Our students are from a small town where football is life and everyone knows everyone. My class of EAST (Education Accelerated By Service And Technology) students work hard and are looking to help our community. In our class we use various modes of technology and software to solve problems and help others.
Students in our school must be disciplined, self-motivated, and hardworking.
My students definitely fit this description. They are constantly exploring new ideas and new projects. They want to see others do well and provide opportunities that may not otherwise be available. They learn skills that will help them in the real world while helping those that may not have the tools necessary to help themselves.
EAST (Education Accelerated by Service And Technology) is an innovative educational concept that was founded in Greenbrier, AR in 1996. Students look for problems in their school community and the community in which they live. They are then asked to use technology to attempt to solve those problems. Our program was started at our high school in 2007.
Our class equipment has been upgraded sparingly since our program's beginning.
The outdated technology makes completing projects difficult. The keyboard would allow those students that are interested in creating music to experiment with audio and adding music to video projects.
Lastly, the 3D printer will be used in projects that will require students to think outside the box.
These items will help students help their community and teach them valuable skills in the process. They will learn team building, math, problem solving, and how to interact with the general public.
