Mr. T. from Charlotte NC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

SMART BOARD: Making Science Come Alive

My students need more opportunities to interact with modern technology using interactive CDs to engage reluctant students and keep them motivated to learn.

My Students

How many hours a day does a child spend watching television? Children are stimulated today by technology more than ever and we as teachers must "catch up" and meet our students where they will be most engaged in the classroom.

My students absolutely love technology!

When it is applied in the classroom, they are on the edge of their seats to learn more. They are thrilled by the graphics and they forget that they are learning a new task due to their excitement. I teach in a high poverty elementary school, which has some students who have no access to technology at home.

My Project

My students need more opportunities to interact with modern technology. The interactive cds will engage reluctant students and keep them motivated to learn. The Smart Board (interactive whiteboard) was purchased by the school district. Unfortunately, no resources were provided with this amazing tool for the classroom. I need more resources to teach in science and in math to utilize this wonderful equipment. Science and math are becoming more challenging for students and these Cd's will make the learning easier for them. The children will be excited and they can be in charge of their learning by actually operating the interactive cds.

The donations you give will allow children who typically do not have the opportunities to participate in technology a real learning experience for them.

Please allow them to experience learning with a touch from their fingertips. Please allow them to be the chief of their learning and allows these cds to motivate them to be anything that they choose to be in life.
