Tech Essentials

My students need headphones and a webcam to enable our blended classroom design and to allow us to bring guest speakers in via skype.

My Students

This year, my students have the chance to get on the computer for engaging learning experiences. We are fortunate to already have some great technology in our classroom, but need a few more items to get us underway.

My students are 11th graders and are starting to plan for their future; most of them are planning to go to college.

Our school is engaging in a turnaround, so our current 11th graders will be the first students to graduate from the new school. They are eager and excited to start the new school year, and are especially excited about using computers regularly in class.

My Project

I am requesting headphones that will allow students to watch videos that make history come alive, and a webcam to allow us to engage with classrooms from around the world via Skype. My students in International Baccalaureate classes will be able to engage with students from around the world.

These resources will enrich my students' learning experience by providing the essential technology that will make their classroom experience come alive.

These are a few final pieces to the puzzle that will round out our technology
