My students need a document camera to model and explain their solutions to problems and to enhance presentations they give to the class.
In today's digital world, it's difficult to achieve results without technology. Students need to learn how to use technology as a tool for innovation and creativity. This knowledge will help them to thrive as they continue their education or in the workplace.
My second grade students hail from a working class city that has seen most of its factories and jobs disappear.
A recent flood has left many homeless. This shrinking tax base has impacted funding to our schools, but hard working students and teachers helped our district receive an "Excellent" rating by the state for the 2011-2012 school year! The city has pulled together to offer shelter, food, and cleaning supplies for flood victims. It is this sense of community pride and hard-work ethic that make us known as the "Magic" city.
A simple document camera will allow my students to gain confidence in their speaking and problem-solving abilities. They will be able to easily showcase their solutions to math problems (with drawings or objects such as counting cubes or base ten blocks) to their fellow students. I can use the camera to model how to play partner math games, showcase exemplary writing samples, enlarge a text for shared reading, or give a science demonstration. The camera will also allow me to take pictures of students' work that I can save to their digital portfolio. I can share their work at parent conferences or at team meetings. At the end of the year, students can take home a digital record of their learning.
Technology naturally motivates children.
With guidance, my students will use it to communicate, problem solve, create, collaborate, and use critical thinking. These are life skills that will lead them to jobs that might not even exist yet. Your donation can change their future.
