Mrs. Bowen from Pontotoc MS is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Updated Technology for Special Needs Students

Help me give my students computers they can use. Most of my students do not know how to use a mouse. This will help my students tremendously.

My Students

I teach special education. My students are very active and love to move around. They love hands-on activities. Most of my students do not have access to technology and come from low income homes.

All of my children need some kind of special assistance.

These supplies help my students that struggle with fine motor skills. With technology ever changing, it is important that they have up to date technology.

My students all have things that would help them be successful in the general education classroom. That is our goal with all of our students, to be successful.

My Project

Desktop computers are a thing of the past and most children do not know how to use a mouse. If I were to receive touchscreen chromebooks, my students would be able to do their work much easier. All of my students know how to use an iPad. With a touch screen chromebook, I can teach them to type and them still be able to do some things on their own. It will also allow me to free up work space in my classroom, which is rather small.

My students love to work on the computer, however, they struggle to use the desktops that we currently have.
