Mice are Nice!

My students need computer mice for our netbooks. The kids get frustrated with the touchpads!

My Students

My students are hard-working young men and women. They are creative thinkers and desire the opportunity to be provided with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

They like to get up and move around the room, they love to read and enjoy engaging Math activities.

Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me.

My Project

Youngsters often have trouble manipulating the touchpads on laptops. Computer mice(mouse?) are easier for them to control and less frustrating. Touchpads often require multiple touches of fingertips to manipulate which often confuses the students, while mice are easily guided by their hands and buttons to click when ready.

My class would love to have some computer mice for our 15 netbooks.

We use our computers daily but the touchpads on the netbooks frustrate the students and mice would make for a smoother computer time. I currently have to used personal mice that the students "fight" to use. We need plenty for everyone so I have happy students. Plus a happier teacher!
