Ms. Cohen from New York NY is requesting technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

It's so big now! I can see It! I can understand it!

My students need a digital projector to attach to the class computer to enlarge educational materials and allow the entire class to see and participate.

I am a Special Education Teacher in Central Harlem with a multi-faceted and and multi-handicapped population that is eager to learn. I am requesting a digital projector which will make it possible for my students to see the world enlarged and enhanced through technology. I use a computer in my classroom to engage the students, and to provide a multi-sensory learning environment. My students respond to visual media, and the integration of technology with everyday curricula is necessary to insure that all of my students have the same chance to successfully complete their work.

The students currently congregate around and stare at one computer screen whenever technologically oriented material is presented. This makes it difficult for all of the students to effectively view the given learning matter. The students have special learning styles, and technology is a format that is recommended in their individual educational plans. The use of a digital projector would allow the images to be readily viewed and assist with student focus. Whenever my students see a projected image the learning environment becomes livelier and the students respond at a higher rate. A digital projector allows the entire class to be participants.

With a classroom projector we would create class projects that involve everyone with their special gifts and talents. Our literacy units would take on new life as the students are able to write and then type into the computer work that is "published on screen" creating a sense of pride and ownership. We are in the process of creating an imovie, and would like to do several other computer based projects, because this is a valuable learning mode for students who are multi-handicapped. With a digital projector all students would be able to view the work at one time,and to help each other with editing written work, adding sound and clearly visualizing a completed project. One element of visual media is its lasting impact.

Funding this proposal allows you to be part of a special gift made to special students, and to know that all the new and exciting projects that my class completes with the new technological equipment is due to your generosity of heart.
