My Students

My students are bright and enthusiastic learners that are making the best of these challenging circumstance. I work in a Title I school in urban North Long Beach. With nearly all of my school receiving free or reduced lunch, all of the complications connected with Covid-19 have hit our community hard. Many of my students are on their own to complete assignments as their parents are essential workers and many families are unstable due to lost jobs. Some families have many children taking turns to share a single computer for assignments. This is a stressful time for so many families.

Despite so many challenges and stresses, my students put effort into their work and are are motivated, funny, positive, and most of all, they lift each other up every day.

They are a group that every teacher dreams of. Distance learning has had its' share of challenges, but seeing my students persevere and take ownership of their learning has given me a positive outlook on everything. We are grateful for any support during this challenging time.

My Project

Distance learning is a challenge! But it is a challenge that we are approaching head on. I am so proud of the tenacity and eagerness to learn that I have seen in my students. A document camera would make it so that I can write and students can see it in real time, making it easier for them to understand lessons and helping to shift back to normalcy, as this was a strategy we used with this tool in our regular classroom. With this document camera, I would be able to write on a piece of paper and the camera would project it onto my screen, which I would be able to screen share with my students in real-time.

Through this project, I am hoping to get a small document camera so that I can project from a paper onto my computer screen for students to see during distance learning lessons, which will allow my students to better understand lessons, increasing accessibility to learning.

In the classroom, we used our document camera every day. It allowed us to project pages onto the overhead projector so that students can see them and follow along. In the classroom, our document camera was a hard worker.

Fast-forward to the crazy world of distance learning. During online lessons, I am able to write on a paper and hold it up to my computer camera for students to see, but that is challenging and many have a hard time seeing on their screens. I watch students squint and struggle to see, and I am watching learning opportunities lost. With this document camera and these pens, I will be able to increase student participation and in turn, understanding through synchronous, accessible lessons.
