Our school system is in a rural county with a low-income/high poverty ratio, and I want to keep the world available to our precious students. This year I am working with two eager third graders who are thirsty for information about the world around them. Like most students, this little boy and girl are excited to learn, explore, and soak up information. However, they are uniquely set apart from their peers because one is deaf and the other is hard-of-hearing.
They just need to see it!
Imagine talking about the word "hippopotamus" without knowing what it is, what it does, or what it looks like, but the moment you see a picture, your mind instantly makes new connections. Oftentimes, this experience represents our daily routine. Before introducing new ideas and abstract concepts, we must first establish what others might assume to be the basics, and the easiest way to do that is through illustration or physical demonstration.
Despite the challenges set before them, these two young minds are eager for each new opportunity to learn. Thank you for helping me to bring the world's wealth of information to them!
Children love to dance, move, and express themselves though music. Deaf students are no exception, but often times musical sounds alone are not enough to create the immersive experience others get to enjoy.
These sound-activated laser lights will transform the musical experience for Deaf students!
Instead of the basic vibrations and observed movements of others, sound-activated lights will allow Deaf and hard-of-hearing students to revel first-hand in the joy of rhythm and music. Music and dance is not only a personal expression, but also a great way to learn and memorize material, exercise, and socialize with peers. We will be able to use these lights during music education class, Physical Education, the general education classroom, and after-school activities such as dances and fund-raising events. I am so excited to broaden the scope and experience of music for my students...can't you see it...the joy and enthusiasm in their faces when they can SEE the music?
