Mrs. Stafford from Tampa FL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Don't Be Mean Behind The Screen

My students need a video camcorder and tripod to create a student-made video about the impact of bullying that will be shown to the entire student body.

My Students

Were you ever that person that was picked on by a bully in school? If yes, you know how it feels. Bullying is a major issue in schools today and my students want to make a difference in their school by stopping it. The video camera will make it easier to produce and publish our production.

Do you know how many students graduate from high school and are not ready for what awaits them beyond graduation?

My Academy of International Business students want to utilize the technology of today to prepare for the future. These students attend a high school located in a large urban area in Florida. The school's population is over 50% Hispanic and the majority of the students are in the free and reduced lunch program. Our school has the most diverse population in the district and that in itself can be difficult at times.

My Project

With this technology, my students will create a video about the impact of bullying. They will show students how it impacts the victim, why bullying is wrong, and what the victim can do to stop it. Along with the bullying issue, the students will include issues on diversity and cultural differences. The students want to make their school a more enjoyable place as they accomplish their quest to stop bullying.

With the help of Townsend Press, ABC Family, and others from our DonorsChoose family, my students will utilize this technology to learn about using multimedia to promote the worthwhile cause of stopping bullying.
