My students need a document camera to take our classroom to the next level. This will make it easier for ALL of the children to see examples of what I am teaching.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My classroom has technology from the last century. I have to make a copy of text using overhead transparencies. Due to the high cost of overheads, I am not always able to "show" the children examples of what I am teaching.
My students are enthusiastic visual learners.
They like to see and do. They like to see examples of what we are learning. Our classroom is filled with diverse learners. I have students who come from different states and countries. There are are several different languages and cultures represented in our room. A Document Camera, will help to bridge the learning gap.
My students need a document camera to take our classroom to the next level. This will make it easier for ALL of the children to see examples of what I am teaching. Because I have students who come from different cultures and backgrounds, I believe that a Document Camera will greatly enhance their learning. Many of my students are English Language Learners, and they learn better when they see an example of what we are discussing. This technology will allow me to post things on a screen so that they will have a much better understanding of the materials they are learning. This technology will also help children to focus on what we are learning. The print and pictures will be large enough for all children to access the information, not just the children who are sitting in front of the board.
I appreciate any and all help that you can provide our classroom.
We are grateful to you for taking the time to consider our request for new technology in our class. We have limited technology, and this investment in our classroom would be the first step in bridging the technology gap and bringing every student to the front of the class!
