My students are 5 to 10 years old, with moderate to profound hearing loss, using hearing aids and/or cochlear implants to support communication by speaking and/or signing in American Sign Language. Most of my students are Spanish-English bilinguals and English language learners. They attend self-contained special education classes within a general education school to promote inclusion with typically-developing peers.
Our Speech and Language sessions incorporate both paper-based and digital materials, and we need to make sure they are all organized and accessible.
My students are wonderful, hardworking students who deserve the best tools to help them succeed!
My students have made great strides with the materials our wonderful supporters provided in past projects. One thing that we continue to struggle with is having an accessible/mobile unit that can keep our devices regularly charged and can also organize paper-based materials for hands-on work.
We use both technology and hands-on paper materials in Speech and Language, but our devices and materials are not always easy to access or adjust to support a flexible learning setup.
The Flex-Space Media Tower will be used in several different ways. First, it will help organize the many cords and cables associated with digital learning and ensure that devices are fully charged at all times. The cabinets will store and organize student files and monthly-themed materials so they can be quickly accessed during lessons and parent trainings. Finally, the rolling cart can be relocated and locked in place to create an distraction-free standing desk for students who need to stand up and wiggle while they work.
