Camden

MetEast High School

(Ivone Class)

Description.

Mr. Ivone is an 11th-grade teacher at MetEast High School, a Big Picture school that helps children from Camden through its project-based learning, quarterly student exhibitions, and student internships; in order for students to take full advantage of their school model and the learning opportunities presented. A tremendous increase in technology is needed, specifically in the form of student laptops. Currently, the majority of these students lack home technology, meaning that most do not have computers or access to the internet at home. Even the most ambitious students struggle to complete assignments due to this lack of access. Mr. Ivone's classroom currently has zero computers. Any increase in technological access would significantly benefit present and future students, greatly increasing their chances at future success.

Montessori Sprouts

Description.

Technology Equals Opportunity (TEO) has completed a new technology initiative with the donation of one iPad to a newly formed Montessori primary classroom in South Camden, NJ. TEO’s Dean Brophy acted as the primary facilitator of this project, coordinating the donation of the iPad for the newly formed classroom at Sacred Heart Church in Camden, NJ. This new technology will facilitate several essential components of the new classroom such as record keeping and communication with parents, according to Cheryl Heatwole Shenk, the leader of the new Montessori classroom notes. Cheryl Heatwole Shenk has worked with many local businesses to obtain donations of furniture and materials to help with the classroom’s start-up costs. The donation of this iPad represents the completion of the second project of TEO, a non-profit initiative of Miles Technologies. Through the donation of technology, it is TEO’s hope that the access to computers will significantly benefit present and future students and position them for future success. The organization will continue to seek future initiatives where technology can be utilized to make a difference in people’s lives by creating opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable.

One Simple Wish

Description.

Technology Equals Opportunity (TEO) has completed its third technology-based initiative with the donation of five new laptops to One Simple Wish. TEO’s Scott Hoover acted as the primary facilitator of this project, coordinating the donation of the laptops to the non-profit organization focused on providing laptops and tablets to deserving children in foster care. Working with One Simple Wish’s Executive Director, Danielle Gletow, TEO’s Scott Hoover coordinated the donation of five brand new laptops to One Simple Wish. One Simple Wish will in turn coordinate the donation of the computers to impoverished families and foster children in the area. Since 2009, One Simple Wish, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation, has granted over 500 laptops and tablets for children currently in foster care or have aged out of the foster care system. These computers enable these children to stay connected to siblings and other family members they may be apart from while in foster care. With the donation of these laptop computers, TEO, a non-profit initiative of Miles Technologies, has now completed three projects that donate technology to deserving causes. Through the donation of technology, it is TEO’s hope that the access to computers will significantly benefit present and future students and position them for future success. The organization will continue to seek future initiatives where technology can be utilized to make a difference in people’s lives by creating opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable.
