My students need a projector for multimedia lessons, projects, and engaging activities like video clips, prezi presentations, and power point!
Remember being in school when you were a kid and the teacher would put a thick, faded, transparency on a giant humming overhead with a blinding light? My students did too until my dinosaur overhead died this week! We're looking to upgrade our learning ASAP!
My students attend one of the last public all girls high schools on the Eastern Seaboard.
My girls are smart, hard working, independent, and defy gender and racial stereotypes that residents of Maryland's most impoverished city are quick to apply. They are the best Baltimore has to offer, and surprise me every day.
I am hoping to receive a multimedia projector with built in sound and powerful display capabilities. My girls and I are tired of charts on transparencies, and I am ready to upgrade to Prezi presentations (http://prezi.com/), multimedia analysis, and interactive PowerPoint charts and presentations!
My students will use this projector almost every day in the classroom to bring lessons to life. Instead of modeling a chart on an overhead transparency, they will have animated interactive examples with multimedia plugins to draw them in. Additionally, students will be able to create digital presentations of their own and teach others in the classroom! The literature we are studying is classic, but we're looking to learn it with the latest technology!
A lot of people assume that a school like mine, one that pulls in the brightest stars from urban blight and pools them together, is going to be automatically successful.
This is a fallacy! We have the same financial and social problems that any neighborhood school suffers. My girls are incredible learners with collegiate plans and think "scholarship and loans" from their ninth to twelfth grade! I want to give my girls something exceptional to match the effort they give every day.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
