Mrs. Ferguson from Santa Rosa CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Modernizing A/V for the Classroom

My students need a working system for using media in the classroom, specifically a flat screen and Apple TV, so that we no longer rely on the outdated projector and broken speaker that we currently use.

My Students

Ours is a great school that draws from all over the County. It is known for its privilege, but a surprising number of students are underprivileged. They come from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities. In the last two years, I have had students from Kenya, Vietnam, Syria, Russia, India, Ireland, Pakistan, Eritrea, and different parts of the United States. They all have so much in common and inspire me as they go through the tough transition from children to teenagers, especially with the trauma we've faced in Sonoma County. These students have faced loss and fear with grace and courage, and I love getting to work with them every day.

I also feel privileged to join their parents and teachers in inspiring them to discover and develop their abilities as writers and as thinkers.

They are our future and they each have something amazing to share!

My Project

There are so many videos and resources online that can enhance my students' learning, but we have an outdated projector and screen with a broken speaker attached to my desktop computer. This limits what we can do. I rely on Google Classroom to make classwork and resources available to my students. Yet, it's hard to be inspired if you can hardly see or hear the TED talk your teacher is projecting.

With a flat screen, Apple TV, and soundbar, I could project any audio or video file from my laptop, which would enhance any lesson.

I could also project slideshows or shared student work, which helps as we encourage revision.
