Technology Captivates Long-term Education

My students need a projector for interactive learning to be long-term learning. My class will benefit from 21 subscriptions to TIME For Kids to be updated with current events.

My Students

How has technology helped you be successful both in your career and life? Technology connects people to endless research and lifetime learning opportunities. My students have not yet discovered how learning can be interactive and exciting using devices. A projector will change the way they learn.

My class has a variety of students.

Half my students are ESE and the other half are ESOL learners. My 5th grade class has not even one student performing at grade level. The majority of the students are first generation in the USA, meaning parents have trouble assisting them in home learning due to the language barrier. The majority of my students have been retained in a school year because of learning development. Even though, my class struggles with learning material they are full of energy and inquiry to prepare themselves for middle school. The school unfortunately has no budget for technology and other learning resources.

My Project

A projector will help my students envision a future of hope and education. I plan on doing interactive learning to prove learning is fun. I will use the projector for all subjects math, language arts, and science. I will teach them how to do research and use basic computer programs to be ready for middle school. My students will learn that learning is fun and how it connects to life experience. These resources will help my students connect learning to the outside world.

Donations will make a significant impact for my students.

My students idea of learning are text books, paper, and pencil. In today's society I believe children should have the opportunity to learn with technology. I will like to have an opportunity to affect these students education experience before they move on to middle school. I believe if I show them how learning can be captivating it will change their education forever.
