Mrs. McKenna from Benton ME is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Oh Say, Can you See?

My students need an ELMO digital visual presenter to increase their learning.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Help our future citizens (and leaders) by aiding their learning with technology.

My third grade students live in rural Maine and most have very few opportunities to benefit from technology that is used every day.

As with any school, there is a wide range in students' abilities, various family make-ups and economic situations. One common goal between all of these students though is to learn and become effective members of their community.

My Project

An ELMO digital visual presenter would enable the students and me (the teacher!) to learn and teach more effectively and to share work and teach without worrying about making copies and/or wasting paper. Every classroom has students who want to share their work and a teacher who uses student examples to guide the students learning...on the spot. ELMO would help eliminate wasted time photocopying and creating overheads. ANYTHING that you want to share can be shared right away!

This is your opportunity to give students the opportunity to integrate technology and learn with ELMO.

Give them the chance to share their work and to see what I want to show (without worrying whether what I want to share is large enough for them to see). ELMO will enlarge and share all materials in color and in an instant.
