Ms. Cruz from Buena Park CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Art + Technology = Innovative Students

My students need art supplies, a green screen stand, 6 headphone and microphone sets, and mini figures to create photos and video clips to demonstrate what they learn in class.

My Students

My kindergarten students are young, curious, and enthusiastic. They come to school with a variety of backgrounds. Some of them have had preschool, but many have had no prior school experience. Some are new to the country, and some have special needs. I teach at a Title I school and many of my students do not have access to technology or other resources at home. They have learned to use our shared iPads to take green screen pictures with our class green screen, and I want to expand their skills in technology and art.

These young minds will be our future, and I would like to teach with innovative materials that will prepare my students to be successful in today’s world.

My Project

With art supplies, my kindergarten students will be able to draw their own scenery and backgrounds for green screen pictures we take. They will be able to use the Klutz Lego Make Your Own Movie Kit and Mini Figures to make movies to retell stories they hear, or act out stories that they write, while using their own scenery. With the green screen stand, we can take our class green screen to our Big Buddies’ classroom and other locations in the school for our photo or movie “shoots.” The group set of Avid Educational Headphones with microphones will allow students to add their narration to photos or videos they create, using various educational apps.

Integrating art skills to create backgrounds of videos and pictures with green screen technology, along with voice recording is a powerful way to motivate and teach children skills in all school subjects.

In addition to acting out or retelling stories, students will be able to draw or take a picture of what they have learned, and use the headphones/microphones on iPads or Chromebooks to record and explain their learning.
