Better Video and Audio Please!

Help me give my students a better online learning experience. Since this is the only way I can communicate with my students, I want to be able to provide them with better quality video and audio.

My Students

The school in which I teach is a unique LAUSD full inclusion gifted program. The AIAT program starts on the beautiful middle school campus for grades 6 through 8. Students then continue the program at our local high school's diverse campus for grades 9 through 12.

As a full inclusion program, the AIAT is home to gifted and twice-exceptional students.

The definition of a Twice Exceptional “2E” Student is a student that is identified Gifted/High achieving and has been identified as having a disability who has an active Individual Education Program.

My Project

Unfortunately, our classrooms have been converted to virtual classrooms. The only way to connect with my students is through the integrated camera and microphone on my laptop. As you know, these have some limitations. I would like to be able to provide my students with a better quality video and audio experience.

I am hoping this project for an external webcam with microphone will get funded.

By providing a higher quality video and audio my students will be able to learn better. If they can see me and hear me better, they will learn more!

The Teachers Pay Teachers gift card will allow me to purchase resources and activities (created by teachers) to supplement my instructional program and support the social-emotional learning that my students need.

Thank you.
