Goal

To provide equal opportunity for learning in the classroom for all students, whether they own the best technology or not. 

 

What will be done with my students

During Covid19, Pinellas County Schools has implemented the use of Canvas and other learning platforms, such as AP Classroom; online textbooks such as ¡Qué Chévere through CarnegieLearning; AP Temas through VHL central; and other supplemental resources for Spanish 2 such as Sr. Wooly, Mira Canion, Garbanzo, and Quizlet, all of which are used in my classroom!

Most assignments this year are completed through the use of technology, to avoid shared contact with paper and pencils, and to accommodate Simultaneous Instruction of students both at home and at school.

Some students, especially those who attend class face to face, do not have the technology required to complete their work. Students in the classroom frequently work on their phones these days, but some children do not have a laptop, tablet, or phone (or one that is adequate to handle the required apps).

Having a few extra student computers in the classroom would level the playing field for all students.

The students in my classes who do not have the same access to technology as other students are often English Language Learners and lower income students.
 

 

Benefits to my students

A few available laptops could change a student’s life, by allowing them to be successful, build confidence, and LEARN!

 

 

Describe the Students

My students are 9th-12th graders, in Spanish 2, Spanish 5 Honors, and AP Spanish.

Many of my students are English Language Learners who are struggling just to get by, and many of them don’t have access to technology. They have so much to learn and so much to gain but are handicapped (and embarrassed!) by the fact that the don’t have the tools available to them that most other students have. This is especially true in the classroom, where the school does not supply laptops, but assignments this year are primarily by computer.

 

 

Budget Narrative

2 Dell 3190 Student Laptops @ $440 each – to give students without computers a chance to keep up with the other students in the classroom who bring their own technology to class.
