Thanx http://www.donorschoose.org! (using donors to get equipment for my PC Classroom)
I finally have a brand new Sharp XR-32X Multimedia DLP XGA Projector that produces 2500 lumens with a 2200:1 contrast ratio. Thank God, we can now view my Smart Notes without going blind. Here's my donor site, http://www.donorschoose.org/calcpage2010
This is all thanx to http://www.donorschoose.org where I posted last year that I needed a new projector for all my Smart Board and YouTube work. Two kind donors surfaced during the summer and funded the project. I confirmed the order in September, but the original item was out of stock. I ordered the Sharp projector and got it in October. However, its been sitting in a box until now as we didn’t have the right ceiling mount. So, thanx also go to the Tech Dept for finally making me a decent mount!
I will be completing an online thank you packet this week on http://www.donorschoose.org which involves my students writing thank you letters to the donors and my taking pictures of them using the projector with my Smart Airliner Slate. I also have to get permission slips from the parents to display these pictures on their site. Once this packet is complete, I get more points enabling me to ask for more funding!
