Technology in the Classroom

My students need a LCD projector and a wall projector screen.

Public speaking is one of the most important and scariest things a human being will ever do. Thus, it is essential for our students to gain practice speaking in front of an audience to gain comfort and ease when called upon to give a presentation for their job, or more importantly in college. For many degrees it is a requirement to create and present a thesis to a panel of professors before they are granted the degree in their field. By giving my students the practice today in the creation of PowerPoint presentations and the presentation of research I will be pushing my students to be prepared for the college of their choice. My hope is that when they get there they will already be prepared with the technological tools and skills necessary for them to become successful college students and part of the future workforce. I teach in a very high needs urban district that does not have very much access to technology that we take for granted in our everyday lives. My students are leaving high school with many shortcomings that does not leave them adequately prepared for college in many aspects. My plan is to allow my students the ability to practice these much needed skills and integrate it into my everyday lesson planning. I want my students to gain power in the classroom to help guide their own learning, due to the fact that so many of them lack power outside of it. By having a projector and projector screen I will be able to create a workspace where my students can gain practice in the creation and presenting of PowerPoint presentations to the class on a regular rotating schedule. This will enable me to always have research projects due with presentations at a high rate during the school year. My hope is that the idea of doing research and giving a presentation to a group of people no longer gives them the anxiety that I felt so much in college. I want them to look forward to getting up and presenting their research to help push the creative envelope to new levels within the classroom and beyond.
