My students are lucky enough to have a 1:1 ratio with Chromebooks. We've been experimenting more and more with our technology, creating things like Flipgrids for reading and speech practice, using Seesaw for math, and reading on Epic. The problem is that some of my students do not have headphones. This causes an issue when they would like to read a book on Epic, or make a quality Flipgrid video. Please help all of my students enjoy their own headphones so we can continue to create masterpieces though headphones! With these headphones, my students will be able to make quality, clear videos to practice language development and opinion writing, as well as replying to students by disagreeing and agreeing. They will also be able to read independently. About these platforms: Flipgrid is a website where students can make a quick video on a given topic. Some that we have done is writing an opinion essay about having a penguin as a pet, and making a video of us reading our ideas. Epic! is an app that students can read thousands of books, audio books and even watch some educational videos. Teachers can also make collections of certain topics for students to read. Recently, I've made a collection for penguins to enhance our research unit of arctic animals. Seesaw is used for many different things. Most recently, I gave my students a multiplication problem and asked them to make a drawing representing equal groups, and record their voice as they taught me the problem, to check for understanding as we near the end of the unit.
