Digital Camera for our new Classroom Website

My students need one digital camera.

I teach in a public school in a large city in upstate Western New York. I want my second graders to become familiar with the use of technology in their everyday lives. So many of my students do not have this opportunity at home.

Our district is beginning to provide the technology we need but we do not have enough supplies in our building to meet the needs of our students. Most of my students live at or below the poverty line. They do not have items like digital cameras and computers, with the proper software, at home to even see how it works.

I am requesting a digital camera for the classroom for a few different reasons this year. We are going to complete a Social Studies project that incorporates the use of different forms of technology in the classroom while answering the question "What is a community?" Students will take a walking field trip and photograph places and people in the community. We will then return and create a "Photo Story" of our community using the computer. Second, our district has just set up classroom web pages that we will be able to use this year. I would like the children to have the ability to photograph different happenings and post them to the web site. Students will be able to have hands on experience using this technology and will give them the same experiences so many "suburban" children already have.

You will make it possible for my students to meet the new State Technology Standards. They will have hands on learning experiences and experience everyday technology to allow them to learn the strategies they need later in their schooling.
