projects.
With your help my classroom can help me reach my students and not only enrich their learning but also their lives!
