Mrs. Beltz from Philadelphia PA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Projectors Bring Learning to Life

My students need an Epson Projector to enhance their learning experiences. Using technology in the classroom allows students to be exposed to a multitude of learning that they may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience.

My Students

I am the teacher of a wonderful first grade inclusion classroom. My class consists of Deaf and hard-of-hearing students as well as regular education students. Having diversity in my classroom has been a wonderful way to introduce children to the many different ways of communicating with others. In addition, it promotes tolerance and acceptance.

Technology is a key component to reaching students who learn through different modalities.

I have found that students are more engaged and motivated to learn when content is presented in an interactive way.

My Project

Imagine sitting in a classroom with 25 students, one teacher, and a workbook, trying to learn geometry. ....Is that a triangle? a square? Since they all left their telescopes at home, it's going to be a pretty long lesson. It's not just math either. With students in my class who are Deaf/ Hard of Hearing, access to visuals is key to learning.

That's where you come in!

Please help my kids see the information they are trying to learn (plus a Go Noodle video or two for a brain break!) by funding my project for a projector. Thank you so much!
