I am writing this proposal to purchase Wacom Tablets to use in our graphic design computer lab. Our school is a small, growing Charter high school. Our High School is beginning its fifth year serving grades 9-12. Our school serves a low –income minority population. The school is committed to high expectations, social justice and college readiness. I teach the digital media classes, as well as a student newspaper elective class at our school. These classes provide the students the opportunity to learn about a variety of software, such as Photoshop, Dream weaver, Flash, and In Design. These are industry standard in any graphics department. I also incorporate critical thinking skills in the context of design and journalism. My background is in Fine Arts and I incorporate these elements and principles into the course on a regular basis. The students in my classes are continuously searching for new technology to experiment with in class. As our school and digital design program continue to grow and expand we continue to develop a computer lab offering many tools and resources. As a school we intend to build a strong, diverse computer lab to serve our students in the Graphic Design program, as well as the entire school population. The lab is also intended to be a resource for our parents and surrounding community. Being in a low- income community, the high quality resources we offer our school community are often the only option for the students to gain important skills to take into an increasingly digital work place. The Wacom Tablets would be a great addition to the lab, giving students another way to express their creativity with digital technology. Using these Wacom Tablets will provide another option for the students in Graphic Design to create projects such as Logo, Product, Architecture, Animation, and Web Based Design projects. Many students are very comfortable drawing on paper, but have a difficult time applying the same artistic skill to their digital art. These Wacom Tablets are perfect for bringing in these creative students. Your contribution to our school’s Computer Lab will make a huge different for our expanding community. With your generosity we intend to be a leader in using technology in education. One way is to put together the best quality technology resources for our students. You can make it happen with your donation!
