Technology for Our Youngest Learners

My students need a document camera to gain access to curriculum to help close the learning gap.

My Students

I teach an inclusion class of Kindergarten students in a Title One elementary school. In my classroom I have students who are visually impaired and students with other medical needs as well as typical peers from low income and homeless families that are in need of any advantage they can have to close the learning gaps.

In a world of technology that is ever changing I want to bring some of that technology into my Kindergarten classroom.

In order to gain access to curriculum my students need to see the curriculum on a large screen. We currently have a document camera that is outdated and does not recognize the newer technology, so I am unable to use it. My dream is for every child to have access to curriculum and to use this curriculum to create exciting and engaging lessons for our youngest learners.

My Project

My students need access to a document camera so that they can all see what I am teaching. When curriculum or books are projected on a screen, all students have access to it.

Through the use of the document camera students will also be able to project their work to share with each other.

It also gives them the opportunity to use their language skills to explain their work to their peers. I love to watch the faces of my students as they explain how they solved a problem or when they read a piece of writing they created as it projected for everyone to see.
