As a visual arts educator at a Title I school, it’s my platform to expose our students to the different types of media to express their creativity. The students at our school are amazing! They are unified from all walks of life but share the passion to learn together. Our students enjoy being able to express themselves creatively in innovative ways beyond their different circumstances. The students at this school go through enough obstacles. Help me help them learn how to integrate the advancement of technology as a tool to influence their creativity.
The goal is to have a classroom technology center with eight Chromebooks to explore media art with my students this school year. I teach anywhere from 525-600 students a year in kindergarten through fifth grade. I am all about maximizing my time and having Chromebooks in the classroom will allow me to do that and more. Including this center in my art classroom will help me keep updated data and documentation on my students while they can gain hands-on support on how to utilize technology to integrate with their art education.
The Chromebooks will be incorporated appropriately into instruction for digital art exploration of apps, art centers, projects, portfolios, and quick evaluation of student growth through electronic quizzes/tests from their responses on their Chromebook.
By donating to our need for Chromebooks two laptops at time, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, but you will also ultimately help make them be successful in this 21st-century learning environment.
