Ms. Reis from New Bedford MA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Can You See It?

My students need notebooks and a document camera to help them learn! The document camera will help students better see what we are learning and make it more accessible.

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Our school is in New Bedford, in an area which has high poverty levels.

All of my students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

When modeling information for students, it can be difficult to ensure that all of the students are able to see and can participate. The requested document camera will allow me to project a piece of work so that students can watch, follow along, and participate in the modeling. The document camera will allow me to see exactly what students are doing while we are practicing, and it will also provide an easy place for students to show and share their work. With the use of a document camera, my students will be able to see a larger picture and will have a better opportunity to learn and practice. With a document camera, students will be able to avoid all of these problems and focus on increasing their learning!

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, but you will also ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand and not on whether or not they can see what I am doing if they are in a different area of the room. In this technology literate world, any interaction with updated technology will increase their literacy as well as their desire to learn and use the new technology!
