The Power to Create and Edit

My students need a MacBook Pro to be able to complete difficult task in their Visual/Audio Technology class.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I would really like to give my students much more than what they have since they have so little. They come from homes that are below poverty line. They also deserve a chance like everyone else.

Broken home, homeless shelters, and even projects; these are no places for students to live.

Our schools population is mainly immigrants students, but this shouldn't be the reason why they can't be exposed to everything just like everyone else for a better chance at their future endeavors. Many don't even have access to computers and even less access to outside internet.

My Project

Students are very creative and with their new Audio and Visual Technology class we would like to see their ideas come alive. This project will serve as the main tool of editing.

"The process of editing is what I enjoy most - putting the pieces together and making sense out of them."

The MacBook Pro is a very sophisticated and important equipment for everyone to have. This project will help students put all the pieces together, finalizing their ideas for everyone to enjoy. They are looking forward to display their work with pride. iMovie is one of many free software that are available for the MacBook Pro to help students edit and customize any project they are working on.
