What is everyone doing? Our school has given us the following options:

They provide one computer for DS's use only, or

We provide a keyboard cover, or

They wipe the keyboard and mouse before he uses them.


We are thinking about using a cover. For those who use them, can you explain how they work and where I can find one fairly quickly? I've never seen one, believe it or not! [img][/img]

Our son uses the cover. It is kept in a special place and he just goes and gets it and puts in on before he starts class. I was worried that he might feel like he stands out by using a cover but in his class he says everybody wants one and they are jealous that he is the only one that gets one. I think they are very inexpensive - the school bought the one he uses. I haven't seen it, so can't help you out there. (We feel this is the safest and apparently doesn't seem to bother him.)

This is a timely thread! Thanks for raising this question....
My son started a once a week computer class in preschool this week. I am concerned about the keyboard too and have not decided how to handle this yet. I think I might just have them wipe the keyboard since this is within my comfort level, but not 100% sure.... [img][/img]

Thanks, Love My C and your DH!!
I decided to go the cover route because they are already wiping kids' hands, tables, etc... so I thought this could be one LESS thing for them to wipe. LOL! Good luck to you!

Thanks for the link! I've been looking for these things for 2 years now! I need the black ones that you can't see the keys with to help with teaching a high school keyboarding class to type. We are currently using a piece of typing paper taped to the keyboard over top of their hands and we all hate it! This will be wonderful! I'll have to show this to the principal.
Thanks again!
