Ms. Davis-Morgan from Jackson MS is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need laptops as well as Chromebooks in my Science/STEM class because using technology in the classroom will help prepare them for the digital future.
As a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. My students are energetic students who are economically deprived. All students receive free lunch. Most of my students must work in order to help their families pay the bills. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.
Most of their parents do not have a high school education.
Students are not able to get supplies and oftentimes are not exposed to many educational advantages. As an educator, I try to bring those educational extensions to the classroom. It is imperative that these students be afforded the opportunity to succeed.
My classroom and students need laptops as well as Chromebooks in my Science/STEM class because using technology in the classroom will help prepare them for the digital future. Technology changes by the minute, and as educators we need to keep up with the times in order to best prepare our students for this ever-changing world that we live in. To thrive in the 21st century workplace, students need to have more than a working knowledge of certain technological tools (electronic calendars, web pages, teleconferencing, electronic whiteboards, etc.). No two students learn the same way, but with technology educators can address diversity in learning styles. A social feedback tool helps instructors discover which teaching styles work best by identifying student needs based on real-time feedback. Also important is the fact that budget cuts often prevent students from taking fieldtrips. Technology allows educators to remove the physical barriers of the classroom, offering students a way to connect curriculum with the real world. With social media sites galore, most students are already digital citizens. However, by incorporating technology into the classroom students can begin to learn how to be responsible in the digital world. The classroom becomes a microcosm of the larger digital landscape where students can practice how to communicate, search, and engage with other digital citizens. Within the classroom, technology will make learning more fun and interesting. Teaching methods such as game-based learning (GBL) allows instructors to deliver lesson via interactive games.
