Requester Name: Wilma Maynard/ Sheryl Ballenger
Project Description: We are in need of at least three new computers for student use in the resource room. Ms. Boone evaluates a large number of students each month and uses these computers for that purpose. During the spring semester two of the computers crashed and the third computer is very old of course thus we are not sure how long it will be before that one also crashes.
Suggested Date for Implementation: Jul 15, 2010
From a student perspective: How would this project provide additional student access to technological resources?
Students come to our area to work on assignments and receive tutoring. Also WIA students take a test using our computers our area is full frequently with students waiting for a computer to become available.

How would this project broaden or enhance the quality of the student's academic experience through the proposed technology?
Students would have the availability of a computer without having to schedule time in the resource room. Also we would have enough computers to complete WIA testing in a timely manner.

How would this project integrate technology into coursework?
Students use the computers in our resource room to do research as well as complete and prepare assignments including research papers. Often our students are students with disabilities and need assistance with learning how to prepare a paper or an assignment.

From a faculty/staff perspective: Will other departments be involved with this project? If so, please describe.
