Multimedia World Experiences for Inner City Youth

Although I have a projector and computer, my students need access to speakers and a webcam to be able to listen to video clips, their own weather forecasts and podcasts, and news/weather clips from the web to make the topics we are studying come alive.

I teach Earth Science in a city school. My school is mostly high poverty, minority, and the school has a focus on business.

Students have never seen so many of the things we study, such as ocean tides, weather and climate in other parts of the world, landscapes in other areas, various rivers and streams, erosion, natural disasters. It does not make sense to them until we are able to bring some of these experiences to them.

By having Internet and sound in our classroom (we already have a computer with a projector), we will be able to better interact with other areas of the world, and to make these topics real. For example, students will be able to watch weather forecasts from different places, watch video clips and animations or newscasts from the internet, and even make their own weather forecasts and podcasts to record and possibly post online.

This is a chance for students in the city to experience the world outside of their neighborhood, and to see the relevance of Earth Science to their lives and other people's lives.
