The students in my school are full of energy, wonder and enthusiasm. They come from various cultures, speak different languages and many of their families are struggling economically. They attend a culturally diverse school where seventy percent of the students receive a free or reduced-price lunch in the state of Washington.
Aside from the cultural and economic differences in our student population, you'll find that our amazing students are eager to learn and are trying to build successful lives that will be happy and productive.
Have you ever struggled with something in school, became frustrated, and just wanted to give up? I have students with special needs that struggle everyday. As a teacher, I want my students to have access to technology that will enhance their learning experience and help them gain confidence.
My middle school students will use the earbuds in various ways throughout the school year.
For example, they will be able to use publication programs and software without being disruptive or disrupted by others to create and publish their written work.
Students will be able to access the internet, where they can conduct research, practice skills, review concepts, and learn new material such as coding from Code.org. With simple earbuds available at all times the students will have access to a wide range of resources that will enhance learning and further understanding in all content areas. Students will also have an opportunity to learn how to properly use the internet to gain a perspective of the global community in which they live. With these earbuds the possibilities are endless! The earbuds along with the computers we have will provide a boost in student engagement across the curriculum. Learning through technology stimulates student thinking and makes learning fun.
