    • Service LearningThe service learning program we are involved in is called America Clicks. This is a one on one computer tutoring program designed to create an interest of computers in elementary school students. Bentley students utilize what theyve learned in class and use their knowledge to teach their students computer programs such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and use of the Internet.

    • Controversy • The computers were very slow. My student got very distracted and fidgety. Lessons were long because students lost interest. During the last session, we were finally allowed to use new computers in the library. They still ran slow, but would have been better if we used them in the beginning.• On the other hand, not all schools had the same resources. Northeast, for example, had newer computers that were accessible during all of our sessions. Everything ran at decent speeds, and all of the necessary software programs were installed.• If the schools would let Bentley students go in and fix the computer labs, there would be fewer issues with the computers themselves.
    • Suggested Changes • MEE at B T proje S ct befo LC at le manag re th ast o ers e fir n st se ce ssio e n • choose si tes that h ose th working ave s to cho compute llow u go rs• a tim es we • change the Excel aspect • consistent updates and • commun i ca grading on BB project m tion with anagers

    • Outcome of Our Service Learning Experience• better acquainted with Waltham community as Bentley students• better acquainted with each other through an embedded class• heightened awareness of what we can do to help our local • established a community personal connection• desire to continue with with the students we worked with service learning
