Mr. McDougald from New Britain CT is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Wait! What Do You Mean, The Computers Don't Work?

Help me give my students a Chromebook and a swivel chair for a constant computer station that can be used to help them utilize technology.

My Students

My students are an amazing group that are currently in an under resourced district. All my students are very eager to take advantage of technology which is essential to their future learning. However, due to a limited number of chromebooks, or at many times broken chromebooks they are constantly placed at a disadvantage.

In my opinion it is always hard to compete when you are not even able to get into the race.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

We are requesting a Chromebook and a swivel chair which will help me create a computer station in the classroom that will work. One of the major issues that I have is that not only do I have to share computers, but often when I get them they do not work or are broken.

Students will now have the ability everyday to access and work on online assignments to enhance their learning experience.

With aid of these materials, students will be able to access to a permanent station in the classroom that they can use solely in the classroom. They will be able to use the station to use online resources to explore math concepts and explore science labs.
