GOOGLE is matching donations: Chromebooks for Classrooms

We still need Chromebooks for my classroom. There are so many things that can be done to enhance learning through technology. We use Chromebooks for many different reasons in my class. Research, content review and interactive lessons are just a few of the ways we incorporate Chromebooks. A class set of Chromebooks would enable us to use them on a more regular basis to enhance learning.

With Google matching donations, we can reach our goal if each of my students donates a minimum of $12.00!! Use the link below to make your donation today!!
