Lightning-Speed Laptop

My students need an Acer Aspire computer.

My Students

What's the use of having state-of-the-art technology at your fingertips when your computer takes twenty minutes to load? We need a new laptop computer to allow us to use the Internet for research, interactive games and Smartboard lessons.

We are a language arts classroom in a public elementary school.

I've lucky to have a class full of passionate, hard-working learners. My third graders have the motivation and drive to learn more...there's SO much out there to share with them. Our school is technologically-advanced, but our computers are outdated.

My Project

Imagine having the latest in classroom technology at your fingertips but the computer is so slow that your students lose interest. These amazing smart boards are light years ahead of the prehistoric computers that are housed in our classrooms. New technology is out of this world only when it is running properly! It's time to move forward with our ever changing technology and add laptops to our classrooms. The power that a laptop brings to a classroom is the same power that changes an ordinary white board into a Smart Board! Please help our classroom with Lightning Speed technology!

When you've got the love of learning and the resources to share, it's a shame that what's stopping us is a laptop to get us where we want to be...the 21st century!

Our classroom would benefit greatly from a new, faster laptop to use with our Elmo, Smartboard and educational websites.
