Mr. Dobert from Chicago IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Diverse Learners Can't Read What Is on the Screen!

My students need headphones for our computer lab. My Diverse Learners need these in order to listen to audio books, have screen text read to them, and to watch instructional/informational videos.

My Students

"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all." - Aristotle

I teach Occupational and Life Skills curriculum at a large, urban high school.

My students have a range of disabilities including learning and intellectual disabilities, visual and hearing impairments, autism, as well as health and other physical impairments. Many of them are also English Language Learners and almost all of them come from low-income households. My students show greater enthusiasm and achievement when learning is interactive, interesting, and includes technology and high-interest reading materials.

My Project

The Diverse Learners in my classroom utilize our computer lab in order to listen to audio books, turn on text reading software, or watch informational/instructional videos.

I teach at a high poverty school and many of my students do not own a personal set of headphones to use.

They often have to listen over the sound of multiple computers with audio running at the same time and that makes it hard for them to concentrate and hear what is important to them. I have even had students try to share their own in-ear headphones, which is not the most sanitary! My students benefit from having text read aloud to them, since many of them are struggling readers.
