Projector for Class Laptop

My students need a digital projector that is compatible with my laptop computer.

My Students

When I use videos or whole-class computer activities in my classroom, I have to use the projector that is attached to my dinosaur computer. It becomes very frustrating to my students because the 15 year old computer that I use is extremely slow. I need a projector that works with my much faster laptop.

Our school is rural, and has an enrollment of about 250 students in the high school.

I teach all levels of math. I have students is grades 9-12 intermixed in my classes. I have about 110 different students in an average year. Of those students, about 20 go on to our Dual Credit College Algebra class and do very well. We are a low-income school district in Missouri, having 50-60% of our students on free and reduced lunch. I feel it is important to make the education these students get the best possible, so I do a lot of hands-on projects and real life applications in my classroom.

My Project

My students would benefit greatly from classroom instruction using this new projector. It is vitally important for my students and my school to maintain its focus on technology. My classroom needs a laptop compatible projector to make this happen, because we have to waste important instructional time while we wait on my old computer to load and run the programs I use daily. Please help my students learn math without having to wait on slow technology. Thank you in advance for your support!

Please donate to this project.

My students would benefit greatly by having this up-to-date technology available in my classroom. No more waiting and wasting instructional time means they will be able to learn the needed concepts for their future careers.
