Ms. Bernacchi from Chicago IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a way to visualize and manipulate math. With the addition of an Elmo and Presenter my students will be able to share, discuss, and add to each other's work with ease!
My students are from low income neighborhoods all throughout Chicago. There is a big push to get more and more technology into the classrooms and into the hands of the students. While our Math Department has been obtaining class sets of graphing calculators, Chromebooks, and Elmos, these have to be shared amongst the 12 teachers in the department. This does not provide consistent access to the technology that can help them dig deeper and give visual representations of the concepts they are learning.
The addition of a document camera and presenter can help put the math in the hands of the student. Too many times the classroom focuses on the teacher demonstrating mathematical concepts.
With the document camera students have an easy way to share their approaches to a mathematical problem, making them the focus of the class and not the teacher.
This encourages building on each other's ideas and discussing other methods to arrive at a solution.
The presenter will make manipulation of any document easy, allow the teacher and students to add to any notes or problems. Bringing typical classroom notes to life.
