Mr. Rovnak from Danbury CT is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students TI-80IIS calculators and computer headphones to develop precision and accuracy in math calculations and be able to listen to Screencastify lessons for better understanding in class.
My students come from diverse backgrounds. Our school often has the greatest ethnic diversity of all the schools in the state. The majority of them receive free or reduced-price lunch. Our school encourages project-based learning, especially those activities that promote the development of 21st-century skills.
Like most kids, my students thrive in a learning environment in which they are actively engaged and have the resources for achieving success.
Our school encourages technology-based learning which typically prepares students for high demand professions but also has a side effect of increased screen and seat time. I like incorporating technology activities but also want to keep my classes physically active and provide supportive learning environments.
Doing math without a calculator? Ouch! My students are trying hard but they lack the resources for true success. Additionally, I take the time to enhance my lessons with Screencastify and find media sources to help with understanding, but in a class our 30 students, headphones are needed so that a proper learning environment can be maintained. Headphones allow students to stay more focused and the calculators help the students the put their attention on learning the new skill and not lose time by making mistakes with basic computations. Students care more when we show that we have invested in them.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
