Ms. SAWYERS from Greensboro NC is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Better Interactive Learning Experience

My students need a LCD projector to participate in active learning as a whole group.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The students are preschool age ranging between four and five years old. Despite the many challenges they may face before coming to school, they are eager to explore and learn. The students are at-risk young children from various demographic factors, cultures, home environments and low socio-economics statuses. They are limited to educational experiences outside their home. With creative and meaningful activities, the students can show pride in their efforts. Our school promotes school readiness for children in low-income families by offering educational, nutritional, health, social, and other services.

My Project

The new LCD projector will offer ways of reaching students in mutiple approaches. It will allow the teacher to interact with students better, to use a multi modal form of teaching, to provide more entertaining ways to teach the lesson's objectives and facts across with films, slides, and images. The students will participate in active learning without having to crowd around a computer monitor. Students can participate in real-time, interactive activities. Problem-solving activities promote the development of critical thinking skills.

It’s much easier to concentrate on something when you’re playing an active role.

Students enjoy seeing, hearing and interacting with technology rather than simply listening to a story.
