Can You Hear That? It's the Sound of Individualized Learning!

My students need a set of 30 headphones with mics to help them focus on their learning and more effectively use the apps available to them!

My Students

My Students

I teach an inquisitive group of third graders in an inner-city public school in Arizona.

With over 90% of our students on the Free and Reduced Lunch Program one might think that our students are poor, but they would be far from the truth in doing so! What our children lack in money, they make up for in their curiosity and desire to learn! My room is the home for the gifted students at my grade level, and they have an insatiable appetite for information.

I have been told that as a teacher I help to create the future, but the truth is that the creative minds in my care hold the keys to greatness within them and they can change the world regardless of their socioeconomic status!

We are fortunate in our district to have 1 to 1 devices in the form of Chromebooks. Students are able to work on them daily in programs that allow me to individualize my instruction to meet the needs of all the different levels of learners I have.

My Project

Asking for 30 nice, durable headphones seems like such a unusual and simple request, but after having purchased earbuds for my students for the last few years, I have found that they are not able to withstand the 'love" that 3rd graders lavish on them and they end up falling apart. I always ask students to bring their own headphones or earbuds for class use, but many of them can't afford them. In today's technology based world, it is imperative that students are well versed with technology and how to use it. Many of the software titles and apps that are used in my classroom include tutorials with video instruction, so it is important that the students are able to listen carefully and concentrate.

These headphones will allow students to focus on their independent computer sessions and do away with disrupting their neighbors or other classmates.

A classroom free of disruption will help lead my students toward being successful and productive as they learn how to use and make sense of technology.
