Seeing the Curriculum with a Laptop!!

My students need a laptop so I can use it with my projector. The laptop will allow me to visually enhance the curriculum. Every student learns better with a visual!

My Students

My students are incredibly awesome! In my classroom, most of the students come from all over the world and are learning English as a second language. Having such diversity in my class, we are all learning much more than our exciting curriculum. I love our lengthy and worldly discussions that certainly enhance the classrooms objectives.

I am blessed to have the opportunity to teach my students everything I know regarding math, science and life lessons.

The majority of the school is eligible free/reduced lunch. Despite the challenges they can not control, they have an intense passion for learning!! I want to be able to provide as much visual enhancements as I can to assist in learning and exploring.

My Project

Technology is lacking in the district that I work in and I do not want my students to suffer. I currently have a projector for the classroom, but I need a laptop to use with the projector. Every student learns better when they can "see" the objectives that are being taught. Not to mention, it makes learning much more fun!

A laptop will significantly enhance the curriculum and provide that visual enrichment that every student deserves!

I can't wait to supplement each of my math and science lessons with the assistance of the laptop (and my projector) Adding this piece of technology will be effective and productive for not only the English Learners in my room, but for all the students! I can't wait to explore the endless possibilities of enhancing the curriculum with the laptop, internet and projector!
