With these funds I would like to purchase 10 chromebooks (approx. $200 each) to increase the diversity of experiences and rigor within our class. Building student capacity in the area of technology is quickly becoming a critical life skill. Our students are living in a digital world and their familiarity with the technology tools and ability to access and synthesize information is a digital format is becoming essential for life success. Despite, the critical nature of this important skill set, so many of our children live in digital deserts, without the ability to access information that is available to their more affluent peers. More than half of our students do not have access to a computer with high-speed internet access. Frequently, our families need to access the technology tools at the school, because of limited availability to rich technology learning that can occur in the home. We feel like it is essential that we work to provide rich technology-oriented experiences for our students and help to bridge the digital gap that so many of our student encounter.

If we do not meet our goal...

If I do not meet my goal I will hold the money and continue saving/collecting money to purchase chromebooks for my class.

5th grade teacher, Cecil Picard Elementary School

My students are fifth graders who attend a school in a south Louisiana rural area. We have well-behaved students, a very eager staff, and a supportive administration. Our school has a large percentage of students receiving free/reduced lunch.
My dream for them is to be able to envision themselves beyond our small town.
My students are always eager to learn and ready to learn and incorporate new technology.

For the next 3 days something is being done for the first time - Pledge Cents is covering all credit card fees for every investment made to Chrome Learning. This is only for 3 days - starting now until 11:59 pm CST Friday (3/31).
Yep, this means I get to keep more money because they will cover the CC fee because they really live by their motto 'Because Every Cent Counts'. A scenario would like like this:
  • Let's say I raise $1,000 over the next 3 days. Instead of losing $30 to credit card fees, I will be able to keep the $30! Pledge Cents will cover that for me
  • So I'm posting this to inform investors of this opportunity and ask you to share my page so we can benefit from this limited time opportunity.


Thanks and have a great week!
