Jameis Winston Opens First State-Of-The Art Technology "Dream Room" at Alexander Elementary School

Students at Alexander Elementary School in Tampa started Tuesday off on an exciting note as Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston participated in a school-wide high-five line to begin the special day for Jameis and his Dream Forever Foundation. Jameis was at Alexander Elementary School for a special reason and that was to launch his first “Dream Room.”  

Jameis Winston’s Dream Room, a community outreach program of Jameis Winston’s Dream Forever Foundation, transformed a classroom at Alexander Elementary School into a new state-of-the art technology center to expand personal learning opportunities and provide career exploration for its students. Designed with Tampa Bay Buccaneers colors and branded with images of Jameis playing football on the wall, the Dream Room is also filled with iPads loaded with educational applications, tower computer stations, furniture, LEGO robots, a 3D printer, a projector and a TV with Apple TV.  

The Dream Room is a space designed for students to dream, learn and grow as the use of technology in the classroom has many positive benefits such as motivating students to learn, preparing students for the digital future and increasing collaboration between students.  

After Jameis and students from Alexander Elementary School officially unveiled the Dream Room with a red ribbon cutting, Jameis spoke to students about the significance of the Dream Room and why it is important for him to bring this Dream Room filled with technology to Alexander Elementary. For Jameis, just as it takes collaboration, team building skills and communication to have success on the football field, the use of advanced technology that the Dream Room provides will also help these students to develop those important life skills.  

“Growing up I felt like I lacked certain opportunities that other kids were afforded so I wanted to give these children the same opportunities every child should be given regardless of their economic status. I want to level the playing field for them so they can succeed,” said Winston.  

While other schools in the School District of Hillsborough County have access to technology, Alexander Elementary School did not have access to technology prior to Jameis Winston’s Dream Room being launched in the school.  

Many students at Alexander Elementary School, especially those students from Puerto Rico who came to Alexander Elementary School after the devastation of Hurricane Maria, do not have access to a computer, tablet or mobile device at home to complete their homework. Thanks to Jameis’ Dream Room, the room will be open before school, during school hours and after school for students to use the advanced technology to help complete their homework and to expand their learning.  

From now on when students at Alexander Elementary School enter Jameis Winston’s Dream Room, the students will remember the importance of how Jameis and the Dream Room are providing opportunities and resources to achieve their dreams both in the classroom and in life.
