Dr. I. from Ashburn VA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Building Global Relationships with Global Book Talks/Trailers

My students need readily and immediate access to global technology (and video/photography equipment) as part of our global initiative across their core content classes. They need a camera, a GoPro and memory cards.

My Students

My students are ready to shoot for the moon as we prepare for a global/digital book talk exchange over the course of the entire school year. We are excited at the thought of being able to "step into" a classroom in Brazil from our classroom and work on collaborative projects with students in Brazil.

My students are energetic, engaging and excited about working with their peers around the world this year through global collaboration.

My school is highly diverse and embraces that diversity through differentiated instruction, "out of the box" thinking, and opportunities where students are the leaders in their own education. Motivation and achievement are words they hear every day. They want to learn and I want them to learn without having to worry if we have the lab that day or not. Since they use technology as a standard form of communication between themselves now, incorporating it into the daily classroom environment will be easy and will allow them to learn to the maximum and achieve to their highest potential. We are One to the World and my students are aiming high this year! By using technology the 8th graders at my school will be better prepared for the digital world that awaits them through 100% engagement.

My Project

By having tablets, the storage unit, and constant power sources for the devices, my students will utilize technology in all of their classes, including their electives. The biggest event we will engage in a yearlong global/digital book talk between our county and schools in Brazil and Florida. Since my school is a technology based school, everyone wants access to the limited resources available. Having a class set of tablets & cameras will allow my students to transport and use a device in any of their classes: English, math, science, and social sciences. As a team, we teachers want our students using technology across the curriculum and in support of each class, making the connections between the classes deeper and more meaningful. A storage cabinet will allow for easy housing and protection of the devices and the power strips will meet all safety requirements. Of course, cleaning the devices will be a daily chore, as there will be over 400 students using the devices on any given day

Moving instruction and student learning into the 21st century through global education is the #1 goal of my school.

By engaging all learners, even the most reluctant, in activities that promote not only 100% engagement, but authentic engagement, as well as honing of skills needed for college and beyond, my students will develop critical thinking skills, stronger communication skills, and expanding technology skills. Using technology (digital, video, & photo) will accomplish all of that and more!
