Classroom for a Child With Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :

Erik does a lot of very detailed sketchings and appears to have a good comprehension of mathematics and reading, though he is not always able to share this comprehension with others. He has shown a great deal of progress working with computers, and in fact seems to understand them better than many normally functional adults that are trying to learn the technology, so it is especially important to incorporate computers into his education. In fact, I believe that all classrooms should have at least one computer reserved for that class alone. In the instance that for some reason the school computer lab is not available for Erik's use, I would acquire a computer for the classroom. Understanding that school funds are stretched thin, I would appeal to the community and to companies to contribute to our technology needs. An ideal computer for him to use would be a Macintosh, and such models as the clamshell iBook were designed for extreme durability and functionality combined, and the pretty colors are appealing and stimulating for all students. A laptop such as this can be obtained on eBay for as little as $150 in fully functional order, and while they run on an outdated operating system, it remains the perfect choice for students, including those with special education needs. This laptop could be used at any desk in the classroom, as well as taken to other places in the school, or even on field trips for students to continue their work. This computer would be able to go online via regular dial-up or ethernet, and could even be adapted for a wireless connection.
