My school is not what you would call technology rich. I have always scrounged for computers for my classroom. I’ve brought in outdated laptops from home as well as some outdated desktops. A couple of years ago, I got a chrome book for my classroom, and it was good. I still used one of my own laptops for my “teacher” computer, and I let the kids use the chrome book. Last year, I did a donors choose, and got funded for another chrome book, and life was better. I also scrounged a newer desktop for the kids to use. This year, I “found” another chrome book, so now we’re up to 3 chrome books and a desktop. My assistant principal told me about an organization that funds a lot of grants, so I applied for one and got funding for 3 more chrome books – they’re not here yet, but they’re coming. I also did another donor’s choose and got funding for 3 more chrome books. I’m also supposed to be getting another newer desktop. So if and when everything arrives, I will have 9 chrome books and 2 desktops for my students. I am beyond excited. I know there are teachers who work at schools where they have 1 to 1 technology who are probably appalled by my celebrating 9 chrome books. But I also know there are teachers who would do anything to get even one chrome book for their classroom, so color me super excited for what we are getting!
