Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a 5th grade teacher in Compton, CA. Many of my students read at a 3rd grade level. Many of them complain that school is boring and consequently they are losing hope for the future. One way to make learning more interesting to my students is to incorporate the use of technology in the classroom. With the popularity of video games and Ipods, many of my students already have the knowledge about technology. The only problem is that I do not have access to the needed technology to make learning more meaningful to my students. I am requesting a LCD projector that can be hooked up to my laptop, and a television. The reason why I want these items is because I want to be able to incorporate videos into my lessons to help supplement what I am teaching. Also, if my students are able to watch a tape on the Solar System after we have covered it in science, what they have learned will be more meaningful.
