Fluency, Listening and Publishing Center!

My students need a camcorder, with microphones and desktop speakers.

My Students

I know many students find writing boring. My goal is to introduce them to publishing their writing digitally and adding audio tracks.

My students are wonderful!

They come from all different backgrounds, including some who speak no English at all. We live in a community where they can still walk to school and parents feel safe about that choice. They are not wealthy students, we are a TITLE I school, with a high percentage of free/reduced lunch kids. They achieve very high, and I refuse to let them get out of this building without the skills they need to be successful. They are smart, kind, respectful...wonderful kids.

My Project

The camera and microphone are to be used to record their writings and add scenes. This will essentially turn their stories and writing pieces into videos, using Windows Movie Maker. This is going to ensure that students are using technology in a way that benefits them, and not just sitting at their desk writing. The speakers (I have 0) will be used to add audio tracks and allow them to share their creations. Also, the microphone and camera will add a second benefit to my ESL students, as I can use them to assist in language learning and fluency exercises.

This project is important because my kids deserve to at least be able to hear what the computers in my classroom are offering.

They have so much potential, and I will not deny them the opportunity to be successful because I cannot afford to buy them what they need out of my own pocket (or I would).
