Goal

Our refined goal is to provide two quality, state-of-the-art laptop computers for the Yearbook class. Our editors/students who are faced with publication deadlines will greatly benefit from the ability to check out a laptop and work from home. 

 

What will be done with my students

The students will have access to the editing software from the Adobe Suite (Photoshop) and the access to the yearbook software from these laptops. The 15 inch displays will provide more accurate editing of photographs and better layout quality than smaller screened laptops. While in class, these two laptops will increase the number of functional computers for students to meet their production deadlines. With these faster processors and bigger hard drives, the overall production of the yearbook will be enhanced. 

 

Benefits to my students

The students in yearbook learn how to create a product, market a product, design ads and layouts, adhere to deadlines, manage fiscal responsibility, and deliver a completed product. By upgrading their access to portable computer systems, Yearbook students will now be able to support digital camera uploads, work uninterrupted with the on-line design software, and enhance the course with career ready skills. 

 

Describe the Students

Students in Yearbook are a diverse group and include all abilities in the performance spectrum. 

 

Budget Narrative

This adapted request was made possible by the technology manager at my site. He is in the process of upgrading the existing desktop computers and encouraged me to provide a new depth to the program by being able to offer laptops to check out for my students.
