My Students

Help us gain some modern technology in a classroom that still uses a chalkboard and old iMac desktop computers. It is very hard to learn how to use modern technology when we don't have access to it.

My class is located in an urban school in Pennsylvania.

Unfortunately, our school is 80% poverty. We house students from a homeless shelter and a battered woman's shelter. I have many English as a Second Language students and many with other special needs. My students are needy, emotionally and economically but they are wonderful, happy children. What they lack at home we try to offer them at school. Food, shelter, education and love. The students love using technology but unfortunately we have a limited amount that has to be shared among many classrooms.

My Project

When I have the opportunity to borrow the Elmo projector for the day the students light up. They love that it is in color and shows their hands on the screen. They love to come and solve math problems and highlight important information in reading passage. They really love when we do maps in social studies and they can come and find a state or city or continent. The students seem to come alive when this kind of fun, interactive technology is available to them.

Receiving an Elmo document camera would inspire the students to do more presentations.

Being that these students have language issues and special needs they seem to be less inclined to volunteer and perform in front of peers. Because they enjoy coming up and using the Elmo they forget about there language deficiencies or there lack of self esteem. Every child in the room is on task ready to learn and hoping to be the lucky one picked to come up and solve a problem on the Elmo!
