The demand for technological literacy in our country is quickly rising, and students are fast outperforming their teachers and parents when it comes to fluency with new technologies. One of my goals for the coming school year is to integrate more technology into the classroom on a daily basis to help students meet this demand. This year, I will teach nearly 25 enthusiastic learners in a medium-sized public school in rural South Carolina. My "scholars" are a diverse bunch, including students in special education and English Language Learners. My students are tech-savvy and have the ability to use technology to create content out of the classroom, including iMovies, create albums of their own songs on Garage Band, and create their own blogs. As their teacher, I want to teach them about how these technologies can help them learn and guide them in the process of creating educational content, while also keeping them engaged. Bringing Flip Video Camcorders into the classroom will allow me to bring media and technology into the classroom on a daily basis. Scholars will finally be able to create multi-media projects to express what they have learned from their science studies, outside of just the age-old PowerPoint presentation. They'll be able to engage in "sidewalk" talk with their peers around the school building to help make sense of the world around them. Imagine how that will strengthen their ability to reason and think critically! I'll be able to videotape classroom discussion around our big ideas, weekly lab investigations, and capture their class presentations. Students will be able to analyze the video to determine the richness of their conversation and make changes to their group work. We'll be able to share our videos on our own version of YouTube, so students will be producing work for authentic audiences. Your donation will help my FORMER and FUTURE scholars understand the important role that technology can play in their learning. They will learn how to use technology safely and creatively. These Flip Video Camcorders will acknowledge their outside love of technology as legitimate and important. Will you help me raise $2,000 to buy 15 Flip Video Camcorders?
