My students need a document camera in order to participate in read alouds due to our lack of reading text copies and share work in a cooperative learning environment.
Help prepare our future leaders for the jobs of tomorrow! For the first time ever, teachers are preparing children to be ready for jobs that do not yet exist. It is essential that we move past teaching basic facts and content knowledge to instructing students how to be problem solvers and innovative thinkers. A document camera is necessary make this transition. With a camera, I will be able to provide my students with mathematics and language lessons that allow them to use maximize minimal resources to solve problems in meaningful ways.
My students are extremely hard-working and truly want to learn.
They get excited about their education when they can work on stimulating independent and collaborative projects. Many students come from homes in which parents work multiple jobs that take them away from home all hours of the day. The students must be given as many technology resources and as much support during the school day as possible to help them become independent problem solvers.
The document camera we are requesting is a reasonably priced model that will allow students to share their work with the class and facilitate important discussions for formulating meaning for the standards they are learning. The camera would also allow us to stretch our reading and math resources as the whole class can use one material since it can be projected for the whole class to see. We can also utilize resources we can't purchase but are available for borrowing from our public library. The camera has freeze and zoom features that will allow students to work for constructing their own meanings and internalizing knowledge.
We do not have the resources in our school to obtain the technology needed to use constructivist strategies that will help children learn how to be critical thinkers.
Our classroom needs a document camera in order to complete cooperative lessons and share and discuss the work students complete. This form of teaching allows educators to instruct students on how to utilize different tools and strategies to solve problems and formulate meanings for learning goals on their own. This is your chance to help shape the future!
