Ms. E. from Durham NC is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Future is in My Hands!

My students need Chromebooks, a charging station, and headsets to be exposed to new technology they cannot get at home. They need to use it to do research, read online, and do some of the programs we have available.

My Students

At our Title I, low income school we have adopted some wonderful programs for reading and math. We try hard to expose as many children as possible each day with the technology we have. Many of my students come from low income families. Our school has a thriving backpack buddy program, holiday assistance program, and clothes closet to help make ends meet. When surveyed, we found few students had technology they could use at home. That meant the only place they were able to access the wonderful online tools was at school.

My students are thirsty for learning new technology that will help them prepare for a bright future.

The internet has opened up huge libraries of leveled books, wonderful resources to enrich vocabulary, and math and science tools in abundance. It is a challenge to get it into so many needed hands so often.

My Project

In our Title I school there is just not enough technology to go around. This project will allow students who do not have technology at home a chance to read books online, learn skills from experts, look at different ways to solve equations, and broaden their world. Students will be able to go online and see a world that can be theirs one day. The headphones will allow them to listen to symphonies, stories, and learn how to use computers for coding.

These are the tools that the future commands.

In order to prepare them for the future students must know how to use computers. In first grade they are learning to log in and navigate menus. They are discovering how to use the hardware and software. All of this will help them with the big career dreams they have.
