My Students

We live in a small, agricultural community where 89% of the students at our school come from low-income families. I have the pleasure and privilege of working with the 4th-5th grade students at my school to enrich their education using technology. Every week, I meet with each class for a total of two and a half hours. They learn how to use various Google Apps for Education tools, online research skills, coding, typing, and more.

When my students enter my classroom, they are excited and motivated to learn the computer skills needed to build their foundation for a successful future.

My Project

I'm requesting high-quality headphones for my technology class. Currently, students are using low-grade earbuds that break easily and constantly need to be replaced. Instead of requesting for individual earbuds, I'm requesting a class set of 30 headsets with microphones for my students to share when they come to my room.

We use headphones on a daily basis with our technology activities.

When earbuds break, many students aren't able to fully participate until they are replaced, which may take days.

One activity that these headphones will assist with is our journey into podcasting and video blogging. Having built-in microphones will allow students to record their podcasts and video blogs without the noise interference of other classmates.

Another activity we will use headphones for is learning to code. Various instructional videos include audio with step-by-step lessons that help my students further explore the world of coding. Ultimately, these headphones will allow my students to enhance their listening skills and auditory comprehension.
