I teach in Philadelphia. My 3rd graders have very little access to technology. I only have 2 old Apple computers in my classroom. In my opinion, the children do not have the technology skills and the ability to research what is expected of them due to the fact that they do not have computers that work in the classroom. For the above reasons, I am asking for 10 tablets. My 3rd graders need to be able to access the internet and use the computer to keep up with their suburban counterparts. Many children do not a have computers at home, therefore there only access to the computer in at school. The need for new and operating tablets is essential in this day and age.
Thanks you for viewing my page. I hope you will be able to Adopt our classroom and make the 3rd graders in Room 106 computer friendly.
