Math & Science Interactive Learning Devices Needed!
My students need 12 Promethean handheld, interactive devices with accessories.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
In any classroom, experimentation and collaboration with others are critical for conceptual learning. Help my students deepen their understanding of math and science by allowing them to immediately view the class responses and to receive immediate feedback during daily classes.
My students attend 1 of 34 of what our state has designated a "High Performance/High Poverty" school.
Additionally, our building and its contents were completely destroyed during Hurricane Katrina. As diverse as our city, our school is a Title I public school, where we work daily toward building a better future... one student at a time.
These handheld devices will allow my students to work interactively with me and each other through our classroom Promethean Board. Allowing students to experiment and work collaboratively with their teacher and peers improves their ability to construct a deeper conceptual understanding of mathematics and science. The ActivExpression2 devices will allow us to view each others' responses to the guiding questions that assist in building new knowledge and deeper understanding. As students enter their answers, the teacher and peers are able to provide instant feedback for the best understanding of the material.
In today's fast-paced world, timing is critical.
This project is vital to fostering the collaboration and attention to detail that are essential in a society driven by mathematics and science. As the students in my class become better thinkers, they will have a greater chance of succeeding in a world that may otherwise close its doors to children from low-income backgrounds.
