Mrs. Tiffany-Diaz from Richmond CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Updating My Classroom Technology

My students need a projector, a speaker system, a camcorder, a voice recorder and 3 tablets to upgraded technology to make their learning really stand out!

My Students

If you were to look around my room, you would see a few computers that were old and outdated and a projector that is on it's last legs. My technology is so outdated, it's nearly useless! I believe that teaching students to use multiple technologies is as fundamental as teaching them to read.

My students are an amazing and diverse bunch of kids.

They come from a very economically depressed area and are racially diverse. They love coming to school every day! They really get excited when it's time to use the computers. Most of them do not have access to technology at home.

My Project

The technology resources I am requesting will allow me to teach my students some fundamental technology skills that they cannot learn with our current, outdated junk. I am hoping to tap into the deep well of imagination and creativity that will make their school assignments shine and make learning more effective and fun! I want to start a pad cast book review run by the students and teach them how to create amazing video reports. The new projector will allow me to show websites to the whole class and use PowerPoint and other programs to present information to my students. The tablet computer will allow my students to access all kinds of amazing learning apps.

Technological literacy is as important as reading or writing.

Students need to be able to use a variety of technologies to be successful in their lives. These technologies will help them to step fully into the cyber age.
