Mr. Graham from Newark DE is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

And... ACTION!

My students need these materials to create 21st-century art. With these iPads, cases, and stands I will create an animation center where students can bring their artwork to life.

My Students

My students are an energetic bunch of young individuals with more things on their minds than minutes in the day. They come from a grand mix of backgrounds, families, and situations. Bursting through the school's doors every morning is a swarm of elementary energy, carrying with them the baggage of their home life, their wants and desires, and their need for a thorough and well-rounded education.

In some cases, students are more concerned with getting something to eat today rather than their academic agenda.

They put their best foot forward, but like all of us, they can fall short sometimes. The range of needs in a classroom often go beyond the knowledge aspect and well into the need for community, hospitality, friendship, and love.

Our school is packed with educated, helpful, and willing teachers, who know that what they are doing is affecting the bigger picture for these students. Our staff works hard, and long, to support each student through the rough patches and ensure their success.

My Project

These iPads will be used to expose my students to the world of digital art. Through a tablet, students can explore digital drawing, photography, and animation. I will use these iPads and stands to create an animation center where students can bring their artworks to life. This will be the first time, for most students, to be the creators of animated works instead of just the consumer. Additionally, the techniques of stop-motion animation forces students to think about sequences and the whole picture. Through story mapping, and thinking about the sequence of events I will be able to tie my art class into common core standards for literature. This link to the core classroom will create a connected learning opportunity to inspire students to think critically about their reading as they transform stories into short animations.
