I need your help - ASAP - I have an opportunity to discuss the following  
with our Technology Director for the District, so it may  impact other media 
centers besides mine - we are all of varying sizes &  have varied configurations 
regarding technology.
- elementary
- fixed schedules (I teach 26 classes of 3rd - 5th for 30/min/week =  ~780 
- at least 1/3 to 1/2 of curriculum should be teaching & collaborting  on 
- I have no access (they are booked up by classroom teachers) to the  
computer lab (some schools do/some don't)
- I have 4 desktop computers + 1 teaching computer to use & have  wrestled 4 
- 6 very old laptops for media
--> groups of 4 -5 students at a computer to apply  & practice what I model 
during media class
- infrequent access to some laptops where students often need to share  & 
take time to set up (I only have 20 - 22 minutes for a class)
Goal: there is a possibly of funneling some surplus computers to the media  
center(s) OR they may go to classroom teachers who already have a teaching  
computer in their room & 1 hour of computer lab time/week with each student  
having access to their own computer
I need to make convincing points on this issue - to bring more computers  
into the media center for purposes of student use in research - please direct  
comments/help to me off the list serve
Please respect my position and do not discuss your opinions of THIS  
situation on the listserv as I am proactive and need to move forward on this  issue 
not dwell on the negative AND I would like this to stay within this  community 
and not go beyond it's borders.
