Projecting Compounds For The College-Bound

My students need an LCD projector.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Learning to take notes and engage material via digital media is critically important for my high school chemistry students as they navigate the science curriculum en route to college. My students and I have been gradually increasing the use of technology for instruction in our classroom. For example, we will soon incorporate an audience response system that utilizes wireless clickers to allow for facile student polling at strategic times throughout a lesson. The problem: notes that build foundational knowledge and the results of such polls cannot be displayed without an LCD projector. Our school has one LCD that teachers may check out, but availability is scarce due to a student population that borders on two thousand kids. I am asking you to help complete our classroom's technological set-up. With an LCD in class everyday, I will be able to project key concepts, saving valuable instructional time and allowing me to teach my students how to take excellent notes. This fundamental skill will not only help improve achievement in our classroom, but will also prepare each student for the rigors of college and professional lectures. Additionally, the projector will allow me to fully utilize the audience response technology by displaying graphs and tables of response data; this information will help us make data-driven decisions about how to master previous and upcoming core learning goals. Your financial support will directly affect my students' classroom learning experience and increase their preparedness for college. In an economic and cultural landscape in which the use of digital technology is standard, students need as many chances as possible to learn and interact in this way. Please help them do so.
