Can You Hear It Now? Headphones Help!

My students need headphones for computer-based learning activities. Many of our school’s mandatory programs require the use of headphones.

My Students

I have a phenomenal group of 6 and 7 year old first grade learners. My students come from a variety of backgrounds but they all have a huge desire to learn. I love being their teacher and mentor. My boys and girls love being able to hear stories read to them on the computer. They also love to learn math algorithms with the help of audible lessons on our computer programs. My students get so excited when it's time to learn with the help of technology!

My Project

Our students are required to buy headphones in addition to the regular yearly school supplies. Most of our students' families are unable to purchase this needed supply due to financial hardships. Even when the students purchase headphones they are very inexpensive and thus cheaply made and brake or fall apart quickly after a few uses. Our school is 80% free and reduced-price lunch.

Headphones for our differentiated learning centers and required computer-based programs would increase student learning significantly.

Being able to listen to books being read increases literacy skills. Listening and playing educational games increase engagement and engagement increases learning!
