Can You Hear Me Now?

My Students

My students are sixth and seventh graders at a public middle school in Los Angeles. They are happy, social children who love to do hands-on activities. They have better attendance and retain far more information when we create art related to their studies.

The majority of my students come from economically disadvantaged households.

They face many barriers when it comes to equal access including lack of access to technology both in their homes and in the community as well as basic supplies. We are a unique school that incorporates the visual and performing arts into all curricular areas. We dance and sing and create through math, history, and science!

My Project

This year we are using more technology in our math classes. We have a dedicated math lab which the kids use on a weekly basis. This year I am using the math program IXL as well as Khan Academy and Learn Zillion. I can create lessons and the students can listen to those lesson, but they can also solve problems in which they record their process and record their voice in the process. Unfortunately we do not have headphones and some of them are missing out on and having to share. They cannot listen to a Khan video on their own, they cannot listen to the explanation of a math concept, and they cannot listen to something I recorded or another classmate has recorded. The headphones would open a great window of learning in my classroom.

In addition, having headphones reduces the distractions in class and allows students to give their full attention to their math tasks.

The donation of headphones would improve my classroom by allowing them to use the programs to their fullest extent. In this I also believe that their excitement to learn different math concepts will improve. As a result, I expect to see the standardized math test scores to improve!
