These Aren't the 'Droids You're Looking For . . .

My students need an Android Tablet and dock to sync up to their Google Accounts (Docs and Picasa) to further their tech experiences and education in the classroom.

My Students

Do you remember the first time you used a computer? I do. I was in high school. Ever since . . . :-) I have been teaching from a laptop and projector for the past few years. And I have been slowly implementing a classroom wide transition to "The Cloud". Imagine, a paperless classroom.

I work at a Title 1 designated school and in my eyes my students are Number 1.

Many are lacking home technology resources. They are a precocious bunch with inquisitive minds and a hunger for new experiences. They are eager to learn and are realizing how important technology is in our lives. Many have used game consoles and many have used computers in the classroom with guided reading programs. However, they have not been shown how computers and technology are now an integral part of our lives and can be a wonderful tool of creativity and expression: not just for productivity and consumption.

My Project

I want to let my students experience technology as they would a field trip to the Science Museum; a hands on immersive experience. They are excited about the books they are creating with the iPods center. Later they will be making their own PowerPoint educational lessons on the Native Americans of California in the computer lab. They are also learning how to use "The Cloud" to save and access their information. With the addition of an Android product in the classroom they will learn about diverse technology ecosystems. They will also be able to use Cloud services such as Google Docs.

Funding this project will help my students learn how to utilize technology in their learning and daily lives.

With a guided approach to technology education and the tools the complete it with, my students will become more engaged.
