Say Cheese!

My students need a Nikon digital camera and lenses to capture memories for our virtual yearbook.

My Students

I am one of the fortunate teachers of my school's Yearbook and Web Design Club. The students currently participating in our club are a mix of fourth and fifth graders.

My students are creative and so very excited about taking the lead on this brand new project.

Many of the students in this club do not have access to computers and cameras. This club provides them with a time to learn about technology as well as a time to implement the strategies they are learning in a real world setting. Students will be able to receive instant gratification for their hard work. Their work will be on display for both the school and whole community to see.

My Project

In the past, the school yearbook has typically been a teacher or parent project. Last year we decided to get the students involved, and it was our best yearbook yet! This year, students are taking our yearbook to the next level. Their ambition is to create a virtual yearbook, which can be viewed year after year to create everlasting memories.

This digital camera will provide students with the opportunity to take more control of what content is part of our yearbook and virtual yearbook.

Students will also have the opportunity to learn the necessary skills needed to operate a digital camera.
