Attention Pod People: Can You Hear It Now?

My school needs 40 pairs of headphones for our new computer lab.

Our school is a K-5 neighborhood elementary school of just under 600 eager students and 30 dedicated teachers. We're located in the heart of the Silicon Valley in Northern California and teach everything you can imagine...reading, writing, math, science, social studies, art, music, pe, technology...you name it!

Last year, we were able to purchase new computers for our school's computer lab. While we are all very excited by our new lab, we no longer have money in our technology budget to buy the accessories that will allow our teachers to effectively integrate technology into their instruction. Additionally, our lab runs down the middle of a pod of five classrooms. There are no walls or doors separating the classrooms from the lab, so all noise travels right into the classrooms. This is where your kindness and generosity comes in!

We are requesting headphones that can be plugged-in to the lab's computers so that students will be able to use the programs and learning games that utilize sound without interrupting the classrooms in the pod surrounding the lab.

With your help, our school will be able to better prepare our students for success in the technology-driven world in which they live. Any assistance you can provide will be much appreciated by all of our students and teachers!
