Hi, I'm the Technology Resource Teacher at Hoover School which is a low-income school where most of our students are English Language Learners. Our school is a K-8 school with two computer labs, one for K-3, and one for grades 4-8. Unfortunately, the majority of the computer money gets spent on the lab for the upper grades. The K-3 lab is made up of 25 iMacs (a few years old), and they all have the old "hockey-puck" iMac mouse. The kids LOVE being on the computers since most of them don't have computers at home. Needless to say, the mouse balls get very dirty very easily. The majority of them don't even work very well even when they're cleaned constantly, and the kids get disappointed when they're at a computer that they can't really use. I'd love to be able to switch out those old mice for some brand-new optical USB mice.
