Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach first grade at an inner-city school where most of the students are English-learners. Very few of my kids have access to computers at home.
We have only one computer in our classroom, which is old and very limited in its capabilities. Our study units would be more creative and inspiring for the students if we had the resources we need to do genuine research and compile and share our discoveries in exciting and creative ways. I want my students to see that there is so much more to learning than simply "pencil-to-paper".
In order to expose my students to different technologies and to deepen their understanding of the research cycle, we need a laptop computer that will allow us to connect to the Internet, use a multimedia projector, upload photos and video to create simple films, and create PowerPoint slides.
Your donation will enable me to expose my students to learning that they simply don't have access to anywhere else. Thank you for considering us.
