Mrs. Carlin from Fosston MN is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Explore! A Great Way to Learn

My students need the Expeditions kit so they can have the opportunity to see and explore places that they would normally not be able to see.

My Students

My kindergarten class is an amazing group of children that are eager to learn, share and explore. They come into the classroom full of energy and questions. I would love to take them to places they have never been and possibly never be able to go. I love the seeing the excitement in their eyes with every new (and old) lesson that is taught.

The school I teach at is a small rural elementary school, Prek-

sixth grade, with just under 400 students. Over half of the population receives free or reduced lunch and we are a title one school.

My students enter the classroom at many different academic levels. Some are reading, some are ready to read and others are working on understanding that letters are a form of print. Giving them the opportunity to explore places through virtual reality allows everyone to learn at the same time without limiting individuals based on their academic status. I enjoy seeing the growth in each individual throughout the school year.

My Project

Having virtual reality devices like Google Expedition Kits available in the classroom would provide the perfect opportunity for my students to have a real life experience to learn about places that are not within our field trip budget or within our community. Students will be able to explore places beyond our classroom walls and ask questions as they are fully engaged in the power of a virtual reality field trip.

Giving students the opportunity to see and experience places through the use of technology is an investment in their education.

This will provide my students an experience that would not be easily forgotten and therefor be a great learning experience for all.
