2020 has been a rough year to say the least. Many individuals, families, students, and countless others have been put in a difficult position when it comes to working and education. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many school students in the United States and around the world to embrace remote learning. However, not all have computers at home. The beginning of the 2020-2021 school years spotlights just how wide the technology gap really is. The coronavirus pandemic is overwhelming, and one of the most excruciating parts for many people is the feeling of utter helplessness in the face of widespread suffering and hardship.
Some learning websites and programs have layouts that are not optimal for mobile devices, which in turn, makes it difficult for students to attend lessons, or view slides/videos. Formatting text and visuals for student’s school project on a small smartphone can also be arduous. Not having their own computers hinders a students’ creativity and makes learning from home time consuming.
Computers have become an essential tool for learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. School suspensions lasting for months on end due to the pandemic, online learning activities, webinars, virtual projects, are all necessary. Without the necessary devices, student’s can’t learn efficiently. Not only are they unable to learn efficiently, but the quality behind their work can be seriously affected.
Not every family is in a financial position to provide their child with a computer, much less multiple children with a device. Remote learning makes the situation especially hard. Making a computer donation is a great way to make a positive impact on a student’s day to day life, and also relieve the stress parents are undergoing.
With schools closed, and no foreseeable opening date, technology to learn from home is vital. Children without access to a computer are missing out. The Learn From Home Project has partnered with Computers with Causes to help students of all ages keep up with their studies during these unprecedented times. Even with school districts releasing tablets and computers to families, not everyone has a device that can handle the school load.
Donors can get some extra mileage out of their used computers, monitors, and other electronic equipment– or at least make it possible for someone else to do so. You can donate old office equipment and tech gadgets rather than let them collect dust in the corner or add them to a landfill.
How about instead of letting tech waste away, donate your computer or tablet instead! There is a great need to extend and repurpose our technology. We help students, teachers, returning military members seeking vocational retraining and educating, and other great causes. It’s an unforgettable learning experience that works to enhance and align the spirit of everyone in our communities.
