Help! I Lost My Photo!

My students need cell phone tripods so they can improve the quality of their photos. They also need memory card readers in order to save their digital photos on their computers.

My Students

Most of my students are at-risk. This means they will probably need more support in order to be successful. More support may mean being sure they have breakfast and lunch. It could mean they need coats, mittens, scarves, boots, and hats to keep warm when their pipes freeze. It could mean they need personal hygiene products that are not provided at food banks in our community. These are kids who often work the evening shifts at fast food restaurants in order to supplement the family income. Sometimes these are the kids who parent themselves and protect other members of their families.

Offering a photography class allows these students to create images of their lives in their own authentic voice.

I believe our school provides a safe, predictable, trustworthy place, especially for students who face a lot of uncertainty in their lives outside school! Photography provides a way to document their world and validate their hopes and dreams of a better one.

My Project

My photography classes are growing and I am encountering new challenges along with this growth. Most of my students have cell phones, but many do not have data plans. This means they have little to no memory. We have figured out that they can store their photos on Google Docs by using their student accounts on our classroom ChromeBooks, but transferring the photos has presented a problem. I have asked for a set of cables which should work for all the different cell phones my students have.

The quality of my students' cell phone photos will improve greatly when they use a mini tripod.

It will take away the challenge of keeping their phones straight and steady. It will also encourage them to plan their shots better.

In addition, I have asked for SD card readers that have a USB connected to them. They will make saving photos so much easier.
