Mrs. Outman from Elk Grove CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Picture This!

My students need a document camera to increase visual learning which will, in turn, increase overall understanding.

My Students

Invigorating children to learn is my passion. How will my students learn to shine? Use a document camera to make everything live!

Today's children are tomorrow's future and technology will take them there.

I love the look in my students' eyes when they are learning something new. The document camera I am requesting can help foster that learning. I teach 6th grade at a rural school in California. My students are a diverse group of multicultural students from English language learners to highly gifted students with various learning needs and challenges. My students know that doing their best work is important and that their hard work will take them far in life. Their positive attitude shows that they are growing and learning.

My Project

We all know that technology can invigorate learning in a classroom. I have access to an overhead projector but this visual presenter will enhance the students' experience. The document camera I am requesting will do just that and more. It will increase my students' achievement, because increased visual learning increases student understanding. They will be actively engaged and interact with the lesson which yields the highest results of learning. Benjamin Franklin said, "Involve me and I learn." I believe the document camera will help my students be more involved, and therefore they will become successful learners.

With your help, I will be able to bring technology in my classroom.

Students will be more engaged in their lessons, so their learning will be enhanced. I will be able to see my students transform learning from books into real life applications and prepare them for their future.
