My students could really use their own digital cameras in the classroom.
I am fourth grade teacher in Virginia. I work in a Title I school and in a very high need area.
Have you ever had a wonderful experience, class trip, or class project and wish you had your own classroom camera to capture that memorable moment? Well, I sure have. Our library does have a couple of cameras, but sometimes they are not available when I would like to use them. My students are very tech savvy and would be able to create short plays and creative projects that they would be able to record at the moment of their creation.
I think at this time of the school year it would be great if they could complete their end of the year projects by directing and recording their own digital stories projects if they had their own cameras to work with. I think if we want children to be 21st century learners we need to give them the tools to be creative and learn new ways to telling stories and using technology that is available to them.
I think if we had digital cameras in the classroom it would help each student to learn the basics of taking pictures, recording video, downloading pictures and editing video projects. We would definitely have more creative projects and the cameras would really get the students excited about creating school projects using the digital technology to do it with. I know with your help my students and I would take advantage of having digital cameras at our disposal to record our specials events in the classroom throughout the rest of the school year. You can help us to make our classroom a 21st century classroom with digital cameras that students can use. Now, who doesn't have a camera to snap a shot of their favorite things or friends? Don't you enjoy looking back on memories of things you have done? I hope you feel our need and think about how great it would be for us to record our school memories.
