My Students

So much of learning technology we need is on disks and it is frustrating to not be able to add programs to our net-books.

We are an eclectic group spanning the entire social-economic spectrum.

Our school is located downtown in the metro area of Orlando and we are a public charter school based on character education. Our digital natives are pretty much one-to-one and have access to a lot of technology; but we need these to help us go forward.

My Project

The external disk drives will enable us to load and save data to and from our net-books; the students will be able to benefit in that they won't be completely cloud dependent and will be able to work on saved projects if the Internet is not functioning properly.

Your contributions to this project will re-revolutionize the learning process at CFLA as it relates to using technology by adding a dimension not currently available to either students or staff.
