Mr. Kyle Smith from Kansas City MO is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Get Louder in Here!

Help me give my students a JBL speaker that will help create a visually interesting display and better sound while watching instructional videos. We are always looking for ways to make our space more appealing to our scholars.

My Students

My students are starting their own digital marketing agency for the Kansas City area and need your help to be competitive. The students at our high school are from low-income areas that attend schools that have difficulty finding teachers and resources. Our school is a technical branch that busses students from their high school to ours in order to learn practical job skills.

My classes will specifically focus on digital marketing and video production for local businesses in the Kansas City area.

Our objective is to teach students the skills they need to work for an advertising agency or corporate digital marketing department. Another important objective of our class is to promote locally owned businesses and charities in our area. We will be managing the businesses and charities as our clients.

We will be creating email marketing campaigns, social media posts, and videos to capture the essence of being a locally owned business in Kansas City. Help us make our space bright, creative, inspiring, and technologically capable. The investment we make now will empower our students for years to come in the workforce or when they open their own business.

My Project

Our students watch instructional videos produced by Adobe for their certifications in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Premier, and After Effects. Our goal is to buy speakers like this one to help project sound from more places in the room. Currently we only have one speaker which can be difficult to hear when you are not right beside it.

My students depend on hearing the audio from the Adobe Video tutorials.

This speaker is also visually appealing and we've tested that it can be paired with other speakers made by JBL to give a stereo effect. Ideally we would have four speakers in the four corners of our room so everyone had optimal audio. I am starting with one because we are desperate to have something sooner rather than later.
