Ms. Bindert from Astoria NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need digital hardware including 15 cameras, 15 memory cards, and 6 iPod Touches.
My students crave learning in all forms. A class of gifted and talented learners, they are always seeking new challenges both academically and creatively.
My students are eager to explore the world around them.
They are inquisitive and highly motivated learners who seek to engage in new challenges and creative outlets each day. This year I am lucky enough to be one of the founding teachers at a K-8 Gifted and Talented School. I co-teach our first sixth-grade middle school class. Our school focuses on providing students with an enriching education based on the core values of inquiry, inclusion, and responsibility. We provide our students with real-world challenges, incorporate teamwork into most lessons, and teach skill building to promote accountability in learning and behavior. My students thrive in this setting, a place where everyone is included and all share in the same love for learning and trying new things.
My students need digital hardware including cameras, memory cards, and iPod Touches. These resources will be used to teach digital and mobile photography to our middle schoolers. Students will learn and employ traditional photography techniques such as point of view, framing, lighting, and composition. Various sights from our city will inspire endless themes and sources for inspiration as students take their cameras on neighborhood walks, field trips, and throughout our school. Photography challenges in portraits, landscapes, abstracts, and more, will continue to push our students to improve their technique. Depending on the camera choice (digital or iPod), students will master various effects and filters through different lenses (digital) or applications (iPod). Students will then create online galleries to share their visions with peers and families, as well as create prints to brighten the halls of our new school and feature in school art exhibits.
Donations to this project will improve the enrichment component of my classroom.
With these materials, a whole new visual arts component will be added to our weekly art class. Students will be provided with opportunities to develop their talents and to pursue new creative outlets.
