Can You Hear me Now?

Help me give my students headphones so that they can each individually focus on their chrome books without being distracted by other students working on their projects.

My Students

Our students are an amazing group of students, who, no matter the odds, always push themselves to do their best. Their perseverance is inspiring, and they come from low-income backgrounds and many are emergent bilinguals. Our school is a high poverty school, and these students, who are mainly Latino, are excited to learn and ready to succeed, but need the tools to aid in their understanding of the curriculum.

My students are engaged, curious, and ready to continue expanding their learning through different medias!

My innovators are ready to be creative and pursue their ambitions! All they need to keep trucking on are the tools to succeed!

My Project

My students would love headphones for their chrome books! Currently we only have about half a class set of old headphones so the classroom is pretty noisy when the students are all working on the chrome books. It can get pretty distracting when the person next to you is working and you can't hear what your chrome book is asking of you.

Having headphones would allow students to focus on their differentiated instruction at their seats without being distracted by what someone else in the room is doing.

Allowing each student to have a pair of headphones would allow me to incorporate more learning opportunities for each student. Some students can use a program like Starfall or Lexia or Rosetta Stone to help them learn English and phonics. Other students enjoy listening to books being read on Epic. The possibilities would be endless if each student had a set of headphones.
