LCD Projector For High Needs School

My students need an overhead projector to help create and drive visual engagement opportunities throughout our lessons.

My Students

Do you ever remember sitting in a classroom thinking "I just don't get it." Then, your teacher showed you an image, chart, or video and you had that instant moment of clarity. Unfortunately, my students are starting to lose those moments as our classroom projector slowly begins to die.

We are a high needs school district dedicated to facilitating the learning goals of a diverse group of at-risk learners.

Everyday, I teach high school students who are lacking basic grade level reading, writing, and content skills. However, my students have an incredible eagerness to learn, and they are blooming with a potential that they have yet to realize.

My Project

As a social studies teacher, technology and projector integration play an intricate role within the classroom. Imagine traveling to far-off places, visiting historic sites, and browsing the libraries of the world - all without leaving the classroom. The most complex lessons can be brought to life and simplified through digital integration. A projector can help improve student performance by encouraging greater classroom participation and increase the retention of the content being displayed. Projectors even allow for interactive classroom simulations, digital imaging-based presentations, and engaging Internet excursions. Students truly get so much more from the curriculum when it is experienced through visual aids.

Research has shown that 40% of students are auditory learners, another 40% are visual learners, and the remaining 20% are kinesthetic learners.

If I allow my current projector to die, then I could effectively lose 40% of my visual learners who need to be actively engaged through images.
