Big Time Learning on the Big Screen

My Students

Have you ever struggled to understand a difficult concept like fractions or Newton's First Law of Motion? Did you ever wish you could see these concepts come to life so you could better understand? These are the very problems that a new projector would solve.

My students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds.

Our school is located in a rural area in eastern North Carolina. Several of my students have parents who are active duty in the military. We have all felt the economic strain. We have not only had budget cuts, but students are able to help out even less than before. I am in constant search for creative ways to teach with less resources than before. My students also have a variety of learning needs. Some are academically gifted and are in search of ways to be challenged. I also have students who are learning English as a second language. Some are struggling to overcome learning disabilities. All of my students are in search of ways to better understand the material we cover.

My Project

This projector will make learning better for all of my students. It will equip those looking to be challenged with new technology that can be utilized for projects. Most of all, it will empower my struggling students. Many interactive websites are available. I can model difficult math concepts by using virtual manipulatives. I can also show science demonstrations that cannot be modeled in the classroom. I would also like to use the projector along with a document camera. This will enable us to view illustrations from books, show off student work samples, and no more time is lost copying work/information on the board.

My students deserve more than I could ever give them alone.

It is my hope that you will help us make learning fun and interactive. Please help learning come to life on the big screen.
