The Technology World
My students need a laptop computer to do interactive activities and learn how to do homework on-line.
"Students that come from single parent home are less likely to be successful", is a statement in USA today. My students do not have laptops at home to do work and learn how to use technology and the only time they will be exposed is in my classroom. Many high school and college classes are taken on-line.
The students in my class are very grateful for any opportunity they are given to learn through technology.
Their parents are not able to do much other than provide shelter and food, which is sometimes challenging. Most families depend on the government for food and clothes, otherwise they would have not have any. The kids love to read and explore the World Wide Web. The Internet provides them with experiences and gives them opportunities to see things that would not be possible given their families' economic status.
My students do not have laptops or even desktop computers at home and we only have one old computer in the classroom. I would like to have another laptop so that my students can learn to do homework and other assignments on-line. Many high school and college courses are offered on-line and I want my students to understand how to navigate using a computer and not be lost because of their economic status. With this new laptop, the students will learn interactive ways to complete Mathematics problems and get a better understanding of the concepts which are sometimes hard for them.
This project is very important because the students did not have a choice of which family they were born to and the financial status of that family.
I would like for my students to be able to be competitive with other students who come from wealthier districts. Like an author says, "you never know where your influences and donations will stop', they could very well change society and our students' lives.
