I would suggest 2 computers to be the minimum. One for the teacher / projector/ pupils , one exclusively for pupils. I agree that interactive whiteboards are not appropriate expenditure for every classroom - you can do a lot with a projector and wireless keyboard / mouse passed around the room.
WiFi everywhere is a must.

David Muir

WiFi in outdoor spaces - good call! Not sure if this has been thought about in our school. I will make enquiries (and probably do some surreptitious testing).

On your bigger question, I suspect a document camera/visualiser doesn't fit your "minimum" criteria but I would argue that some sort of webcam on the computer should be included. Obviously, this could be used for the purpose intended to enable video conferencing etc. But, at a pinch, you could point a webcam at an object and use it as a poor man's visualiser too.
