My students need mice and rechargeable batteries! I have a computer cart in my class, but some students could use the help of a mouse instead of the touch pad to complete assignments!
My students come into my class with a smile, and usually ask, "Are we doing a lab today?" They enjoy the challenge and discovery that science has to offer. At my school, they have diverse backgrounds, cultures, socioeconomic statuses, and learning abilities. However, despite these differences, they have so much more in common with each other. My students are energetic, curious, willing to try, and ready to learn. They are engaged in science because our science department tries to put science in their hands as much as possible....with labs and projects that will make an impact on their learning. They enjoy learning by doing when the focus is on them discovering through inquiry.
We often use computers in my classroom for research, web quests, projects, collaborative assignments, etc. Sometimes websites can be better navigated through with the use of computer mice. The touchpad can be difficult to use in some instances.
I also have some students that have a much easier time using mice rather than the touchpad.
I'd eventually like to have a class set of mice one day, but we will be thrilled to start with a few of them first! The rechargeable batteries will keep the mice all alive at once, which makes for a much smoother classroom experience.
