I teach a self-contained multi-age class of twenty first (novices) and second (experts) graders. The students remain with me for two years, with the first graders moving up to be second graders and a new group of 1st graders enrolling. Woodlake is a family-oriented school which encourages students' individuality and teaches to a variety of learning styles to help reach all students. Woodlake is located in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana which serves a population which was minorly to severely affected by Hurricane Katrina. My kids are absolutely fascinated with anything on the computer. They are enthusiastic and motivated to complete any project that involves them having time to work on a computer. Unfortunately, schools do not always have the funds needed to have up-to-date equipment that allows students to gain the full experience with sounds and high-speed action. We would love to have a laptop computer that has all the "bells and whistles" that will allow students to gain knowledge and experience with using technology and be completely engaged in their work. One potential application would be for the students to create PowerPoint presentation that correspond to an upcoming unit on poetry. Students could utilize clip art, sounds, text formatting, and digital cameras to create a class presentation in which they showcase their skills. This type of technology would also mesh well with another material gained through Donors Choose, which was a Mini DVD camcorder. Students can record and edit experiences to make them unique. This type of equipment would not only have my students begging to do extra projects only to have a chance to work on the laptop, it would allow them to learn valuable skills while having fun and not even realizing they are learning.
