Mrs. de Mestre from Chapel Hill NC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

21st Century Learning At Its Finest

My students need access to a flip video camcorder for projects and presentations.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Inspire today's children to be technological leaders in the 21st century! I teach 25 fifth graders in all subject areas.

Our school serves a large population of high-need students and our class includes special needs children as well as English Language Learners. Most of the students in our class do not have access to technology at home.

In order for our kids to be competitors in the 21st century, they must gain a sense of confidence by using technology to learn and present information. We will use the Flip Video Camcorder to motivate our kids to collaborate and develop presentation skills.

Your contribution will greatly enhance the educational opportunity for students that are at a disadvantage due to economical circumstances.
