Mr. Hagstrom from Sacramento CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Brilliant Images for Brilliant Scholars

My students need a brilliant classroom projector that shows images when work lights are on and that does not gobble up classroom space with a projector into the room.

My Students

My students come from all around our city because we are a school of choice. We emphasize college readiness and help our students all the way through the application process to college. Our students are mostly from minority culture and 80% are eligible for free or reduced lunches. Their neighborhood schools do not do a good job of supporting them to and through college so they and or their families have chosen to come to my school.

My students are very interested in issues of social justice and want to change their world for the better.

They are painfully aware of the inequalities around them and are convinced they deserve a better chance at a charter school like ours.

My Project

In my Art class, we have images on-screen all the time. We look at art of a diverse body of artists. We watch video interviews with artists, we watch images from the classroom Elmo document camera. We see student work examples blown up to fill the screen for discussion and critique. We need a brilliant projector and preferably one that does not take a huge footprint from the room.

The wall-mount projector is a standard issue in modern classrooms but our school technology is very basic.

They keep us with working laptops and maintain the network, but this is certainly not all the needs of a classroom in the 21st century. Students come from a very visual culture and my class is VISUAL ART! I need to share art up close and personal on the screen so that all students can see what we are talking about so they can engage. A bright projector with a big image is the answer to this.
