Mrs. Endsley from Grand Haven MI is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Lights, Camera...ACTION!

My students need 2 digital video recorders to record videos of Reader's Theater performances as well as create multi-media projects to create learners for the 21st century.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

You may think, "A first grader with a flip camera?" You bet! Not only would we use these to record reading performances, we would also use these to create multi-media projects from field trips, recess and classroom activities. These activities are highly motivational!

The students in my classroom live in a Michigan community and attend a public school.

Forty percent the nearly 400 students in our school qualify for free/reduced lunch. The students are highly motivated by any technology in which they have access.

My Project

Literacy is changing in the 21st century. Our students need to be able to use technologies as well as create multi-media projects as they move through their school career and into their future jobs. With the digital video recorders, the students will be able to record videos of reading performances, field trips, presentations and other events that happen in the classroom. The photo feature will allow students to take snapshots of recess activities, field trips and other events that capture their interest. The plan is to have the students upload these images and videos to a class photo sharing site. These pictures can be used for writing motivation as well as technology projects including video creations.

Digital video and photo capabilities empowers the learners of the 21st century and gives them the tools to succeed by allowing them to create multi-media projects.

Thank you for your consideration!
