My students need a laptop computer for a touch of technology in our room! The world has turned high tech, but our classroom is not keeping up!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am suppose to be preparing my students today for a job that is yet to exist. Technology is the only link I have to help them try to keep up. Many schools are submerged with laptops, smartboards and other items to keep their students on the cutting edge. I teach in a low income school though.
Currently, my classroom has one computer (the teacher station) which is hard for the students to work with.
Last year I received an ELMO projector, which is great. Unfortunately, it is hooked up to a fifteen year old computer from a storage room. My students are used to hand me downs, and not having the best. I would love to start off their 2011 year with access to a new computer.
They need a place to research, create blogs, and play active games! They deserve this. It is not a luxury, it is a necessity!
Please allow my students, who have no computers at home, to get in touch with their future jobs! Just because they reside in a low income household, they shouldn't have a low income education. Don't let the world pass by smart kids, who need a break.
It is a high tech world. We ARE a low tech classroom.
I'm glad to know, with no money in our district, and state.....others are stepping up.
