TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need two Akaso wifi cameras, Wheel of Fortune/Jeopardy video game, Sandisk Ultra Micro SD cards, a Sony PlayStation 4, and a wireless PS4 controller with charging cables.
My students are all African and Latino attending an empowerment high school in one of the poorest counties in NYC. Most of the students come from single parent homes where mom is the only parent. It's extremely important they learn about the world around them and the role technology can play in the process. They are good kids who will go much further once they realize the value of building their knowledge base and learning new skills. I've learned students are much more engaged when learning more is made more fun and interesting. This project will provide them with hands on experience is the use of digital technology, while educating them in the areas of math,science, history,geography,etc. The best part of all they will have a great deal of fun in the process.
This project will educate my students in various subject areas while teaching them basic digital recording and editing techniques. They will compete against one another in Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy on the PlayStation 4. They will then record and edit the footage on Akaso wifi cameras documenting the entire process. It's my hope they not only learn new facts, but develop a greater interest in photography digital technology, recording, and editing.
This is one project I know my students will love!
They will have a chance to test their knowledge against one another in a fun and exciting way. I've yet to come across a student who didn't like video games or using some form of technology in the classroom. This project allows them to do both while broadening their knowledge base and building their literacy skills. They will learn a whole lot of valuable information and have a great deal of fun while doing so.
