Technology Integration For Student Success

My students need an LCD projector to view teacher-created power point presentations, participate in virtual laboratory activities and explore different websites.

My Students

These days it is rare to see a teenager not attached to their iPhone, tablet or mp3 player. Teenagers are constantly attached to the virtual world until they get to my class. With virtually no technology available, students are learning with a 1980s-style overhead projector.

Our school is a vocational magnet high school with 8 different academies.

Our academies include Automotive and Small Appliance Repair, Technology Services such as Cosmetology, Early Childcare and Culinary Arts, Design Arts such as computer design and television production, Health Science with nursing and veterinary strands, Performing Arts, Engineering and Hospitality. Students choose an academy before starting their freshman year and can graduate with a certification in their field. Student demographics are mostly black and Hispanic with a small white and Asian population. Students come from homes with middle to low socioeconomic status. Each student comes with his/her own back story and most I have encountered have overcome a variety of difficulties and issues.

My Project

My students need an LCD projector. With an LCD projector, students will receive instruction via PowerPoint presentations with live links to a variety of websites and animations. Students will be inspired to use the Internet for research of topics instead of just for browsing "fun" sites. Students will also be shown "fun" sites that tie together the topics discussed in class. Using the variety of Internet resources, students will be able to develop a deeper understanding of difficult chemistry topics. They will also be exposed to virtual laboratory activities and demonstrations that are not feasible in our high school classroom.

The virtual world and technology are such an integral part of teenagers' lives these days.

It is important to try to connect with students as best as possible and this project will allow me to bridge the technological gap that exists in my classroom. By using an LCD projector, I can show these students a plethora of fun and cool resources available and, hopefully, inspire an interest in chemistry.
