TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students a Surface Pro tablet that will allow them to create, explore, and excel whiling using technology as a mechanism to deal with social emotional issues.
I inspire students at an inner city, public elementary school. We serve approximately 280-300 students in grades k through 5. This small school population allows us to be very creative in our approach when teaching the students. This student-centered approach has created a sense of community where our teachers, students, and parents form bonds that help to create a more nurturing environment. We host several parent and family workshops each year to increase community involvement. Being from a low-income neighborhood, my students often carry social emotional baggage that often hinders their academic performance but they continue to fight on.
My Cougars are MOTIVATED, RESILIENT, AND COURAGEOUS; my students are excited and eager to be the best that they can be.
The creative use of technology is a daily activity at my school. During my individual, group, and classroom lessons, I often use computer-based programs to engage the students while allowing them to discover different ways to express themselves. The issue that my students and I face is accessibility to technology. With a lot of my Social Emotional curriculum being on specific desktop computer, and the unpredictability of our outdated computers, it is sometimes impossible for me to meet with my students in their time of need.
This mobile device will allow us to have sessions anywhere on campus.
We could practice yoga on the lawn, compete in digital contest between classrooms, and/or take pictures while on a nature walk exploring the great outdoors. With a wireless device, students will have endless tools and resources at their fingers tips that can help them develop positive coping skills.
This device will also be used by our Cougar News team to help take our media production and morning announcements to the next level. One of our goals are to be able to live stream our morning announcements to every classroom at our school using the tablet. This will help boost students moral and Cougar Pride on campus.
By donating to our project, you will help increase student engagement, participation, creative thinking, and academic achievement. Students will no longer have to wait for the availability of the computer lab or working devices.
