My students need a classroom printer for printing and showcasing student work!
There are roughly 400 students in attendance in our magnet school in the inner city school district of New Haven, CT. Our students come to school ready and eager to learn. Our magnet theme allows students to explore STEM professions through stimulating and challenging programs. The technology lab is a safe place which fosters creativity, communication, and collaboration.
Our students love technology and often times, the technology lab is a place where those students who may struggle academically, excel and participate in hands-on activities.
In addition, it is also a place where gifted students can be challenged to continue to think outside of the box to develop critical thinking skills that will help them to prepare for 21st century life and careers.
My students absolutely love coming to technology class . It gives them the opportunity to participate in hands-on learning experiences that are tailored to their individual learning needs. Each student comes to class with different skills and abilities. This allows for a wide range of differentiation when it comes to lessons and projects in the technology lab . Multiple students can be working on the same project but at different skill levels. Having a printer in the classroom would allow for me to print out differentiated instructions so that students can be working independently if they are ahead of where the rest of the class is. This would also be extremely beneficial to struggling students who have difficulty following multi-step directions independently.
My students truly enjoy showcasing their work and they are proud of the projects that they complete in technology.
Often, they would ask if I could print their projects out so that they could bring them home to show their parents what they have accomplished . While the ultimate goal is to be completely digital, many students do not have access to a computer or the internet at home and should still be able to show off the projects that they put so much heart into. Having the printer in the classroom would make it much easier for me to make this happen for them. This printer would provide so many opportunities for my students and would be an extremely beneficial addition to our classroom.
