Mrs. Hunter from Westfield NC is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Using Tablets to Increase Literacy

My students need Fire HD 8 Tablets to allow them to create and explore the world outside the 4 walls of the library.

  • $576 goal

This project expired on June 21, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our library is the hub of learning in our small Title 1 school. 100% of our students receive free breakfast every morning and 80% receive free or reduced lunch.

Our students are bright and hungry to learn and explore their world.

This can only be done with technology. But the library only has one student computer. This limits students growth and hunger to learn. Once a student has a chance to use the one computer, their interest has passed or it is time to go back to class. Once again an educational moment is lost.

My Project

The library has only 1 student computer to share during class. This limits student's experience with technology in the library. By purchasing tablets, the more students will have technology at their finger tips.

Tablets are more than technology, they are tools students use to increase literacy in our Title 1 school.

Our Title 1 school needs tablets so our students are not left behind in this world of technology.

Our students are hungry to explore using technology and with your help, they can learn new and exciting ways to use the Fire HD 8 Tablets. Please support these bright and exceptional students and their learning journey.
