Ms. Crowe from Buffalo NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Training Future Techies!

My students need access to technology to be able to compete in a 21st century job market. One more device in the class will help so much!!!

My Students

In our Special Ed classroom, there are 26 students, 6 students with disabilities and all from very troubling personal situations. With a class motto of "No Excuses", I am teaching the kids that everyone has issues they are dealing with, let the issues motivate, not inhibit greatness!

My class is made up of 26 students including 6 students with disabilities.

This is considered a high needs school as 100% of the kids are on a free and reduced lunch. They are young minds who want to explore and do great things, but are so limited by their home lives and the resources we are limited by at school. They would love the opportunity to try their own tech device like a laptop or tablet. They would flourish at the chance to try and blended learning classroom, but sadly are not afforded those opportunities due to the limited funds available to us. The school does their best with the resources available to them as well, but every little bit helps!!!

My Project

My students get limited to no interaction with technology. This is a major issue when trying to prepare students for a 21st century job market, which computer literacy is a must! With this new Surface, I would be able to work with small groups to create multi-media projects such as movies and websites. I can place students who need accommodations such as text read to them on the device to listen to an audiobook, while other students are reading independently. We will also be able to use the classroom Promethean board more regularly for whole class instruction, as the laptop provided to our class does not work properly. It would increase the ability to create blended learning opportunities with greater access to schoology.

Funding this project would mean providing 26 students with a small glimmer of technology.

This would mean providing a slightly more level playing field and giving these kids a fighting chance at being able to compete with others. This project may ignite future scientists or writers through their research or typing.
