Eager Engineers Using Colorful Technology
My students need an HP All-in-One Officejet printer to print class projects in color for their portfolios and for hallway displays.
Opening up a new school is exciting, yet challenging at the same time. Currently we do not have a color printer in the building and need one to print pictures for hallway displays, portfolios, and documents in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint just to name a few.
As a choice school, we serve a diverse population of students from across the district.
As the only school in our state with an engineering curriculum at the elementary level, the students at our school have unique learning experiences and opportunities. Along with engineering, technology is an integral part of the curriculum, which is used to complete engineering units and class projects. Students love coming to school to create, design, and engineer using the technology around them. Since technology is ever-changing, it is necessary to stay current and abreast the latest trends and practices. Providing my students with the latest advances in technology not only supports the mission of our school, but is preparing them for the technological world that we live in.
According to Grace Fleming, learning styles researcher, when visual learners use a visual aid when studying, like a colorful outline of test materials, he or she may retain more information. For this type of learner, visual tools improve the ability to recall information more completely. The HP printer will allow me to print materials in color for my students who need the visual stimulation. After students create projects in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, or Photostory, color copies can be made for students to display for others to see. Often these documents are left on the computer for small viewing audiences only. With the HP printers, students can share technology projects with others.
The HP printer will aid me in reaching my visual learners.
Handouts, pictures, photographs and other support documents will be printed in color to support student learning. Classroom displays and hallway bulletin boards will also be printed in color for visitors, parents and other teachers in the building to see the learning that is taking place in our class.
