Introduction

Once we were allocated into a group we deliberated in finding a campaign which was thought provoking and would make a positive change to the school. We chose to make a big impact on the school because we thought it would be most beneficial to us. Most people in our group felt strongly about the idea of upgrading the school computers to windows 7, so we decided to campaign on this issue. We scanned the internet long and hard until we found competitive prices the school could cope with and fund (Microsoft website and other retailers for the product). We had debated about other campaigns like 'changing the school uniform' (coming under the same theme as 'promoting greater student engagement in school or college') however we thought it would be a major blunder for us because people would oppose it as it would involve parents having to pay out large sums of money. The government would not offer grants for the children's parents however 'some local authorities provide discretionary grants to help with buying school uniforms', never the less we thought that it would still be an exorbitant price for the parents to pay (as the grants would not be paid out to everyone) ...read more.

The other 30% told us that pricing would probably be a issue. We later asked the students and teachers if they were for the idea if pricing wasn't an issue, and they all replied saying they'd definitely want it. So it is apparent that the operating system is wanted at <School name> pricing is an issue. We have started an online petition (www.windows4clayton.tk) because we believe to capture the attention of young audiences we must be in front with technology. We went to see the technicians and they are aware of the release of the new operating system. They aren't aware of the specific price so we researched for them. Our campaign is to upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7. We plan to launch questionnaires, online petitions and have meetings with governors. We chose questionnaires because we can back up what we think with evidence when confronting the governors etc. Online petitions were chosen because we believe that it will make it more exciting when signing up to a petition when on a computer as the younger generations are more experienced with using computers. ...read more.

Conclusion

If they do attend a job and they don't know how to use the soon to be popular operating system they will be left an embarrassment and could even lose their job because they don't know how to use it. Our rough outline will be to gain popularity by various forms of media like questionnaires, petitions, posters and assembly's. This is to get our campaign well known so that people will start campaigning for us. We think it is morally unfair that students can't be given better chances in my life. The school could be able to fund such things with a bit of fund raising and help from the community. Another way of raising awareness of our campaign would be to get a poster pasted of all of the school wallpapers (on the school computers) to boost knowledge of our campaign. The order we shall do this is to firstly boost awareness, then to start getting petitions, lastly meeting up with school governors to discuss plans. If successful we shall contact newspapers boasting what we have achieved. This will prove to people you can achieve whatever you want with some effort. ?? ?? ?? ??
