I am a K-5 technology teacher at Marshall Elementary School, located in the Mission District of San Francisco. We are a Title I school of 12 classes and approximately 85% of our students participate in the free or reduced lunch program. As a technology enthusiast, my goal for the technology program at this school is to promote students' creativity using various means of technology. One objective we have in our technology plan is that students will demonstrate their ability to use technology tools to create, organize, research, and communicate. Students often begin the year asking me if they can play games on the computers and I would like to try to offer them something other than the idea that computers = games. So far this year, they have seen how much more they can do with technology: create spreadsheets and graphs, make classroom maps, put together Kid Pix slide shows about their families, create time-lines of their lives, and much more. They are now hooked into creating projects and now the question is, "Can we have this printed in color?" Unfortunately, our lab is equipped with one black and white Apple Laser Writer that most of the school prints on. We are lacking a color printer which would be able to showcase the energy and brilliance the students have put into their projects. Having a color printer in the lab would definitely motivate the students to increase their proficiency in technology through creative uses of tech tools. I am requesting a Lexmark C510n printer. Thank you for considering our proposal!
