Mr. Polk from Lenoir NC is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Digital Resources for a Virtual World

Help me give my students the ability to see quality video and pictures with the webcam and document camera. The presentation remote will allow ease of transition between steaming areas for my virtual learners.

My Students

We are a virtual online learning community using the best practices to make distance learning a success! My students are driven learners who are eager to use their knowledge outside in their local communities. Through project-based learning and effective communication, our students can achieve the same level of proficiency as those who are in the classroom setting.

My Project

My students are remote learners in the 5th Grade. Many of which are using outdated technology and struggling to have access to quality video conferencing and resources they can use at home. These items will be monumental in helping me get quality video that does not have pix-elation, as welll as help create resources for them to use with the document camera at home.

Students at this age need modeling and someone in front of them to learn best.

My goal is to use the document camera to model problems for them during small group instruction, the webcam for face to face conferences and Social-Emotional Health Classes, the presentation remote to be able to move away from my desk and utilize the smart board in my room, and the USB hub to power it all.
