My Students

Do you remember when your teacher had to make transparencies to display student work for everyone to see? Well those days are long gone and a document viewer camera makes it so easy to quickly display student work for those teachable moments or to display a story for everyone to see well.

My students come to school eager to learn each day and technology helps to get and maintain their attention for important instructional content.

I work at a Title I school in Michigan with a diverse student population. Many of my students receive free and reduced lunch. School provides consistency for many of my students.

My Project

My students need an interactive document viewer camera to display books and their work for the whole class to see. We live in an age of technology and it is difficult to get and maintain student attention, By incorporating technology into the classroom as much as possible I am better able to meet the needs of all my students. With a document viewer camera I can demonstrate hands-on use of math manipulatives, project stories, and project student work for those priceless teachable moments immediately.

This project is important because getting funding for such enhancements to the classroom aren't available.

The document viewer camera will impact my current class of 31 Kindergarten students and many students in the future. This project will impact my students by keeping them engaged and allowing ALL my students to see important components of lessons that without otherwise would not.
