I am lucky to have access to laptops in my classroom! Sadly, I do not have a set of headphones to accompany these laptops. If my students had a pair of headphones they could use in conjunction with their laptops, this would be a game changer in the way we work as a class. I love pairing little videos and slide shows with my discussion questions, however, having 28 blaring laptops going off out-of-sync in the room is not an option. With these headphones I could pair our book work with different types of computer work to help engage students with different learning styles. Imagine learning about the Dust Bowl while reading "Out of the Dust" and then touring the History Channel's virtual history tour of the Dust Bowl to help you get in the mind set for our discussion. I want these students to see, hear, feel, and think in new ways and to stretch themselves further than ever before. I have so many resources to show them and to let them experience, it is just hard give them the independence they should have when I know we can't have the noise level it would cause. On a more functional, and less exciting level (though still very important), nearly half of my students receive accommodations for learning disabilities. I am the only teacher in the classroom the majority of the time, so it falls onto me to make sure that my students are accommodated, and that my other students receive help too. I have access to programs that could help me give accommodations and also be present to help other students, however they all require the use of headphones. Having a computer read tests aloud and differentiate would make a world of difference in how I divide my attention.
