A Listening Center for the 21st Century
My students need an updated listening center that can keep up with the ever changing technology available.
Do you remember cassette tapes? They were great when they in the late 70's to early 90's, but not so great in a first grade classroom today. My students love listening to books but our cassettes are dying at a rapid pace, leaving them with a limited selection in our listening center.
My students attend a Title I school in Indiana that is diverse ethnically and socioeconomically.
Our school is dedicated to providing each student with the highest quality of education that reflects the technological age in which they live. Each student is encouraged to become lifelong learners and strive for success each and every day.
A new and updated Listening Center will help us to replace the countless books on tape we have lost recently. So many of our favorite books are packed away because the cassette tapes no longer work or the cassette players available are unable to be fixed. With the addition of a CD player with IPOD docking station, we can bring the lost tapes of our listening center back to life and save them for future first graders to enjoy. The new technology will also allow for additional books to be purchased and made available because we will have access to the countless amounts of audio books that we can now play, listen to, and learn from in our classroom.
Being a student and teacher in the 21st century is all about the technology.
Trying to reach and teach students with limited technology makes learning challenging and teaching even more of a hurdle. With a new listening center, my students could have access to so many more fiction and non-fiction books than our current library of books on tape can provide. Anytime young readers are exposed to great books, they build a lifelong love of reading and learning that is priceless.
