My Students

Everyday in my class, students explore and analyze a variety of topics in art, both past and present. To accomplish this, we need to have access to technology that will allow my students to research and explore artists that will open their minds and inspire them.

Students at my school are from several rural communities in the Midwest.

Sixty percent of our students are considered low income with little or no access to the Internet outside of school. My students are excited to learn, experience, and create new things, and I want to be able to give them the best possible opportunities to do so. Technology is a tool that engages students in learning and we really do not have access in my classroom to Chromebooks.

My Project

Having Chromebooks in my classroom will allow my students to complete research for their projects. They will be able to look up artists to use as inspiration as well as techniques to expand their knowledge of media use. Additionally, my students will be able to create digital portfolios of their work by uploading pictures and using google slides. They will be able write about art that they analyze in order to find meaning. Finally, they will be able to record and instantly access their work using their Chromebooks.

Chromebooks are an outstanding tool not only for their use in researching projects, but in the ability to organize the diverse amounts of activities my students will engage in.

In addition to being user friendly, Chromebooks make a diverse world of art instantly accessible to my students.The skills my students will gain are also vital to their future by sharpening their research, writing, and presentation skills.
