My students need an interactive whiteboard to increase technology use and increase student participation and engagement in the lessons we learn.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are a group of motivated, high achieving 5th graders in a co-teach classroom. This means we have a larger group of students in the same room with two teachers all day. Our students don't have to transition from room to room, which allows us more flexibility in the day. However, it also means that a "class set" of anything is more than 30.
I am so proud to teach in a school where the overwhelming majority of students are hardworking and motivated to meet their goals.
However, because we aren't a turnaround school, we often don't receive the grants and funding that other schools in our district get. This puts the responsibility on the teacher's back to acquire funds for projects; I am so thankful we have a medium like DonorsChoose to help us accomplish this!
Technology is the future of our society, yet in some schools (like mine) we are very limited in what we can use day to day in our classrooms. Many schools are equipped with SMART technology that allows them to use their whiteboards like a computer screen, but my school has never received the funds for this.
Having an interactive whiteboard like this will allow my students to do learning activities that are fun, interactive games, which will reach our struggling students and hold their attention.
I am constantly searching for ways to improve my teaching and give my students new ways to engage with our curriculum and boost their learning.
