Do you remember your first assignment in school that required research? Do you also remember how hard it was to get current information for your assignment? This project will help the students in our school gather current and accurate information to use in completing their assignments.
Students at our school will have a Chromebook available at each table in the library/media center to search for books to read for enjoyment and research. They will have the tools needed to collaborate on group projects, locate, retrieve and compile information from a wide variety of web resources. They will not only have the resources available to them in their school library but they will have access to all the libraries in the school system and the public library because we are all connected. They will learn how to access information with confidence and without waiting on a computer to become available. The computers we have are outdated, slow running and being used by ACCESS students which hinders the students conducting research from having ready access to a computer.
The addition of these technology resources will improve our students' ability to find resources for enjoyment and for research. Students operating technology successfully is a key component for success in today's educational system and in the work force. Our students need to be able to leave us with the confidence needed to be successful learners. This addition to our school will directly influence the learning for every student now and for many years to come.
