As a second year teacher in NYC schools, I have been disheartened by the lack of technology, as well as by the lack of simple supplies. We have old textbooks, desks full of graffiti, and dirty barred windows. I teach eighth grade social studies and learned last year that the technology available to make social studies come alive does not exist in New York City. Much to my surprise, our school received a technology grant that gave us three Smart Boards, which are interactive whiteboards. I borrowed the single LCD projector in our school, and taught myself how to use the board. The Smart Board became a lively tool, and the kids LOVED it! They began coming to life and really enjoying social studies. I was able to show them video clips, sound bites, websites -- a multimedia variety of learning tools. Then the sad day came when the projector broke. My school cannot afford to fix or replace it. So now my kids are back to the old chalk board, and are sincerely saddened, as well as educationally deprived, by the loss. Please help us fund a new projector. Thank You!
