Interactive Learning Part II

The cost of this computer is $1166, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am a dedicated Speech Therapist who has been given the opportunity to work with 25 young Katrina evacuees to improve their language skills. Along with my current caseload, I am now responsible for 75 students, Pre-K to 5th grade. In working with all these students, I have found that they respond eagerly to more interactive types of lessons available via a computer. The lessons are lively and capture their attention, thus enabling them to stay focused on a lesson for a longer period of time. I would like to request one (1) laptop computer so that more of my students can progress each week with a greater chance to access a mode of learning that best suits them. Our school provides laptops on a checkout basis which I can only do for a short period of time each school day. This limits the opportunity for my students to learn. This new laptop will not only benefit my students from Louisiana, but also my students that I have worked with for several years.
