My First Laptop...

The cost of a laptop computer from CDW Inc. is $1276, 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>.

Remember your first laptop? Learning how to use a touchpad? Creating your first PowerPoint presentation? Help my 2nd grade students enjoy technology and creativity with a laptop in our classroom. They are ready and willing to enter the world of technology! I am a teacher who loves having computer access available to my students. Whether it's learning a new game on the Everyday Math program, reading on Starfall.com, or creating a slide show about wild weather, my kids can use a laptop in so many ways. Right now we have one computer available for the students--and they would love to have access to one more! The kids each get a turn at the computer once a week, which is never enough. With a laptop, I could give each student another period a week of computer time. They are fast learners who would strongly benefit from using a computer that is reliable and portable throughout the classroom. My students come from working-class families in Washington Heights. For almost all of my kids, this year has been their first exposure to using computers. We might take for granted the computers in our own homes, but the time my students spend on the classroom computer is invaluable to them! I know that having a laptop in our classroom would be beneficial in so many ways---technology is crucial for them in the coming years. Help me give them this opportunity for creative learning and growth! Thank you so much for your consideration!
