I teach at a public high school in a low-income neighborhood of Richmond, California. All students receive free lunch and many are newcomers, learning English as a second language. With varied English levels and the obvious varied learning styles of all students, visuals and power point presentations, as well as video clips are extremely important parts of my lesson.
Due to a finite amount of resources, I do not have a functioning projector this year.
A functioning projector and all of its components would enhance student learning and tech literacy for all of my students.
Living in the Bay Area, it is an absolutely necessity for students to be tech literate. Many of my high schoolers will join the workforce after graduation, and it is the assumption that they know how to use varied forms of technology. This future-preparedness starts at school.
Whether it's the way they receive or present information, a digital projector is an essential piece of the tech-equation in the classroom.
Students will not only have a better understanding of the lesson through visual and written information, but a better understanding how to use technology themselves in student-led presentations with a projector in our classroom.
