We Need Individual Learning Tools

Help me give my students a scientific calculator for each student in class and a set of headphones to complete customized digital learning lessons.

My Students

My students are amazing. They come from a mix of low to middle-income homes where both parents need to work. Over half come from Hispanic families and over half speak another language. They work hard, they earn their own money, they take care of their younger siblings when school is out. They know what it means to work for what you want.

Above all, they look out for each other.

No one is going to hand them an easy life, so they turn to each other for support. Help these driven students succeed.

My Project

My students love working together as a class. Class discussion and group-work are core elements to our learning. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened our learning disparity. Students have been stuck learning at home, and they all have different levels of success. My lowest performing students are falling further behind while my accelerated students are eager to proceed. We'll continue learning as a class, but I'm adding individual learning time where students can learn at their own pace. Each student will get a lesson chosen directly for them at their level. That means in a class of 32 students, we could need 32 lessons. This is why we need headphones and calculators.

I can only teach one lesson at a time.

But if I employ individual, digital lessons I can cater to each student's needs. Most of them will need headphones. All of them need calculators.
