I have 21 students that I would like to teach how to do visual presentations using PowerPoint and other Microsoft programs. To do this effectively, I need a digital camera and printer for them to gather visuals they need to put in their presentations. They will use these tools to work on class projects as well as creating their own projects. I hope to have them present at our school system's Technology Fair in the spring. I work in a Title I school which means that at least 80 percents of our students are on free and reduced lunch. This project will help them develop their computer skills and give them a high sense of accomplishment. For their first project, students will take pictures of their home and neighborhood using the digital camera. They will then load the pictures onto the computer to design their presentation using PowerPoint. They will have to add text to each slide describing their home and neighborhood. After creating this first project, students will then print their presentations to be included in a class book. This will go along with our Neighborhoods and Communities unit. Future projects will include "Things in Nature" and "What Makes My Family Special." Students will be able to come up with their own project ideas to work on using the digital camera. I have found that using technology in my classroom gets the kids excited about research projects and makes it easier for them to express their ideas.
