Ms. Harrell from Dixon NM is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Modernizing Our Learning Environment!

My students need a Promethean ActivBoard Touch so that they can come to the board to solve problems, view video lessons, draw on top of the digital frameworks, and see tables, graphs, and maps.

My Students

I have a diverse classroom of 3rd and 4th graders who come from a cluster of small rural towns. Our students are a mixture of Hispanic, Native American, and Anglo-American kids from primarily low income homes. Because we have a small school, we teach multiple grade levels in each classroom. We are a community centered school where we all know one another and have a lot of community support.

I have a wonderful classroom dynamic and want to provide the students with the best resources available for their learning.

My students are creative, innovative, and very interested in the world outside of our small town. Providing our classroom with modern resources will help them to learn in ways that will make them more likely to succeed in high school and college.

My Project

My students need a Promethean ActivBoard Touch so that they can come to the board to solve problems, view video lessons, draw on top of the digital frameworks, and see tables, graphs, and maps. This interactive Promethean white board has a vast array of resources that will help bring our classroom into the modern world of digital learning. There are all kinds of visual enhancement tools that will help to reinforce lessons in math, science, geography, reading, writing and art. I cannot possibly explain all of them here, but you can look online at the 90,000 + free resources on Promethean planet.

I am particularly interested in the math tools that are available on this interactive whiteboard.

I can create math equations and games that students can come to the board to solve. I can pull up graphs, tables, fraction models, and use them to better illustrate math concepts. But the best part is that the students themselves can come to the board and manipulate the tools to help them work out problems. It is just an amazing resource that would make our classroom a much more interesting place to learn!
