We have added five more laptops to the student cart and an elmo and data projector! The 24 student laptops are ready to go. One laptop was used to set up the data projector and elmo. Just check them out from the library. Let me know if you need help and I'll be happy to help you set-up the afternoon before.
The student check-out laptops will begin with fifth grade soon. I have most ready to go and as soon as they are scanned into the check-out system, we will begin our "trial" of checking-out for fifth grade. The plan is to begin with one class. The laptops will go home and then be returned in one week, just like books. There will be a turn-around time before they can be checked out again as they will need to be "checked" before sending home again. If this works well, then we will add fourth grade. I don't imagine we will get to third grade this year. This is a 3-5 project.
