I would like to prevent my students from experiencing any limitations. Providing them with technology to utilize each day will help them become responsible digital citizens. Teaching at a Title One school sometimes means those limitations are in place. This past year, however, I did what I could to provide them with technology. I watched them use this technology to SOAR. My young students became masters at Office 365, Nearpod, and responsible researching. They used curriculum based programs such as ST MATH and Istation as well. They created items digitally to display the content we were learning about. It was, by far, my most rewarding year of teaching yet. I want to give each student that enters my classroom this same opportunity, but unfortunately I do not have the means. Children are our future; technology is the way of the world; when you bring the two together children can be empowered and unstoppable.

Goal

I would like to prevent my students from experiencing any limitations. Providing them with technology to utilize each day will help them become responsible digital citizens. Teaching at a Title One school sometimes means those limitations are in place. This past year, however, I did what I could to provide them with technology. I watched them use this technology to SOAR. My young students became masters at Office 365, Nearpod, and responsible researching. They used curriculum based programs such as ST MATH and Istation as well. They created items digitally to display the content we were learning about. It was, by far, my most rewarding year of teaching yet. I want to give each student that enters my classroom this same opportunity, but unfortunately I do not have the means. Children are our future; technology is the way of the world; when you bring the two together children can be empowered and unstoppable. 

 

What will be done with my students

My students and I will be able to learn together using technology as a tool for enhancement, engagement, and education. I will utilize Nearpod for lesson delivery. This will allow me to engage them in learning while immediately assessing all their tasks in real time so that re-teaching can take place immediately and effectively. They will be able to access books at their finger-tips using MackinVia, Myon, and Destiny. They will learn the Office 365 programs so that they could publish their own writing and create presentations that can teach others what they are learning. They can use safe search engines such as Kidrex.org to research topics and learn about them fully. Together, we will also discover new and upcoming programs that will put them at the very forefront of the way the world is moving. I want to show the world and them that they can do anything. At eight years old, they have the power to start becoming anything they could possibly imagine. Please help me help my students have every possible opportunity to reach their full academic potential.
 

 

Benefits to my students

My students will benefit greatly from the daily use of technology as a catalyst for learning curriculum. Studies are beginning to show, that brains are rewiring to be more open to the visual graphics technology provides. Utilizing digital tools, can enhance engagement in my classroom and help me cater to the learning styles of my students. Using programs like Nearpod has completely transformed my classroom. The level of engagement is incredible. Unfortunately I do not have the means. In previous years, the computers I scrounged up would not keep a charge, they would take upwards of 20-30 minutes to get some kids on and started with their experiences, and they often would shut off without warning. This made it difficult to show them how successful they could be using technology. Even still, the use of it completely transformed my classroom. With your help, I could give my students every opportunity to reach their full academic potential.  

 

Describe the Students

My students are first and foremost AMAZING. They are full of spirit and life. My students have a variety of learning styles. I teach ESE students, ELL students, and many students who are considered low performers. Having access to technology will help bridge the gap and give them a leveled playing field.  

 

Budget Narrative

The total for this project comes to 21,318 dollars. While the overall price is large, what students will be able to do as they become responsible digital citizens will be priceless.
