Capturing Our Learning

Help me give my students the AVerVision document camera and carrying bag! This document camera allows all students to clearly see and share models as we create them on a large screen as they work.

My Students

I am thrilled to be teaching 2nd grade at S.U. in Newark, NJ. This year is extra special because I am starting a new chapter as a first-year teacher in a new school! I am looking to fund a document camera so students can become technologically savvy as they learn to navigate their growing curiosity and independence. As our classroom environment and theme is emojis, I want to help all my students "emojin’ the possibilities," and this document camera is an important part of that goal!

These students each bring their own light to the classroom and deserve the best and most welcoming learning environment I can possibly give them!

Thank you for helping the S.U. Stars!

My Project

The use of the Smartboard is a daily activity in my classroom, especially in math and literacy. Students come to the rug with whiteboards for guided practice and model strategies. This document camera allows all students to see exactly what I am modeling and to share the work of students for peer-to-peer learning. It is hard to hold up individual work for all to see; this camera is a great way to showcase work to facilitate learning. My classroom is inclusion, and my students can get distracted and have focusing issues, missing important instruction if they cannot clearly see models and work. This document camera will change that dynamic and ensure all students have great access to the learning focus!

Donating to this project shows you know how important it is for all students to have equal opportunity and access to materials and models that will improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

Students will be able to focus on our models and learn from and with one another in a truly collaborative learning environment! Today's world increasingly relies on technology so all updated technology will increase my students' digital literacy and help them navigate the digital world better today and in the future!
