It's Time to Get Interactive!
My students need this interactive whiteboard so they can access all of the wonderful resources it offers as well as the internet.
Short attention span cure! These first graders need a mobile teacher! The interactive whiteboard I am requesting will allow me to continue to teach and write on the board while walking around the classroom.
This district is in a very low socioeconomic area.
Many of the families at the school receive free or reduced lunch and have a difficult time just paying their bills. The school is in desperate need of updating and with the state budget that doesn't look like it is going to happen any time soon. Besides this minor setback, these first graders are eager to learn. Technology is one thing that really gets their attention and gets them interested in learning.
This interactive whiteboard puts tons of resources at the teacher's fingertips! It is like taking the computer with you all around the room. I can access the computer wirelessly and project it on a large screen for the students to see. There are all kinds of math, language arts, science and social studies templates and graphic organizers built right in. They are only a click away. It also eliminates the need for a never ending supply of white board markers! I can prepare a lesson in advance and save it for the next day. Or I can go back and access an old lesson for a student that may have been absent. There is also a clicker component that can be added on later so the students can input their answers and instant feedback is sent right to the mobile unit!
This project is important because it allows the teacher to get away from the front of the classroom!
It helps the students learn by getting them more engaged and getting their attention with all of the graphics and videos available.
