Memory Makers

My students need digital cameras to help them complete our high school yearbook, maintain our school website, and complete projects in Computer Graphics.

My Students

Help us divide and conquer! We currently have two cameras serving 29 students (each period) who are working on a school yearbook, maintaining our school website, and working on other dynamic digital classroom projects. More cameras are needed!

My students are a diverse group of 9th through 12th graders who are enthusiastic learners and enjoy authentic learning opportunities.

They come from traditional, broken, and blended homes; some are middle class while many are from very financially challenged homes; they represent many different interests, hobbies, and personality types. We are a public high school serving a county in Kentucky. They love learning opportunities that extend outside the classroom, so serving our school for the yearbook, website, and other communication needs keeps them engaged and excited about learning.

My Project

With additional cameras, I can provide better instruction, and students will have more opportunity for practice as we learn about photography skills. More importantly, the application of those skills will improve and expand. My students can cover more school events for the yearbook and website, especially when several events occur simultaneously. Students can expand their learning through other innovative projects. In addition to telling our school story through the yearbook and website, I would like for my students to be able to expand their skills by producing picture story books for our elementary school, community picture books documenting our community heroes that are serving our country, and other like projects that may come up in the future. We are only limited by resources. Whether it is learning about photography, photo editing, telling stories through pictures, or taking on a community service project, cameras will empower my students with more authentic learning experiences!

In a technology classroom, students need adequate resources for authentic learning.

When resources are available, students thrive! I especially note that technology tools help special needs students find a niche in learning, and I rarely find a distinction between different-ability-level students' performance in my classroom when my students are engaged with appropriate tools. I believe two cameras will have a huge impact in my classroom for student engagement and learning.
