  Internet access using one computer in the classroom

 Classroom Setup

"I am a 7th & 8th grade general science teacher with 24 students in my class. My course is only one semester long but during this time I meet with my class every day for 2 hours. All teachers in my school are strongly encouraged to work on multidisciplinary projects whenever possible and to use other subject-area teachers to assist when necessary.

  • There is one Internet-capable computer in the classroom. It is in a large walk-in storage closet that has had the door removed and made into a "computer space."

  • Up to 4 students can squeeze into this space at one time.

  • Because of the location of the computer and the layout of the classroom, it is impossible to connect a projection device to the computer.
