My students need a media cart to aid in clearly projecting images from our document camera or laptop.
My students attend an inner city school where technology is not always readily available. We are fortunate enough to have a ELMO document camera and projector, but we do not have a media cart to aid clearly projecting the images.
My students are sixth graders who attend an inner city elementary school.
They are hard-working, motivated, and determined to continue to make growth and progress. They are helpful and giving, eager to learn, and responsible. My students deserve to have the tools to aid in them in their success!
Have you ever been the short kid in the back of the class who had a difficult time seeing what was going on in the front of the classroom? I was! Fortunately, today's technology allows lessons to be bigger and brighter! We use an ELMO document camera and projector to view sample problems, student exemplars, movies and videos, PowerPoints, and more! The trouble is, we do not currently have a media cart to support this technology. A media cart would enable us to put the document camera and project in one place that would be the correct height for displaying information. The media cart also comes with a locked cabinet where we can safely store other technology (laptops, iPads, etc.) when we obtain them and when necessary! This spacious media cart provides a stationary place for our materials, while also allowing space for me to teach from the cart! As our classroom is small, having the document camera and projector on wheels allows us to make the most of our space!
Your donations will make a difference because my students will not have to remain in their seats for the entire six hour day.
The freedom to easily move our technology around the room allows for my students to work wherever in the room makes them comfortable! It is essential to learning to be flexible, and this media cart will enable us to do just that!
