What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?

I would like to create a computer sciences program for the school I am a teacher at. By uniting my English classes with computer training, I would teach my students how to use simple computer programs in order to broaden their opportunities and prepare them for our technologically progressing global community.

How would a laptop help you?

At the moment, the students in my community have no way to learn how to use a computer. A laptop would serve as an essential aid to teaching computer sciences to my students. They would be able to practice typing and gain familiarity with Microsoft Word, Excel, and other computer programs.

What do you love about this project?

I love offering a hand to my students and helping them develop in new dynamic ways.

What Languages do you speak?

Pular, French, and English.

Given a choice, would you prefer a Mac or PC?
