Mrs. Bankston from Long Beach MS is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creating a Learning Environment for All Students

My students need a projector in the classroom so that items can be projected for all to see. I have one student in particular that is legally blind and cannot see regular text.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is made up predominately of students that have autism. They work hard and are eager to learn. One of the biggest problems we face is lack of technology, which our population seems to thrive on. Our students can succeed, they just need the right tools to do so.

I want my students to have all avenues of success available.

I want my students to succeed and be enthusiastic about their future. I see the determination in their eyes as they are learning something new, but I also see the disappoint in their eyes when they don't have something they need for class.

My Project

My students need extra support and references in order to get the most out of their learning experience. A projector in our classroom will turn on a learning dynamic for all the students to utilize. Technology in the classroom offers different materials as well as different ways to deliver those materials. My students thrive with technology and learn much better with the new advances available than with a book and a piece of paper.

These students face day to day struggles and should not have to face them within their own classroom.

Some of my students have vision problems in addition to their autistic difficulties and struggle to read regular text. With a projector the text can be enlarged so that all can easily participate. This projector will make learning easier.
