Say Cheese!

My students need a laptop, hand held camcorder, and accessories.

My Students

A picture is worth a thousand words." My students will be able to convey thousands of words while capturing learning through the use of this digital video camera & laptop.

My class is a diverse group of energetic third graders that enjoy learning through many different styles of my teaching.

We often work in centers to reinforce skills that week, where I like to incorporate technology to engage my students. Students enjoy being "peer teachers" to explain difficult math concepts. They also love science experiments since they learn best by "doing."

My Project

My students are ready to take their camera skills to the next level through the use of this digital video camera & laptop. Since our world is fast approaching an all digital society, it is important for my students to learn these skills now. Students will video each other as "peer teachers" explaining difficult math concepts. They could also video science experiments. They will then upload them to the laptop to share with other students & family at home. Parents enjoy seeing the work completed by their child in this digital form. At the end of the year, students will learn how to compile all videos taken to showcase their talents and successes in third grade!

The fulfillment of this grant will help my students become adjusted to the "Digital Age" that is fast approaching.

I hope that my students will become more engaged in class activities with the use of this new technology in my class. I can't wait to hear,"Say Cheese!"
