Mr. Brice from Brandywine MD is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creating a VLOG Experience

My students need an Apple iPad tablet and Acer Aspire laptop to take professional quality images and edit them to create a VLOG that tells their stories of what they learned in class and on field trips.

My Students

Currently, I teach in a low-income, high needs high school. My students are part of what's called the IT Academy, which from 9th to 12th grade they learn different computer science skills and earn certifications. In their 9th grade year, they learn about IT Fundamentals, 10th Grade is Web Development, 11th they learn Python Programming Language in AP Computer Science Principles, and finally, in their 12th Grade Class, they learn Java in AP Computer Science A.

The skills that my students learn in this class have a chance to permanently impact their lives for the better.

These classes can give them the tools needed to make them College and Career ready. Its so important that we can provide these services to them so that we can change their path in life.

My Project

A lot of the students in my program love using technology on a daily basis. To enhance their learning and to tie their interest into a day-to-day routine. I want to create an environment in which we can start taking high quality videos to edit and post to a class VLOG (Video Blog). Parents will then be able to see first hand what their students are working on and interact with the class and school.

This will allow a whole community experience when it comes to class and answer the day old question of parents: "What did you do today in school?"

The Apple iPad that we requested will be used to capture the high quality video of our projects in class. Since the tablet is a technology that most people are comfortable with and very portable, plus cheaper than some high-end cameras, it's ideal for this task. The Acer Aspire laptop has the memory and speed needed for high quality video editing. This will allow us to change and add additional effects to the videos that the iPad captured before we finally post to our site that parents can access.

Please help this project reach hundreds of future parents and families for years to come.
