This is our computer lab from the front. Believe it or not there are two students working--can you see them? We also have three carts with 16 laptops each.
This is our computer lab from the back--there is a ceiling mounted projector. See the fans? It gets hotter than blue blazes in there because the space was never mean to be a lab.
I am very lucky to have Netsupport where I can view all of the student screens from my computer--so no matter where I am in the room I can keep an eye on the kids and their screens. My desk is in the front of the room and I have a large carpet there as well. I The younger kids come down to the carpet for a lesson before going to their computers and the older kids have an option of coming to the carpet when we learn something new or staying at their computer. This way even those kids in the back of the room have a chance to see clearly.
