I have previously used a similar lesson plan for this chapter with the exception of the videos as we have no cameras.

Additional technology will support many different learning styles and promote interaction among students. The digital technology allows students to interact while those watching remain involved. It can play a key role in helping the students review and become more involved in the learning process. This will lead to higher levels of student attendance which is becoming an increasingly difficult challenge to manage. This technology, specifically the video cameras, will assist in getting students to remain task focused along with making learning more fun and interesting, it will help teachers find more creative ways to retain student attention. (See research by Reardon, 2002 and Tate, 2002.)
Interactive white boards and the incredible software available have added to the success in my classroom and have increased student engagement as well as promoted the technological skills students will need for success in the 21st century. A set of video cameras will surely add to our success. Being a title one school and having a large population of impoverished students we need all the help we can get. Thank you for your consideration.
