My students need transmitters and receivers to help with translating for a growing ESL population.
All students deserve a chance to succeed and interact with their teacher and peers. All parents deserve to know what is happening in their child's education. These will help make sure all students and parents are being communicated with accurately and fairly to create equal opportunities.
My students are from an urban public school.
They are in a public high school for some of the top achievers in the district. They are in an International Baccalaureate School, where they have to maintain a certain GPA in order to remain. This will be their first year in the building and will face high expectation and have to work very hard. However, this is also a high poverty rate school. We also have a consistently growing ESL population, with a budget that does not increase to address this growth. This means that more of the financial responsibility is falling on individual teachers, who consistently give everything to their students.
These will be amazing tools that will be used in a variety of ways. This will allow speakers' words to be translated for individuals. For example, when there is a speaker who only speaks English, a separate translator has the microphone while all the individuals who speak Spanish have a receiver and headphones. Then the translation will automatically transmit to their headphones. Thus, they get all the same information without interrupting the presentation. This can also be used with parents at meetings to make sure all parents receive information.
With state education financing, we are operating on less money for more students, especially more ESL students.
The difference this can make for ESL students and their families almost cannot be expressed. Often these students and families are left trying to make sense of what is happening with only certain pieces of information; this will makes sure they receive all the same information as every other student.Read More
