Digital Cameras for Photoshop

My students need six digital cameras for their Photoshop class. Currently, I have a digital camera to share between two different classes with more than 30 students in each.

My Students

It is difficult to have a Photoshop class without cameras the students can use and share. Learning how to use digital cameras is also important.

Our public charter school is an eclectic mix of middle and high school students working hard to overcome obstacles and achieve success regardless of their personal situations.

78% of our students qualify for free or reduced meals. We have a 0% drop-out rate and a 100% college acceptance rate. Our dedicated staff takes personal interest in helping our students succeed not only academically but socially and emotionally as well. It is our goal to produce well-balanced, productive young adults that have the tools they need to be responsible, contributing members of society. Our students come from all ethnic backgrounds and face serious economic hardship. Most students do not have a computer at home and some joining my classroom have never seen a computer before. These brilliant students are like sponges and are eager to learn new technologies and how to do just about anything.

My Project

I am requesting six digital cameras for Photoshop class and all of my computer classes. Students will be able to use these cameras responsibly and take various photos around the school and after hours. This helps with newspaper photos and inspires students to be more creative with their work. We have only one camera and today, each student will be lucky if they get at least one chance to use the digital camera to take photos. Plus, students need to use their own photos for their Photoshop projects in class. This is an economically challenged school and the majority of students have not used electronic devices taking photos with things like iPods and such. These students haven't worked with photos, nor do they have any idea how to use a digital camera.

Giving these students the opportunity to use the technology and learn how to edit photos is very important.

Most kids their age in other schools know how to do these things because they have devices at home. My students cannot financially afford to have devices with cameras and do not have computers at home.
