Interactive Whiteboard for Middle School Science Classroom
Organized by: Jennifer Darrah
Richard Yates School within Chicago Public School system doesn't have an interactive whiteboard in the entire school. We're a school that is suffering from the currently political fight in Chicago. Our school hasn't integrated technology into the classroom or the school. This is my third year at the school. I have been unsuccessful at relating to our principal the impact of learning with access to an interactive board. I hope to overcome this failure with the help from the Crowdrise community. Our population of the students at Richard Yates are 81.6% Hispanic, 14.4% Black and 2.8% White. Our school is 97.5% Low Income, 35% Diverse Learners and 30% English Language Learners. We have several hurdles that I need to address in my class English Language Learners, Diverse Learners, and below grade level students. When I have used interactive whiteboards in my class in the past, students have perk up! Our current situation the projector's quality is so low the details of the images are lost. This becomes a missed learning opportunity. I dream of a classroom where students want to come and learn. Rich with clear interactive technology and images so students can see the detail of the images and the concepts presented in class. I'm seeking your support to start the process of changing my classroom to a learning enrich the environment. Your donation will revolutionize my classroom into the 21st-century technology-infused learning environment! You'll be making a contribution to the students' development of critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration so they can compete in school and life.
