Ms. Velagic from Goshen OH is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Language Arts Goes High Tech!

My students need 5 digital tablets and 1 mounted t.v. with Apple t.v. To promote a fully digital learning environment (eBooks, research, instant access to educational videos)

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Can you imaging walking into a classroom with news instantly streaming? Where a teacher displays her class web page with instructions, videos, editorial cartoons, examples of student work, etc. all through a television large enough for all kids to see? Information at you fingertips? It can happen!

My students are a diverse population of 6th grade students from a rural Ohio community.

We are an Appalachian Title 1 district with 58% of our students on free and reduced lunch. However, we have an amazing group of boys and girls who come to school and love learning because of the environment we strive to provide. Our school is an old building, but we do all we can to make it an amazing place to come and learn.

My Project

The materials I am seeking will bring my classroom into the 21st century! Kindle Fires will allow my students to access instant information on the web as we conduct research for project, read eBooks, listen to audio books, and it would allow instant access to my teacher web page at any time! The Apple TV and 42" television will allow a wonderful visual display for live news, videos, interactive games that promote learning, a way for the teacher to display the class web page, student work examples, and more! The television would be an integral and interactive piece of the classroom and would bring learning alive in a format big and bold enough for all students to see and enjoy.

This project will enhance and change the learning environment by providing a cutting-edge digital experience.

I will be able to use a headphone splitter that will allow students to listen to audio books on the Kindle Fire tablets. This is a large help for some of my special needs students and allows them to truly enjoy literature in a unique format. The Apple TV/television will work together and will allow me to project learning games that will engage students fully. Learning will be enhanced!
