Interactive Multimedia Learning

My students need television for the classroom in order to integrate a full interactive, multimedia, learning environment.

My Students

John Dewey said, "If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow." My students are thirsty for interactive learning through multimedia technology. However, my classroom currently has an outdated, analog television that doesn't support a multimedia learning environment.

My students are fourth grade students in a diverse, "GATE" clustered class.

These students live in a middle class socioeconomic community. There is diverse ethnicity within my classroom. My students' ethnicity ranges from Hispanic, Greek, Indian, African American, Filipino, Japanese, Chinese, and a few other groups too. The students have a thirst for learning through multimedia technology. They have it at home and crave or expect it at school. Our school is a community/neighborhood school and is made up of general education, GATE clustered program, and an on-site special education program. We currently scored 932 on CST Testing (California State Testing). The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is strong and participates at all levels at our school. Our classroom sizes seem to be getting larger every year. Currently, I have 33 students and an additional 5 rotating students.

My Project

Currently, my students use various technology like SMART Board technology, Discovery's United Streaming, PowerPoint,and Windows Movie Maker. Adding a new television will complete our interactive multimedia learning environment. By utilizing this new television, my students will enjoy becoming lifelong learners with technology. This television will allow my students to multitask or work on interactive learning assignments in two different locations, one group located at the SMART Board and another learning group by the television. In addition, students will be able to display their California City presentations and other future presentations simultaneously on the projector and television for every student to see. Lastly, as class size seems to be growing every year, this television will enable all students to see what is being taught by the teacher at the front of the room.

Our public school receives very little special funding, so we rely on grants and parental donations to procure technology for the classroom.

My television is outdated and analog, so it does not interface with other newer interactive technologies that we have implemented in the classroom. Unfortunately, our PTA is using donations for other school wide purposes, which makes it difficult to obtain this type of technology. Students will become motivated lifelong learners using this technology.
