My students need 2 more laptops to have a 1:1 device classroom.
My students bounce in the door each morning eager to fill their minds with knowledge. Students can't wait to find out not only what they will learn, but how they will learn it.
Our class represents 6 countries and range from on-level readers to readers 4 grades above level.
This leads to the need for differentiation and the need for enrichment so every child finds success. The best part is that within our classroom, we are a school family who have one, very important thing in common, a love for learning!
I can see it now- the look of excitement and empowerment when student every student has access to a computer for learning. In this 21st century world, students need computer skills as much as they need any other basic skills. With 18 students in our classroom, students have to wait a while for a turn on the computer. We are in need of 2 additional laptops in order to achieve our goal of every student having a turn on the computer every day.
Computers empower students to do their own research and figure things out on their own.
Students light up when they are able to get online to discover their own answer to a question. Additionally, the use of computers will allow us to better differentiate instruction. During small group time, students can learn on leveled reading and math programs, getting content designed specifically for their needs. Early finishers would also be able to access computer programs more frequently, so every student is always engaged in a meaningful task.
I have noticed an extreme need for keyboarding skills. Our county purchased a typing program that kids rarely get a chance to use. These laptops will give our students the opportunity to use Typing Club and to learn the keyboard in a way that will help every step of their way in the future.
I work so hard everyday to teach my students as much as I possibly can. In an ever changing technological world, a blended learning classroom where teacher-led lessons are combined with computer learning seems to be the best way to lead our students to ultimate success. Thank you for supporting our classroom and contributing to our love for learning!
