Projecting Our Future

My students need a new projector to see my multi-media math lessons! We cannot see with our current projector. It's ready to burn out and they do not make bulbs any more.

My Students

"I can't see the board. "It is so dark in here." These are the voices of my students every day in math. We are in need of a new projector! My projector is ten years old and bulbs are no longer made for it.

I currently teach 87 eighth grade students.

Our school consists of sixth to twelfth grade students. We are from a small rural school district. Many of my students come from economically disadvantaged homes. They do not have access to much technology at home. All of my students are interested in learning and using any new technology that is available. Some of my students only have access to computers here at school. We have had severe budget cuts over the past few months. We are currently on a technology freeze. When my projector burns out, that is it! No more technology in my math classroom. My students are in great need of this resource, so I can continue to expose them to new technology!

My Project

A new projector will allow me to continue to teach math using multimedia resources! My projector turns off repeatedly throughout the day, which causes interruptions and down-time. We need a projector that will allow my students to clearly see my whiteboard. My projector allows me to provide my students with interactive whiteboard lessons. Students come to the board to manipulate math terms, practice problems, and interact with websites. Without a new projector, we will have to return to boring chalk and textbook lessons. By receiving a new projector, my students will learn through incorporating technology into math. We use Edmodo, Khan Academy, AAA Math, and Brain Pop websites to learn the math curriculum. Without this new projector, we will not be able to access interactive, multimedia math content!

Please donate to our project!

My students are patiently waiting to see clearly with a new projector for our classroom! My students will be able to actively engage in learning by receiving a new projector. We will be able to continue to learn through engaging and interactive content! This project will impact my current and future students! I hope this new projector will last for years to come, to continue to provide my students with interesting math lessons!
