Ms. Hough from Dorchester MA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Interactive Learning in the Modern Math Classroom

My students need an interactive projector that will allow them to demonstrate their understanding in a multitude of ways and be able to engage and challenge students of all levels.

My Students

Our students come from neighborhoods all over Boston and they bring dozens of different languages, cultures, and customs into our classrooms. We come together, connecting through shared experiences both in and out of the classroom, to create a more equitable, thoughtful, and supportive community for each child.

We have little funding for new technology and the technology we do have is more conducive to traditional pedagogy and not modern, interactive and explorative learning that the students deserve.

Our bright, lively and hard working students come to our school as an escape from the struggles of their daily lives. The majority of our students come from low-income households, qualify for free and reduced lunches, and are unable to buy every-day school supplies to help them succeed. Our students, while aware of the financial disadvantages, still strive to succeed, persevere, jump at all opportunities, all in an attempt to get the education and skills they need to succeed in life.

My Project

This innovative technology will provide many new opportunities for our students in the math classroom. An interactive projector will provide accommodations for students with visual impairments, address presentation skills for students of all confidence levels, and create assignments that are more challenging and engaging for all. Students will be able to demonstrate their understanding in many different ways, but will also be able to practice their presentation skills that they will need in the competitive post-high school job market.

A responsive digital display will encourage students to explore the limits of their creativity with interactive presentations, peer-to-peer teaching strategies, and manipulation of large-scale text.

In a content that is often described as rote and repetitive, this interactive projector will help students explore and experiment with the math content. When students can compare and contrast different methods to solving problems, and then identify, explain and present how and why one method is more effective, they gain a deeper understanding for the content while simultaneously appreciating the thought processes throughout their educational and professional careers.
