Mrs. Krentz from Buffalo NY is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Enhancing Audio and Visual Integration in the Classroom

Help me give my students the ability to access audio content independently on their 1:1 device to learn at their own pace and allowing me the opportunity to link my iPad to the Smartboard for ease of modeling.

My Students

Greetings! I work in a dual-language public school where our students are learning half the day in English and half the day in Spanish. We have sixty 5th grade students who rotate primarily to two core classrooms. Many of our students have been together since pre-k and really value the cultural differences of their peers.

Our students are eager learners and love to engage in meaningful lessons and conversations.

I am always looking for new technology and tools to engage and enhance the learning of my students

My Project

This will allow my students to review and preview content at their own pace using their iPads. They can watch videos, practice their listening skills, listen to a story read aloud, or even simply enjoy a wide variety of music while working independently through the use of headphones.

I'll also be able to model lessons or simply read a text aloud to the class allowing them to follow along on the smartboard through the use of the linking cable.

Our class focuses on reading and having the students be able to read along with me is invaluable. It'll make learning more visual and auditory for my students.
