Ms. Loia from San Francisco CA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology Tools to Help Us Learn to Read

My students need 5 Kindle tablets (with covers and headphones) to be able to develop their reading skills through the help of technology tools.

My Students

My students, in a public K-5 urban California school, comprise an ethnically, racially and economically diverse group. Kids arrive into their first year of school with mixed levels of preparedness. For some, this is their first exposure to English. For some the material is familiar from their pre-school days. They are all excited to be at school and to learn. My goal for the year is to make sure that each child improves his or her reading and literacy skills at a pace that is appropriate to his or her starting level, and such that I set up each and every student for success in elementary school and beyond.

My Project

I would like to expand my classroom’s technology corner with Kindle tablets to provide my students with access to tablet-based learning tools. Tablets are wonderful in that the learning can be individualized and can be very rewarding, in real time, to the student.

Right now my classroom of 22 students use only 1 tablet – woefully insufficient to make an impact on many students and creating too much competition for access.

Five additional tablets, such that a third of my class at a time can participate in tablet-based learning, would be a huge improvement. Help us reach our goal, so that each one of my students has the opportunity to become a confident and fluent reader, at a pace that is individualized and tailored to the preparedness level of each child. Each child will make progress!
