My Students

When faced with the challenge to make a dynamic presentation of their work, many students find themselves bewildered. Why? Because they have no at home access to computers or printers.

In the rural, low income school that my students attend, many of them struggle to have the technology that is sometimes needed to achieve success on certain assignments.

However, most of my students are college bound, and they want to create assignments which are awesome and dynamic!

My Project

My students need a printer and ink for student use in my classroom! In order to help them do this, we need a classroom printer! Students will use this to print various things they need for class which will include presentation materials, essays, and visual aids for many projects. They will, through this use, learn the effective use of technology and what color and presentation really lend to school work!

This will improve my classroom in various ways, but the most important will be that the students can use this printer to really take ownership of their classwork and use technology to produce something that really makes them proud.

This printer will change my student's output and open their eyes to just what they can do!
