To a kid in need, these computers would help indeed!

The cost of 10 Apple iBook computers is $12877, 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>.

My students fight an uphill battle almost every day. We deal with many setbacks in terms of funding but I know that we're not unique in that. :) Last summer, vandals broke into our school and trashed our most precious resources. Our computer lab was wiped out. The computers weren't great to being with, but at least the students were able to type essays and create projects. We've tried to get the computers working again but have been unsuccessful. Our students are so creative and bright! It's a shame to see such brilliant kids become frustrated when 300 students are fighting over the three computers in our middle school. Many are unable to hand in things on time and feel little pride in work that doesn't look professional. Our kids are going into high school with less practical experience with technology. Which is why... I would like to have an apple learning lab of personal computers for my students. I would love to have them journal and blog their thoughts, ideas, essays, articles, and stories. With this technology, students (especially my boys!) would see writing, reading, and learning, as purposeful, real-world stuff! While it's expensive, I can think of nothing better to invigorate our students and our school. Art was also cut last year and what an amazing experience it would be to start a graphic design club with this new resource.
