This is a simple project. While my students are always striving for success, some days they are taken away from the classroom - for numerous reasons such as sports, volunteering, field trips, doctor's appointments, etc. they fall behind. Once they return, they want the notes, materials, quizzes, or tests they missed from the time they were gone. Without the printer directly in class, it is generally a 24-48 hour turn around for me to get the materials to them, which leaves them further behind. In an effort to quell this, I would like to be able to print their materials directly from my classroom, which would give them plenty of time to work, and for me to ensure they understand the missed content, so that we are not playing catch-up with the lesson and instruction.
