Enriching Learning with Multimedia

My students need an LCD projector in the classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach US History and AP Comparative Politics in an urban, highly multicultural high school. Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and we offer a challenging upper level curriculum with many supports to channel students into our AP and honors programs. Using previous test scores, classroom performance and guidance assistance, we work hard to create opportunities to move more students into our more challenging classes.

The technology budget for our district is very limited. We do have a few computer labs in the building but high demands make the technology difficult to reach for entire classes. The presence of a multimedia projector in the classroom will allow me to bring internet-based information into the classroom. This includes charts, graphs, video material, interviews and other forms of information that can greatly assist our ability to move forward using the media that our students are most comfortable with.

The multimedia projector will open many new opportunities for my classes. With the projector, internet-based and other visual media-based information can be added to the more conventional paper and pen / blackboard media that we use today. Also, student-produced media materials (powerpoint presentations, short videos, etc.) will be accessible to entire classes.

You can make it possible to improve our AP scores and create greater excitement in our upper level classes. This not only benefits students in class and improves test scores (including AP), but also helps to improve the image of higher academics in our school (which is a problem in our district.) This will encourage more students to reach for the more challenging classes and raise the bar in many ways here at our school. In the long run, this will improve academic performance, raise university acceptance rates and open other valuable doors for our students. Thanks!
