Project Director: Rebecca Hill, 580/310-7218,
Computer Literacy Instruction for Communities and Kids – “CLICK” for Ada’s program takes into account the needs of the community, offering quality technology and training at a safe, easy access location, and positioning computers in diverse locations around the city and within the county. It provides laptops for special needs students to take home when needed. It increases student access to computer assisted instruction (CAI), the network and the Internet by opening the CLICK center after school hours, and by making technology mobile – brings the lab to the student instead of the student to the lab. The program is expected to serve a possible student population of 280 per year. In addition, the free computers will allow six students access per night. Programs will also be available to adults and will include technology, basic literacy, workplace skills and GED instructions.
