Mrs. Anderson from Holdenville OK is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Lights, Camera, Discussion!

My students need a document camera in the classroom. Document cameras are a great tool for teachers. They help create more class discussion and participation.

My Students

I teach in a rural community. Our school has about 300 students Pre-K through 12th grade. This environment provides a strong sense of community where teachers know all of the children and families. We see most parents several times a week for drop-off and pick-up. Many of the children have been in classes together since Pre-K creating many interesting, sibling-like relationships.

Even though our school is located in a rural area, the students deserve every opportunity and have resources available to them to help them become productive successful citizens.

The students at our school work hard and are eager to achieve success. They have developed good character skills and go up and beyond to help a fellow classmate as well as themselves reach their academic goals.

My Project

More schools are looking for ways to enhance their students' learning experience through technology. One way to increase the students' enthusiasm for their schoolwork and provide them with an interactive learning experience is through the use of document cameras in the classroom. Here are a couple of ways how we would use a document camera.

1.

Reading: Place a picture book under a document camera. As you read aloud to the class, students can follow along with the text or just listen as they look at the pictures.

2. Math: Money, counting blocks, protractors, and other math tools can be placed under the document camera. Teachers and students can work with these manipulatives to solve math problems as the rest of the class watches.
