Hooray! This project is fully funded

Wouldn't it be wonderful if students could use a good quality digital camera to take pictures of school events such as author readings, funny hat day, special assemblies, dance festivals, science fairs and other special events? As the computer lab teacher, I have access to printers and computers but do not have a digital camera for my school's students to use. The students would be able to take pictures, print or adjust them for printing, and then write articles to go along with their visual representations. They could produce a high-quality school newsletter. Unfortunately, cheaper cameras produce unclear images and do not have many features. Technology is always changing and I would love to teach a group of third, fourth and fifth graders how to use a high quality digital camera which can also record for a few minutes. Their work could also be displayed throughout the school. Next year these "trained" students could pair up with newer digital camera users. Who knows? Together we might produce future star journalists. PLEASE HELP US SOAR INTO THE 21ST CENTURY WITH TECHNOLOGY. Thank you for your time.
