Technology for Teaching — Help Purchase Projectors via DonorsChoose.org and PNC will match your gift

Two of our preschool teachers, Miss Nikki and Miss Samantha, seek support for a projector for each of their classrooms to accompany interactive whiteboards, which were previously funded via DonorsChoose.org.  YOUR GIFT WILL BE MATCHED BY THE GENEROSITY OF PNC.

Miss Nikki, Lead Preschool Teacher, writes:

Our class is made up of 20 intelligent, energetic and culturally diverse students. They range in ages of 3-5 years, thus among them there are multiple skill levels. Most of them come from low-income homes and many are English language learners. One thing they all have in common is a thirst for learning! They learn in diverse ways and my goal is to meet their various educational needs. This entails creating fun and challenging lessons that will elevate their skill levels.

This past June, through the generosity of Donors Choose funders, fundraising for an interactive white board for my classroom was completed. Now, all that is required is a projector to accompany this technology that will ultimately change the way teaching takes place in my classroom!  Through this piece of technology, students will have a new method to demonstrate their knowledge of a subject through touching, drawing, writing and viewing content.

The board will in turn provide quick feedback about their work. Thus, teachers will have another mode of identifying individual strengths and weaknesses in various subject areas which will influence future lessons and activities.

Miss Samantha, Lead Preschool Teacher, writes:

Every day, the children in my preschool classroom are learning new words. Imagine, when reviewing a word that a child does not understand, that I can project an image onto our interactive white board! Instead of making a note, getting to a computer, printing it out, and bringing it in the next day, we would have instant access to so much information.  Using pictures is one of the best ways to help English Language Learners understand new vocabulary. Combining our interactive white board with a projector will allow me to help my students understand more than ever before, presenting illustrated versions of a new language to them in real time.
