Mrs. Caccamo from Sacramento CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Interactive Whiteboard for My Active Science Smarties

My students need an interactive whiteboard for daily classroom use.

  • $1,597 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My students are simply the best. They are technologically savvy and curious. I teach 8th grade Physical Science in a diverse Title 1 school. Although I teach highly talented young people, I still have a great need to keep them engaged and focused on a daily basis. I use multiple means to reach each and every one of them.

Being able to combing high technology into my Science curriculum is not fiscally possible through normal budgetary means at this time. However, I teach and believe strongly in hands-on inquiry based Science. Hands-on includes labs, PowerPoint projects, and group presentations. Technology is part of all of this

The interactive whiteboard will enhance my students' achievements making their work relevant and current. My students will be able to do more than just display their work. They will be able to make their Science work "pop" and give them ownership of their daily classwork and group projects. Graphing and data tables will be enhanced. In addition power of an interactive whiteboard gives me power to move among my students while they work without missing a beat. My lessons will flow with the use of scaffolding design and enable me to reach my diverse population of young scientists.

Your help will ensure that my students have every opportunity to show me that they "get it" every day. The technology of an interactive whiteboard, provided with your help, will bring my (our) students' work to life. You will make it possible for my students to achieve by means of hands-on demonstrations. I know my students are up to this technological challenge and you can help with your support.
