Ms. Beckman from Ogden UT is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

A Window to the World: Technology to Remove Borders

Help me give my students a window to the world through technology. An iPad and TV allow me to present information to my diverse learners and let them experience things they may not otherwise.

My Students

My students are incredible. The majority of them come from low-income households and face multiple challenges before even making it to school. They deserve extraordinary teachers and an extraordinary school experience. I strive to give that to them.

My students inspire me every day with their determination, positivity, and kindness.

It is not uncommon for one of my students to be a main source of income for their family. Often, my students are responsible for getting their siblings ready for the day and to school. They might have an incarcerated parent or live in a divided household. Despite all of their challenges, my students strive to make their dreams come true.

My Project

I am an ELA teacher and I feel strongly that part of my responsibility in that role is to help my students understand the world around them.

With an iPad and TV, my students can be transported through history and skype with a Holocaust survivor after we read Night by Elie Weisel.

They can see that their dreams can become a reality by interviewing successful people in the fields they are interested in. Maybe they will understand what it means to be empathetic.

Technology provides my students with a window to corners of the world that they might not ever see otherwise. As their teacher, I feel it is my duty to help them discover as much as possible.
