I teach in a very diverse community. We have been on austerity for a few years. It is very hard to get items that fit in with the natural ability of our students to learn via technology. The money just isn't available.
I teach HS science. I try to make my lessons from the students discovering the world around them. Many times we are in the lab or out in the field. I usually bring my laptop, camera, and camcorder to be able to teach to opportune moments.
Many times I find myself wishing I had a traveling color scanner so that I can bring home some documents I find and build lessons from them. My students would also be able to do this, extending their ability to research. Many of my students are on their way to college. I want them to have as many learning experiences that I can provide for them, using the technology that should be available to teachers and students.
Your help will ensure that my students can extend themselves while researching and discovering the world around them.
