I teach high school level Italian to students in grades 9-12. We're a high-needs school where technology isn't easily accessible at home.

I am facing a few obstacles here. The first is that many of my children do not have a computer at home, and if they do it's often broken and/or without Internet access. Secondly, there are many great websites related to the Italian language. I'd like to expose my students to these websites and the numerous lessons and learning experiences they can gain from them. Thirdly, my school does have laptops. However, they're often broken and/or unavailable. Due to scheduling, I cannot often gain access to one, which I'd like to connect to the overhead projector, for full class viewing.

Having a small laptop in class will help make learning instantly accessible and my lessons will be effective and useful.

If you contribute to my project you will play an important role in teaching my children important research and study skills. They'll gain a greater appreciation for the powerful availability of research materials which will help them become better college students. They need someone to guide them on how to make the most of what the Internet offers because in just 6 months to 1 1/2 years, many of my students will be attending college!
