Teacher Led Computer Recycling: The "Teacher on Special Assignment" Model

"Discarded computers are our most wasted educational resource".


I created a computer lab, for no money, at my school with the most up to date software.
I used recycled computers run on user friendly, open source software
. I did this all by being released from teaching for four hours a week, only.

What I did can reproduced at any underfunded school. If your school desires to have computer labs and technology based teaching for no money, read my article below, adopt this model.



I call my model of acquiring and using free computers realistically and successfully at underfunded public schools, the "Teacher on Special Assignment" model.
