College Begins in High School

Help me give my students technology experience on an Apple MacBook Air.

My Students

I like the diversity of my students. I marvel at their skill with technology. I have witnessed a stigma with our younger population. Young kids are rude, misbehaved and lazy. I have not found that to be true about my 8th graders or my 11th graders. Some just lack certain behavior skills and as a teacher besides teaching them my core content I am also able to teach them the simple yet powerful tools to succeed. I am especially excited to see many Latino students stepping up and discovering their potential. I am confident in my students positive impact on the future.

My Project

The Apple MacBook Air laptop will help me create better lesson plans by letting me do things at home. I can also use the laptop to let them create movies like historical skits. My students could use this MacBook laptop to create presentations. My students could also make propaganda posters on this MacBook laptop and have them displayed all across my classroom. I can use this MacBook laptop to create Kahoot games on so my students can have a more fun and interactive way to review for quizzes and exams. I will also be able to use this MacBook laptop to better monitor my students' grades and submissions at home. Technology experience will help them to further share ideas and increase their learning.
