I am an 11th grade English teacher in a diverse urban school on the west side of Buffalo. I see so many amazing high school students every day.
I want my students to be additionally engaged in English through PowerPoint instruction and activities. It would offer a supplement to instruction for students to really understand the topics presented to them through PowerPoint lessons. Additionally, students will be able to learn PowerPoint and give presentations through this program during the school year. In order to achieve this, I need a multimedia projector. The only obstacle that I have now is finding the resources to do it.
I believe that multimedia projectors are a key component in the classroom of the future. Classrooms have changed dramatically over the last decade with the advent of new technologies and equipment developed to make teaching and learning more diversified and interactive. Today, more teachers than ever are using multimedia projectors in the classroom providing an alternative way of teaching. By not forcing a teacher to rely solely on books, a multimedia projector makes more educational information available to students. It changes conventional habits and rituals in the classroom. Multimedia projectors go above and beyond the chalkboard and overhead projector. I do not want my students to crowd around a computer monitor to view presentations, Web sites or training programs. Multimedia projectors are becoming the centerpiece of classroom technology hubs that directly engage students and add impact to each lesson.
I want my students to gain appreciation of high tech instruction to better prepare them for college. However, with a limited amount of resources, I cannot make learning as meaningful as it should be. You will make it possible for my students to engage in English instruction using modern technology. This is an experience that they will truly enjoy and remember throughout their education. What a great gift you will be giving my students!
