Graphics Tablets to Create Creative Kids
My students need 6 graphics tablets to draw on the computer when designing new creations in technology class.
Did you every have a time in school where your creativity was sparked? I mean really sparked? Me too! I want to give my technology students the experience of being able to draw easily on our class computers, so that they can create richer class projects than they can with a mouse.
My students are 6th graders at a public charter school in Texas that gets 100% of our students into a 4-year university.
Our students come from low-income and low-english families, and they are often the first in the family to attend college. They are very hardworking and respectful. They have a positive attitude, they're highly creative, and very funny.
6 Wacom Bamboo Splash graphics tablets will enable my classes of 28 students to take great ideas, either inventive or artistic, and bring them to life in the computer graphics program that I teach. They will allow students to express their ideas beautifully in a visual form on the computer and leave behind the frustrating experience of drawing with a mouse. In this way, new ideas and beautiful illustrations can be integrated into the project experiences that my students enjoy, such as creating an alien world and designing their own brand to represent their personality.
My project is going to enrich the lives of students who are naturally creative and enhance the creativity of those who aren't.
Perhaps a budding artist will emerge from our classroom. My project will also create greater engagement with designing for those who might become inventors, engineers, or other idea people some day. Like making a quick sketch on the back of a napkin, computer graphics are used in my room as a richer way to imagine your end product and share it with others.
