Educational Technology is a Necessity in the Classroom.

Technology is very important in my classroom, even though I only have two traditional working computers, one of which a personal computer. I brought my own, because working on a glitchy XP machine simply gives me a bad day. We daily use student response devices, 5 cheap tablets (that I bought with personal money). I'm running double projectors so that my kids can see the board. One of them I requested as a graduation present way back in 2003, and still works just fine. I love my classroom, yes I spent my own money, but what teacher doesn't? Technology is a necessity in the classroom, and I can't prepare my kids for future jobs when they are working on machines from the 1990's. Many of the computers in my school are older than the children. Anyway, sorry for the rant. But I'm curious, what would your dream setup be?
