Newslab Computer Upgrades
The main problem we are trying to overcome is how outdated our computers in this lab space have become. We want to keep our lab functioning efficiently without technical problems. The lack of newer stable computers can severely hinder students' process of learning and keep them from being able to have a space where they can rely on functional computers. The computers in our labs were funded by Student Technology Fee over seven years ago. However, they are now they are too slow to reasonably run Adobe software, which is frequently used in professional settings and funded by the Department for this space. We don’t want slow unreliable computers to become a hindrance to our students learning essential skills for their careers. Given the history of our tech resources getting funds from the STF, we believe that we could utilize STF funds again to provide our students with a better-equipped learning environment with updated tech resources. Better computers lead to better results for projects, assignments, and opportunities for students to become proficient with the necessary tools. This lab is used as a place where our Department staff hold workshops and help our students one on one to help them with their projects.
