Renee Bentham's interesting introduction, in which she describes what technology her program in Missoula Montana is using, and a recent question from a colleague in Massachusetts who is considering new hardware purchases for her program, prompt me to ask these questions:
If you had funds to purchase new desktops, laptops and/or tablets for your program, let's say $15,000, how would you spend it to get the best services for your students and value? Let's say that you already have some desktops and Internet access, at least in your computer lab.
